Our Family

MayeCreate Core Values

Trust. Integrity. Reliability.

Client relationships are based on trust. We build trust by exceeding client expectations. We work as a partner providing the marketing tools they need to reach their goals to grow as a company. Clients understand that their success is our success.

In providing a service of quality for which clients never hesitate to pay the invoice. They know we’ve provided an excellent product and are receiving it a fair price.

Flexibility. Collaboration. Communication.

Keeping projects on task and on schedule is essential. We actively seek clients who are as motivated as we are to complete their projects in a timely manner. We stay true to our development process and yet flexible to the flow of each client.

The customer is not always right but their opinion is crucial to the successful outcome of a project. They have a right to know our opinions about their ideas and then with that knowledge can make an informed decision about their work.

Respect will be awarded to those with a backbone. We hold firm in our values and seek knowledge from every experience. We are respectful to others and expect the same in return.

Skill. Performance. Pride.

Quality design work is a privilege that should be sought after by all businesses both big and small. Designs that do not accurately reflect the personality of a business are worse than no designs at all.

A design should be a well thought out purposeful piece of art. Viewers should be drawn to key elements and called to action. Good designs make people want to read more, they make their eyes happy. “Design without purpose is art, design with purpose is advertising.” Any artist can make a design look good, we put it to work.
