At Thynk, we value our clients’ creative identities, and offer solutions that sync with their strategic aspirations.
We have worked with agencies all over the world to develop brands and bring the client's vision to life.
Our 6-Step Process
In order to complete the proposed Brand Refresh and Website Design/Development project, Thynk will walk through the following process with 3Q Digital.
Research & DiscoveryEvery design project begins with a thorough research and discovery phase where we gather all the necessary details about your company, its target market, challenges, expected end goals and more. Within this Discovery phase, we will begin building the brand.
Brand and UX DesignAfter some research and discovery, our next step is to align our findings with proven design strategies, organize our content and story into layouts and modules streamlined for conversion. Brand Guidelines will be set in motion, and applied throughout the rest of the process.
User Interface DesignWe continue our design process through user interface design, where we explore interfaces, color, icons and font treatments to streamline navigation, establish a simple and intuitive content hierarchy and enhance the overall brand aesthetic.
Art DirectionVisual storytelling is key to setting the overall aesthetic of the brand, it also sets the mood and feel of any digital, print or live experience. Our art directors help bring brands and experiences to life through the use of photography, video, color, and typeface treatment.
ProductionWorking with the right design partner is not everything; you also need a production partner that has the know-how to deliver an efficient, cost-productive, high-quality final product, experience, and or overall campaign.
Testing and OptimizationTo ensure everything we design is optimized to give the best results, we fully embrace the design, test, optimize and repeat process to ensure we are delivering the best results for our clients.
Client: 3Q Digital
3Q Digital is looking to refresh their brand to give the company a look and feel that stands above the competition. While the logo remains the same, the elements that surround it need to be upgraded. 3Q Digital is also looking to deliver a new UI/UX experience with an updated website. Designed and developed specifically for the WordPress/Elementor platform.
Thynk Design Group will develop the brand refresh to stand out in the marketplace with a more mature representation of who 3Q Digital is. While refreshing the brand, Thynk will design and develop a new user experience for the web. This new website will revolve around the new brand and will be a representation of 3Q Digital's new growth marketing strategies.

|Step 1: Brand interview
We need to get to the bottom of who you are, what you stand for and who you stand beside. Only then can we begin to create a brand that portrays the value you offer in a way that resonates with the people who matter: the people you want to do business with.
|Step 2: Design presentation
Three new brand concepts will be designed. Naturally, there will be a common theme but we try to think outside the box and come up with something that isn't obvious. This is often where the best ideas come from.
|Step 3: Brand Development
From the chosen brand concept, we would develop it further. Diving into all of the intricacies that will make 3Q stand out. These intricacies include font sizes, photo styles, animations... really everything that will take the brand to the next level.
