We are a dynamic, creative firm specializing in print, web, and multimedia design. By dynamic, we mean that we can fit our offerings to your needs. Some clients need a full range of services such as the design and execution of a complete campaign. Other clients need to support their internal teams by outsourcing specific skills, products or services. Still others need only the creation of a single communication product such as a website or brochure. Whatever your visual communication needs, Bracketmedia West is positioned to deliver.
We have a unique organizational model based on distributed development, sometimes called e-collaboration. Starting with our core group, development teams are organized and disbanded based on project needs with each team member’s physical location geographically dispersed. A large percentage of communication and project management takes place via a simple, Internet-based collaboration application called Basecamp. Our clients participate too, reading and posting messages, uploading files, reviewing comps, and managing milestones.
