What we do:
We're a creative marketing boutique that caters to the social media savvy, multimedia craving, tiny-fish-in-a-big-pond, small biz entrepreneur and fierce freelancer. We LOVE starting from scratch but can also hop in on something you've started with blood, sweat and caffeine. If you're looking to bring on extra help for a launch, rebrand or just to get the creative side off your entrepreneurial shoulders, we got you boo!
Complete Branding Concepts
You’ve got the goods (or services) but have no idea where to start. We conceptualize a cohesive branding plan, complete with logo design, brand guidelines and audience development.
Take a peek at an example here.
Logo? Check! Elevator pitch? Check! Colors, fonts and all the fun visual elements? Check! Now, it’s time to put your goods online. We’re a Squarespace family here! Sorry, no WordPress or HTML builds from scratch at Checkmark.
We love Squarespace and if you want a professional to build it and then pass all the controls over to you? This is THE PLATFORM to use for that! Take a look at one of our custom sites here (this beauty you’re on right now was built through Squarespace).
