Your Website Design vs. Your CompetitionMonday, September 14th, 2009
You’re hiring quite the team when you choose Hoppmann Creative for your web design and print collateral needs. With their cheeky saying, “Two Hoppmanns are better than one,” this husband and wife duo are two of the most creative minds out there, designing one-of-a-kind logos, web designs, and print collateral pieces.
In this exclusive interview with Becky and Carl Hoppmann, designers, developers, and owners of Hoppmann Creative, Becky and Carl share their secrets on building relationships with clients, the elements that make a great design, and why their job is the best in the world.
Sūmèr: What are the benefits of a husband and wife team?
Hoppmann Creative: I think that it gives our clients peace-of-mind 24 hours a day. Our minds don’t operate only from 9 – 5. We will discuss new ideas over coffee, during a walk or brushing our teeth. We’re not afraid to argue over what’s best either. Sigh.
Sūmèr: Who are your favorite types of clients?
Hoppmann Creative: Our favorite type of client is anyone with an open mind and is passionate about making their project the best it can be, not one industry or another. The kind of work we like the best is a collaboration with our client to come up with a solution together, not just painting by numbers.”A food-for-design barter with a South Carolina BBQ shack.”
Sūmèr: How does color play a role in your designs? How do you decide what colors you want to use for each design?
Hoppmann Creative: To be honest . . . despite our training and years of experience: For me, it’s often a gut instinct. I really know what I like, and it almost always translates into something the client loves! With that, we also do a lot of research, look at our clients’ competitors and create something far better.
Sūmèr: What is your unique selling point?
Hoppmann Creative: We do the work. A project doesn’t get filtered down through account handlers, executives, junior art directors and college interns. When you speak with us, we are the ones who follow your project from start to finish.
Sūmèr: Anything else you’d like to mention about Hoppmann Creative?
Hoppmann Creative: Confucius says, “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” We really do love our jobs, and it’s impossible for that to not come through in our work.
