Speak To Customers' Unconscious Desires
Establishing a strong brand means putting forth a positive image, consistently. Whether you're communicating with your friends, followers, clients, or colleagues, you leave a signature on everything you do, as does your business.
On average, it takes approximately seven interactions with a brand before customers will begin to trust it and consider a purchase. This means that every point of engagement between the customer and the business needs to be positive, impressionable, and leave the customer wanting more.
This is where brand design plays an important role: in the form of logos, stationery, graphics for online ads, and much more. Every visual form of communication that comes from your business needs to reflect your business's values and amplify your business's message
Logos & Logotypes
Trust In The Creative Process
Our talented team of designers bring a wide-range of styles which offer a variety of design options for new projects. When it comes to logo design- options, details, and proofing are what allow designs to rise to the top in terms of customer trust and loyalty. You can actually see the effort that was put in to their creation, and often times, they hold a power of their own after they've been made. Not only do logos identify a brand, they can also symbolize cultural movements.
We make the painstaking effort to make sure your final brand image is exactly what you want. Your logo is your business's fingerprint- it should be unique and yours to share with the world.I Need A Logo!

Finish Your Pitch Strong With A Unique Design
It's not just about the design, but it certainly helps if a unique business card is followed up from an excellent pitch. Recent data suggests that approximately 88% of business cards handed out are thrown out in less than one week. With a custom-made design that was carefully thought out, prospects will be forced, unconsciously, to think harder about your brand and what it can offer them.
Sure, VistaPrint is great in a pinch, but there's nothing special about their designs. Business owners who want to make a deeper impression on their prospects after a meeting should give us a call.I Want One Of These Cards!

What is SEO?
...And How Does It Work?
When you type out a question or some keywords in Google Search, how do you think Google filters the best results for your query? It's no secret that Google uses a complex algorithm for it's Search feature, however, you may notice that certain websites show up a lot more favorably than others do on Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs). This is because Google "favors" these websites moreso than others, and likely chances are, these websites are already optimized for search engines.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a marketing process that takes advantage of specific metrics search engines use to determine how information is listed on SERPs. Websites that show up more consistently and higher on search listings usually have higher SEO scores than websites that are not optimized properly. The ultimate goal for any SEO campaign is to increase brand visibility so the brand can generate more organic traffic, and by association, generate more high-quality leads for the business.
The #1 spot on Google takes 35% of all web traffic in their niche
By having your website read higher on search listings, you can acquire leads that are already looking for you. SEO is a long-term, low risk / high reward marketing strategy, which, on average, not only pays for itself over time but also has the potential to keep working for you long after campaigns are over.

Scale Your Business Capacity Quickly and Powerfully
If you're here now reading this, you understand that the future of your business is online.
You understand that cold-calling customers doesn't work, and that just having a Facebook Page or a blog on your website isn't enough to generate the leads and buyers you need for business to be profitable. You have a suspicion that there's more out there for you, and you're not wrong- you've actually come to the right place.
We're inviting you to take advantage of our knowledge.
In our own pursuits for success, we've learned what works and what doesn't. The big secret in the online world is that there is no such thing as scarcity. There are over 7 billion people on the planet, and over 350 million in America alone. Numbers alone should tell you there are already people looking for you and what you have to offer, so there is no reason you shouldn't be successful.
Every single service offered on this website integrates with all of the other services, like a giant spider web.
A well-made design cannot be as effective without generating traffic, and likewise, generating traffic alone isn't as effective with poorly made designs or clear calls to action. Save time, money, and effort by getting everything done right, the first time.
Business owners who are serious about scaling their business have come to the right place, because we really do it all!
Stunning, Custom Tailored Websites
Robust Themes • Responsive Web Design • Cross Platform / Cross Browser Compatibility • Optimized Performance
Build A Tool, Not A Brochure
Many elements make up a strong web design. The best websites you can think of bring together the hybrid of technical and aesthetic excellence.
However, not all websites are created equal, and being able to create clean, adaptable web designs is a must in the today's online-driven economy. It's not just about making a website look good - it's about building a website that move people to take action. Efficient web designs make websites run faster, perform better across variable browsers and platforms, and allows search engines to pinpoint sites more easily. Stronger web designs allows a business to scale it's capacity and increase it's overall ROI.
Our Design Philosophy
We value simplicity and objective-driven results in how websites perform, and proudly serve a wide variety of clientele in the San Francisco Bay Area and nationwide. Using a variety of frameworks like Twitter Bootstrap, Foundation, and Wordpress, we provide clients with beautiful designs that perform exceptionally and integrate seamlessly with aggressive marketing strategies.
A majority of our clients enjoy using the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today. A WordPress website combines the best of design aesthetics, performance and DIY maintenance.
Custom builds are for applications and other frameworks that require out-of-the-box solutions. Clients who choose custom designs value technical performance or have a project they are looking to implement that all-in-one solutions cannot.
SCC is proudly involved with a few open-source web projects that target social initiatives. Recent projects involve mapping children's services in Haiti, as well as live mapping for national disaster cleanup efforts.
Are you looking to start a movement? NationBuilder websites provide a powerful backbone for building websites and applications that need to perform at a massive scale. Perfect for nonprofits, political groups, and national/international brands.
Technical Craftsmanship Meets Narrative Storytelling
Perhaps the one of the largest details left out in the web design world is knowing how to tell stories in a digital medium. The fastest website in the world won't do you a bit of good if it cannot clearly communicate your message effectively or drive users to take action.
With us, you can rest assured that your site will not only showcase a beautiful design, but it will clearly communicate your brand's values and how newcomers can get involved. A website built by Straub Creative Company will deliver power, speed, and will implicitly make sense, providing users with a positive experience and an lasting impression.
