Burning Questions? Red Hot answers.

Why do I need a professional design agency when I can get a logo online?

You get what you pay for. Opting to have your logo designed through an online source is tempting, and trust us, we get that it seems like a ‘great deal’. While you may get a quick and dirty logo that looks great, here are some other things to consider as you go through your selection process:

  • Will you receive your new logo in such a way that you can use it across all mediums? Logos aren’t a one size fits all type of thing. Ideally, you’ll want your logo supplied in colour, in reverse, in vertical and horizontal layouts, possibly with and without a slogan, and you’ll need each of these options in a whole bunch of different file types.
  • Is the logo you’ve purchased still available for others, like your competition, to buy?
  • Will your designer invest the time to understand your vision and your goals? Will they think big picture and acknowledge that your logo is a part of your brand identity and thus needs to work alongside other elements?

What is the difference between a brand and a logo?

Your face is the first thing people see when they meet you. Beyond your face – why do people remember you? What about how you made them feel? This is where your brand comes in. Your brand is the extension of what you are at the core. It communicates a feeling that your customers perceive both factually and emotionally. It’s memorable. Once your brand is established, it becomes an identity in the public eye, it has a personality, not just a face (logo). Your designer at Cayenne will work with you to develop consumer perceptions that accurately reflect your brand.

What are the benefits of working with an R.G.D versus a regular designer?

Registered Graphic Designers are design thinkers. At Cayenne Creative, all of our designers are RGDs. As RGDs, we ensure that all aspects of your communication goals are fully integrated into your concept, design and messaging. We provide you with more than just the visuals alone. We will do the industry, market and product research required to ensure your brand is positioned correctly and competitively. An RGD is like having a wizard in your back pocket!

I have a design in mind. Can you help make it happen?

Absolutely! As design thinkers, we drop your idea into our creative analysis process – interpreting your target audience, reviewing your external brand perception, considering the message and execution type and ultimately testing for suitability and effectiveness in the marketplace. The result? A design that is more than what you had originally imagined.

Is print really dead?

Think that print is dead? Definitely not – but how you use it matters. Cayenne can give you successful strategies to grow your business with whichever medium meets your communication goals.

Do you do decals?

Decals are huge! We’ve seen a resurgence in vehicle wraps – including full truck and trailer wraps, public transport wraps, lawn signs, fully customized binders, custom printed stickers you can apply anywhere, and endless indoor and outdoor signage. Get SEEN with the spiciest wraps in the city. Ask us about decals.

There are a lot of design agencies, why Cayenne Creative?

Don’t just take our word for it! If we haven’t convinced you yet that we are THE agency of choice, see what everyone else it saying about us. Most of our clients come to us as referrals, which is a pretty great thing. Once you’re done reading our reviews, give us a call or set up a Zoom meeting to say hello. Let’s start the conversation and then you can decide if we’re the right fit.

What are the fees for creative services?

At Cayenne, we always strive for the impossible utopia of quality, price and speed. However, in most circumstances, only two options can be met. It’s up to you to choose which criteria are the most important for your project.
