Hadley and Raelyn are an important part of what goes on “behind the scenes” at Revealed Creative, providing inspiration and showing exceptional creativity. Hadley is 5, and wise beyond her years. A true extrovert, Hadley finds her happy place around as many friends as possible. She is one of the most observant little kids we know, and loves learning logos. At 3, Raelyn is proving to be just as animated as her sister, with a daredevil streak in her. Anything but laid back, Rae (a nod to lady Eames herself) has an extremely determined and persistent personality.
We believe in being transparent with those we work with and those we work for. We love questions and the opportunity to share our expertise. We don’t believe that design is magic, and we don’t think that we should hold back any “secrets”. You want to know how we came up with a concept? Why we chose a specific color? What’s included on your invoice? What are our favorite pizza toppings? Simply ask and we’ll let you know!
Of course we believe in this! We feel that fairness should be listed simply because we want to remove the doubt and stereotypes that can often come to mind with designers. We don’t strive to provide the cheapest or fastest product just to get something “out the door”, but instead work to provide the most effective pieces at fair costs. We provide you with costs upfront, and work diligently to turn your project around in an appropriate time.
Communication is our business. We strive to create designs that communicate well with your audience, clearly portraying who you are and what you do. We believe that success in this area is achieved through dialogues with you, in questions and answers, and consistent communication. Email tends to work best in many cases, but we will also call, text, Skype, Snapchat, or smoke signal- however you prefer to keep in touch!
Sometimes the truth hurts, and we will certainly do our best to soften the blow, but we don’t hesitate to have honest conversations with our clients to let them know why we think something may or may not be in the best interest of the brand. We also know that you may not agree with everything that we envision, and we value honest feedback. It’s this back and forth between our clients and our team that creates a product that is a cut above the rest.
You've poured everything you have into your business and your products and services speak for themselves. Let’s give them a bigger voice.
