“...The care that Topping Consulting takes to understand your business, how you want to portray yourself, and the meaning you want behind your logo is so special. They use the best tools in the industry for graphic design and Deanne also does hand drawn elements too. SO cool.”

“I've had the pleasure of working with Deanne on several projects. She not only has an eye for quality design and branding, but she is also a talented project manager. The projects we have worked on together have always been well-planned and well-executed. Add to that her fun and engaging personality, which always makes a work relationship more fun.”

Design is a multi surfaced, multi strategy item. It may generally be on a flat surface, but it's not flat... because it needs to be consistent and easily recognizable based on the brand. Even a rack card needs to speak to the viewers and solve their problems before they even knew they had one!
We commit to understanding your business and your customers' needs, then throw it down awesome design, print, and digital elements to grow your business, one design strategy at a time.

Creative Direction

Let's get technical. Photography plays an integral part in the feel and look of the brand. It needs to be implemented in just the right way to make way for ad copy, websites, print pieces, product feature/styled images. and ad strategy. There's always stock photography, but when looking to create your individual look, you need custom.

Our skills are great - but we also know when we need to pull from some of the awesome talent pool that's out there. We do creative direction for food and product for professional photographers and will bring them in on a project when we know it's best for you.
We've done the photography for most of the items on this site.
