About Us

We all have a story.
THIS ONE IS OURS – THE SHORT ONE.

JonStoneDesign is a Minneapolis-based design studio that believes in creating integrated, cohesive brand experiences. We believe in telling your story – helping you connect to grow your business. Jon currently works at 3e The LifeTime Agency as a creative director.

The slightly longer story.
WHAT WE BELIEVE.

We believe that all of your brand’s touch points are important. That anyone can become your company’s evangelist. That one of the best ways to talk to your prospect is online. That telling your story is important, you just need to choreograph it. That strategy should drive concept and that true marketing is more than pretty pictures. That word of mouth and integrity are still important. That simple is almost always best and that egos are annoying. That work can be fun if you like what you do. That your customers are smart and want you to be too. That business has become transparent. And that marketing and advertising have evolved. Here’s to change.

 

We love to collaborate.  To solve real-world business problems.  Say Hello.

Our Approach
KEEPING IT SIMPLE. HOW WE SOLVE YOUR BRAND AND BUSINESS PROBLEMS.
Observe
Observe
First, we’ll work hard to discover who you really are, your business, and the space in which you operate. We’ll create requirements, evaluate competition, interview key stakeholders, look at inspiration with you, and craft a brief to make sure that all project objectives will be met. We’ll look at your brand and business objectives through an integrated, holistic lens.
Design
Design
In this stage, we’ll create a plan and start the design and concept work. We’ll take our findings from the discovery phase to help define your vision and craft your messaging and brand positioning. We’ll determine what tactics and mediums make sense. For interactive work, we’ll create the architecture, map, wireframes, and eventually design all online brand touch points.
Build

Here we’ll begin working to execute tactics determined from the planning phase. We’ll work with you to develop deeper level content that spans marketing and business needs as well as create traditional and social campaigns that cross devices and platforms. Specific to the web, we’ll develop the framework, place your site on the appropriate CMS, add any necessary effects, ensure SEO is what it should be, and test and retest your site in a development environment.
