BRAND MANAGEMENT

You. You could’ve done anything you wanted to. Anything in the world. And you chose this. This thing that you’re passionate about. Hey, we’re proudaya.

But now comes the hard part – answering those existential questions about your brand. Who are you? Why are you here? What is the meaning of all this?!

At Tough Guppy, we’ll help you strip away all of the nonsense and get to the core of who you are and what you want to present to the world. Because we believe that creating a clear, positive, relevant and well articulated philosophy behind your business will ensure a consistency in how it’s perceived by your clients, customers and communities – leaving them with no question as to whom they trust with their business.

WEBSITES

Do we make websites? Oh yeah, we make the best websites. Why? See all the other buttons down here with all the other stuff we do? Well, we combine all of these talents to create custom, cutting-edge sites that guarantee your brand will look its best on the web. From standard 3-pagers to E-commerce to animations using HTML5 to social networking to apps, our programmers will make sure that your end result lives up to our ridiculously high standards.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Remember the weird kid in class with the Wayfarer glasses and whose doodles looked like intricate M.C. Escher sketches? Well, we’re those weird kids all grown up. Instead of a Michael Jordan poster, we had one of A Collection of Postmodern Scandinavian Chairs. (After all, Vernon Panton was the Michael Jordan of chair designers.) We here at Tough Guppy live and breath design. We keep up with the latest trends and cutting edge techniques, while still recognizing the value and importance of a classic look. Our team integrates graphic design into every fabric of digital marketing while focusing on the development and success of your brand. Whatever your need – graphics for your website, logos, flyers, business cards, brochures, posters, motion graphics for video, packaging – we’ll make sure it’s visually engaging and aesthetically pleasing.

PHOTOGRAPHY

A picture is worth a thousand words! Seeing is believing! Other overused photography-related sayings! You don’t need us to tell you how important photography is to selling – whether it be a product or yourself. In our Culver City studio or on-location, our talented photographers use crisp, professional lighting and strong, graphic compositions that result in captivating images. We’re also Photoshop experts, so your photos are exceptional, and not just another cliché.

COPYWRITING

Einstein was no Hemingway and, quite frankly, neither are you. But it’s cool, cause you’ve got Tough Guppy’s talented team of copy writers to do it for you.

Unlike other copywriting services, we take the time to interview and understand our clients’ individual perspective and tone, enabling us to truly “write in their voice.” This well-written, powerful content results in a deeper connection with the reader.

Whether it be the “about” section of your website, staff biographies, press releases, SEO content, video scripts, or newsletters, you can trust us to create content that eloquently and succinctly conveys your point of view. See, we use words like eloquently and succinctly; you’re gonna be just fine.

SOCIAL NETWORKING

Social media is a wonderful tool on which revolutions were started. It’s also an annoying place where you’re bombarded with cat pictures. But that’s what’s so great about it – It can be whatever you want it to be. And Tough Guppy can help conceptualize what it should be for you. We can plan interesting strategies where your customers want, nay need, to follow you. We can ghost-write Tweets or Facebook and Blog posts to engage your customers. We can make beautiful Instagrams and Pinterest posts. We can create videos or Vines to help your business go viral. We’ll start the business revolution for you, so you can just sit back and enjoy those sweet, sweet cat pics.
