Speak To Customers' Unconscious Desires With Non-Verbal Communication
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 mold and shape movements, and reflect the community values they aim to represent.
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 your 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!

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 massive amounts of leads and buyers for your product or service.
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, so there is no reason you shouldn't be successful too!
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 with a means to capture customer data, and likewise, generating traffic alone isn't as effective with poorly made designs or clear calls to action, and so on.
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. Technical points such as page load speed, optimized code, and relevant links; aesthetic elements like color theming, impact, and responsiveness, and of course lots and lots of relevant markup, <p>like this paragraph example</p>!
But not all websites are created equal, and being able to create clean, adaptable web designs is a must in the today's web industry. It's not just about making a website look good - it's about building a strong front-end framework that can tell compelling stories and generate conversions. 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 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 beyond. Using a variety of tools like HTML5 Bootstrap, Foundation, and Wordpress, we provide clients with beautiful designs that perform exceptionally and powerfully integrate 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.
These websites use custom front-end programming for pixel-perfect results. Clients who choose custom designs value technical performance and speed more than anything else.
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 disaster mapping for national cleanup efforts.
Does your vision need a powerful backbone? NationBuilder websites serve as rock-solid foundations for building powerful websites and applications. 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 to maximize conversions and user engagement. A website built by Straub Creative Company will deliver power, speed, and will implicitly make sense for new users, which means more prospects for you or your business.
