Happy One Year, Pinch! We have made it through our first official year of business! From just a dream to a goal to a living breathing company! It's hard to believe that Pinch opened its doors 365 days ago. We are beyond thankful for the lessons learned, the skills gains and the clients we have met along the way. We wanted to take some time to highlight some lessons we have learned in 2016 and some of our favorite projects of the past year.
As we have stated countless time before, clients are the heart of Pinch Design Co. However, some partnerships just do not work. This was an important lesson learned in 2016. We try very hard to bring our clients’ visions to life while incorporating our professional design skills. Both parties have to be flexible in order to end up with a design they love. This year, we experienced a situation where a final logo wasn’t able to be reached and the relationship was dissolved. It was a devastating blow; however, it comes with the business. Being able to identify compatibility early in the process will be key in 2017.
For those who do not know, Pinch’s CEO, Chardee' Scott, is expecting her first child in May of this year. Naturally, juggling personal life and the business has become a little more challenging (hence, the small social media break). The need to plan and schedule has been at an all-time high. We have learned that although it’s important to handle personal affairs, you cannot neglect your business in any capacity. There must be a balance and you must find it in order to maintain a successful/ thriving company. You may not have seen us working but, trust me, we never stopped. This was a tough lesson but, moving into 2017 with renewed balancing skills, we are sure not to drop the ball.
Designing is what we do and this year we took on some projects that made for a truly remarkable year. From designing hair logos to deliciously dipped designs, Pinch touched many companies. In 2017, we want to further expand our design knowledge. The key will be to marry the right new design technique with the right client. <Take a look at some of what we did last year!> 2016’s logo designs are to your left. Enjoy!
2016 was amazing and again Pinch has been beyond blessed to have made it this far. We are excited to see what 2017 has for us. We want to offer our clients more and gain a deeper understanding of the ever-changing design world. Thank you all for your support! We couldn’t have made it without you! Happy 1 Year, Pinch!
