Not Just Fluff
You’ll find a page titled “Our Values” on almost any corporate website. Most visitors tend to skip over those pages because they perceive them to be full of boilerplate content. However, we encourage you to take a minute to read through our values and get to know what makes us tick.
We do our best work when we use the power of design to contribute to something meaningful—a cause or company we believe in—that makes a positive difference in people’s lives. Therefore, we align with clients carefully. Once we feel a connection, we unleash our passion and talents to help the client achieve their goals. We also use our financial resources to contribute to other beneficial organizations, leveraging the result of our work to help others.
Good design — great design — can change a person’s life. When communication is crafted with a thoughtful intention that evokes emotion, it changes how a message is perceived because it touches the person receiving it. If done right, design makes people feel, and feelings move them to make decisions, form opinions or take action. Design is the secret weapon of business.
You can’t always add it up or make sense of it on a spreadsheet, but design can affect a person more powerfully than logic or reason because it connects with their heart, their emotions and what they believe in. And, what a person believes in, directs how they live their life. Design influences what they buy, where they go, and the decisions they make. Without excellent design, life can appear to be dull, but with excellent design, life seems full of energy.
When we choose to partner with a client, it is because we believe in them and what they do. We ask for the same in return. We can say without question that our very best work occurs when clients respect our expertise and trust what we do to achieve their goals. The same is true regarding mutual trust for each other at Klündt | Hosmer. Living this trust at work is vital for our mutual success as designers, programmers and project managers. It is a trust that must be earned.
We seek to build strong and long-lasting relationships with people we care about. This goes both for clients and colleagues. With our clients, we maintain long-term partnerships—often spanning decades—that frequently grow into personal friendships. Colleagues find a place of balance where their personal lives are supported just as much as their professional growth and contributions.
We focus on the experience our clients have when working with us. We’re committed to proactive, responsive, attentive and respectful customer service. We follow creative and technical processes that clients actually enjoy. We make clients feel special and well-cared-for in a professional, friendly manner.
