DesignMissoula focuses on helping you make a connection with your customers through effective marketing. We like to think of it as uniting community and design. And while eye-catching graphics and traffic-driving web site optimization are fun and challenging projects, the passion behind it is for a greater good: helping serve our community. Our client roster includes small businesses, corporations, and various other organizations, but we like to balance that with pro-bono (that’s fancy talk for “free,” in case you haven’t watched any John Grisham movies lately) services for non-profit groups working in the trenches to make our community a better place for everyone. That’s why we offer free graphic or web design services to one non-profit each month. We devote our time and resources to promoting their services more effectively in order to reach the people in their communities they are striving to help.
DesignMissoula’s team consists of marketing professionals with experience in very specialized areas, including graphic design, web design, and search engine optimization.
Your mother always told you, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” It’s no wonder she had to repeat it so often. Humans are designed to make snap decisions based in great part on visual cues. That’s why advertising and marketing relies on trained professionals to create visually appealing materials. DesignMissoula specializes in powerful graphic design — not just pretty, but planned. There’s a reason we choose a specific font or set of colors. These seemingly subtle details have the power to create a subconscious reaction in your customers. We also love the challenge of combining your verbal message with the most effective design. Along with getting it al layed out, we’re pretty good at negotiating reasonable print prices, too.

Search Engine Optimization:
Remember Tic-Tac-Toe? For all its simplicity, it’s a strategy game. The person best able to predict an opponent’s next move wins. (Well, owning the center square also helps.) Web sites are kind of like that, only on two levels. First, you have to be able to predict how your customers search online. Second, you have to be able to predict what a search engine will focus on in your web content. The goal is to wind up number one in the search rankings. Sound complicated? DesignMissoula is really good at strategy games. We excel at identifying key search terms and strategically sprinkling them throughout the web page to boost your search rankings. Higher search rankings means more traffic to your web site. More traffic to your web site means more opportunities to connect with customers. Contact DesignMissoula to talk about how we can improve your web site performance.
DesignMissoula believes we have a duty to give back to the community that supports our business. For us, that takes the form of using our professional skills to further the causes of local non-profits. Every month, we choose one non-profit and donate time to help them get the word out about their services. Those services can range from assistance for domestic violence victims to making art accessible for the entire community. We’re proud to stand by these important organizations.
