In 2009, we started our journey as a tiny web design shop here in Baton Rouge. We called ourselves YOLO Design (having no idea what kind of explosive future the term “YOLO” had in store). Our focus revolved around building beautiful, strategy-driven websites, and our business grew quickly through word-of-mouth referral business.
We’ve come a long way since then – learning, growing, and rising to challenges every step of the way. To celebrate our fifth birthday, we’ve given ourselves a new identity that better represents the new and improved “us.” Our client relationships are stronger, our capabilities are wider, and our work has never been better – we want our brand to reflect that – for us and for our clients. For 2015, YOLO Design will become Hatchit – an agency led by beautiful design, memorable customer experiences, and robust strategy.
Here are just a few ways that we will be working harder for you, our clients:
Services Built For Our Customers
In the past, 85% of our work focused on web and digital design. Over the years we noticed that many clients who come to us seeking a new website actually need more than that – many organizations benefit from refreshing or reorganizing their entire brand. Now, Hatchit offers a more comprehensive range of services including brand management, web and digital design, and application development. This structure allows us to develop long-term relationships with clients in which we act as the creative department for all of their needs.
Beefed Up Process, Strategy, and Personnel
With experience comes insight, knowledge and skill. We’ve completely rebuilt our processes to drive every project to a successful completion, and we hired personnel who make it their job to keep the project running on time and on point. This means that you can expect a smooth, collaborative project that yields a remarkable end-product.
We’ve grown up, but we haven’t lost sight of who we are. We come to work every day because we sincerely love creating brand experiences that make our clients stand out and get their customers to take notice. The Hatchit website is built to reflect our ambition – we love creating visually stunning work that is exciting, engaging, and most importantly – fun! Large images and videos give the website personality, a clients section lets us brag on our awesome customers, and our new blog platform gives us a voice. Expect to hear from all of the Hatchiteers as we move through 2015 and share our world with you.
Staying true to our roots is critically important to us. We strive to make the workplace fun and enjoyable – a place where people work together to build great things – a place that inspires creativity and innovation. Our business is about excellence to our clients, and our employees. Going forward we want to build deeper relationships with the community by sharing our world. Events like Thirsty Thursdays, Potlucks, Tailgates, and more will become an expanded focus for our agency.
While our new website and brand has finally launched, this is only the beginning. We have many more stories to tell, knowledge to share, and updates in the works. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram in the meantime to keep up with us. We have a ton of great ideas, and many cool new projects scheduled to roll out this year!
And please, let us know what you think about the new brand. We’d love to hear what you think.
