Why we design
We believe in business
We believe the ultimate purpose of business is not to generate wealth, but to enrich the health of the community. Money comes and goes, but our communities thrives on healthy, trustworthy businesses offering quality services and products. Bear Up Design was created with this in mind. We have a deep desire to “bear up” and support community businesses that share this passion.
We partner with business owners and leaders to help them find their organization’s core identity. Then we design logos and brands that are effective and impactful, properly honed, and perfectly positioned in the marketplace for success and profitability.
Our passionate aim is that our pursuit of excellence in branding, will equip each business to pursue excellence in their products and services, all so our communities can thrive.
We believe that a company’s brand is more than a logo. But a company’s logo is their face, and an integral part of their success. Our aim is to create recognition and visibility through memorable, relevant, and creative logo design.
A brand is the essence of a company and its product. Vastly more than a logo on a business card, a brand is a promise. We help companies identify their “why” and design campaigns to help them shout it to the masses.
Effective marketing can only be accomplished with a deep understanding of the value you bring and the state of the market you are in. We will help you set a strategy that will create growth, and build tools to measure your inevitable success.
