Who Are We?

Ground Zero Design & Advertising was created by Creative Director Charles James, as a freelance design and art direction company. The name was created in 1996 to describe the central point of impact of creative ideas and design. Created years BEFORE the Twin Tower's terrible tragedy in New York City.

Since then, we've grown to specialize in many areas of design, copywriting, marketing and programming/web coding and serve as outsourcing for Marketing/Ad/Design Agencies as well as have direct clients of our own. We build brands that customers can connect with. We step into the world of our clients and their brands to uncover the unique connection between their business strategy and the needs of their audience.

How Do We Work?

• Get To Know You Phase: We'll have a conference call or personal meeting with you to find out a brief history of your company and to understand what you are looking for.

• Estimation Phase: We'll create an estimate based on your input and the things you need and present that for approval. An approved, signed estimate will be needed to move forward so we are all on the same page and there is no question on what will be delivered.

• Research Phase: We'll start looking at your competitors to find out what they are doing and how we can help you do it better! This includes putting together sample imagery, color pallets, design inspirations, typography samples, etc...

• Design Phase: Depending on the type of project you need, we'll start putting together some rough comps (logos, website designs, brochure layouts, etc...) for you to approve and make sure we are all on the same page. You'll get 3 to 6 logo options, 2 to 3 print design options, or up to 3 website design options to review depending on budget and time approved.

• Production Phase: Once you have approved the designs, we will take the project into print production / web coding / etc... You will see and approve the project at all these stages to make sure everything is just the way you like it.

We believe in working as a team with you to ensure you are 100% satisfied with out work and that it gets done in a timely, cost effective way!
