We may be small, but we like to think big.
Indalma Creative is a small, full-service design studio with big ideas. From logos to annual reports, ads to packaging, social media and website content to marketing campaigns and brand identities, we’ve built an extensive portfolio of print and online material for clients across Vancouver, and right here at home in South Delta.
That’s our “official” profile, but here’s what we really want you to know...
How We Work
We ask questions. Lots of questions.
We want to understand your business and your market, learn about your strengths and challenges, know what your goals are, and find out about your favorite everything!
We want to know where you are now, and where you’d like to go. It’s our job to help you clarify what you want and to figure out how we can help you achieve it – it’s no coincidence that Indalma means “vision” in Greek.
We listen to your answers.
We listen. Really, really well. We note your likes and dislikes, we create solutions that fit your budget, and we don’t try to sell you on something that will make us look good, but that won’t help you. We may be designers, but we’re also practical business people who believe that your creative has to work just as hard as you do and
We constantly ask, “What’s in it for them?”
It’s our favorite question and one that we keep coming back to in different ways over the course of working with you. “What’s in it for your target audience?” Does our creative connect with them and show them why they should choose you? “What’s in it for you?” How is this piece/campaign/brand identity going to get results for your business?
We think about solutions. And ask more questions.
This is the part where we think about how to connect and engage with your market. We come up with strategies and concepts:
scribble on paper, brainstorm, research, and ask more questions...until we have a plan.
We share your story with the world.
This is our favourite part. Great stories connect with your market’s hearts and minds. Great stories make them act. And the very best stories get shared. From concept and strategy through to design and execution – using creative visuals and engaging copy – we work to tell your story in the most compelling and effective way possible.
What We Believe In
Having our clients’ backs.
What does that mean? It means that we think about you and your business almost as much as you do. If we see an opportunity, we’ll tell you. If you’re unsure about something, we’ll talk it through with you. And if something’s not up to snuff, we’ll go to bat for you. From our first meeting, we keep our eye on what you want to achieve and help you get there.
Doing good work.
Some people might call us obsessive, but we can live with that.
Good work gets results and helps our clients succeed. Otherwise, what’s the point?
We might just be making you a business card, but we’re curious about where it could take you.
Collaborating, exploring and having a laugh.
In our experience, the best creative is born when you have permission to explore. When you can float that wacky idea, that outrageous concept, that brilliant – or so you thought at the time – new way of doing things. From that starting point, the best ideas evolve.
When we come into the studio, we check our egos at the door, unpack our sense of humour, and get ready to play. And we invite our clients to do the same. Because when we work together, good creative becomes great creative.
Who We Are
If you’ve read this far, you probably have a strong sense of how we roll and what we stand for.
What else? Well, since 2004, we’ve operated out of an obsessively organized design studio in South Delta, BC, where the kettle is always on and the scone fairy visits frequently. We’re a small, tight-knit creative team that expands and contracts according to the needs of a project. And our fearless leader is owner and principal graphic designer, Angela McGregor – after more than 20 years in the industry, she knows how to take a meeting.
