About Hostetler Bakkie Design

Hostetler Bakkie Design is a Sacramento native, small business design firm that keeps on pace with or beyond the quality, integrity and skill set of large agencies while providing a more flexible and close relationship with our clients. With a workforce of two extremely versatile individuals, we are able to keep our overhead costs low and pass those savings onto our clients without any lack in quality.

The company’s two founders met while attending the graphic design program at California State University, Sacramento. After receiving their degrees, the two decided to team up and work together. With both of their skill sets and experience combined, Hostetler Bakkie Design was an instant success. Now they are one of the fast growing design firms in town with past clients including SMUD, Joie De Vivre, California ACEP, Grange Restaurant, The Citizen Hotel, BlackShape Aircraft, The Press Bistro, Selland’s Market, Angelo Investments.

OUR PROCESS

Each project is unique and presents its own distinct challenge. That’s why we begin with an overall review and planning phase to fully understand the scope of work needed. Research, competitive analysis, and exploration are all key steps in laying the foundation for any problem solving method and delivering your message. The process begins with a meeting to establish relationships, discuss the vision for the project, agree on the approval process, confirm the time line, and define priorities. It is essential for all team members and decision makers to be included.
We will take all research compiled during the discovery phase and begin to make it tangible. Turning ideas into rough sketches, wire frames, prototypes and mock-ups for review. These ideas will be narrowed down to the most effective ones for the task. After a clear path is set it will be time to see your project take shape.
This stage is all about refinement. Design comps become polished and interactive projects become click-able. We develop all of our websites and applications using best practice technologies and methods. Our thorough approach to proofing, testing and quality assurance upholds each project’s integrity.
Upon final approval, Hostetler Bakkie Design will provide you with print ready documents or handle any printing needs you may have, with the final product ready for you when needed. Websites and interactive applications are deployed live and post-launch quality assurance is done. If necessary, we begin the training phase, to instruct you in the care and administration of your new site and to answer any questions.
