Below is our recent interview with Tamara Hellgren, from Concorde Print & Design:
Q: Tamara, can you tell us something more about your company?
A: Concorde Print & Design is an independent, woman-owned creative print and graphic design studio in downtown Chicago. Our business is based on responding to the needs of our corporate clients’ tight production schedules and unique requests.
Over the years we’ve earned a reputation for high-quality work with fast turnaround, and we’re always ready to jump into any new or ongoing projects. Because we produce so many different types of marketing collateral, branching out into digital marketing is a natural extension of our services.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: In 2021 Concorde acquired NAVEO, a Wisconsin-based marketing agency with over 2 decades of experience in web design and digital marketing. We’d been searching for the right business for a long time, and the reason we went with NAVEO is because they have a similar approach to client relationships.
We get to know each client individually and tailor our services to achieve specific marketing objectives. We don’t have a fixed marketing program or “tiers” of services; our clients tell us the results they need and we create a strategy that delivers.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: The ultimate goal of our expansion is to make marketing easier and more cost-effective for our clients. Concorde now offers everything a business needs to grow: from branding, logo design, and business cards to search engine marketing, video production, and trade show exhibits.
We see ourselves as a one-stop shop for traditional and digital marketing services at a fraction of the cost. Our clients benefit from outsourcing more of their marketing needs from a single trusted vendor.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Our plans are to continue growing our company by promoting digital services and adding more projects to our portfolio. At Concorde we recognize the need for secure, online employee interactive training program. Thus, we are currently working on a custom build workplace training that will entitle employees to exchange materials, communicate and educate all in one virtual training environment that will completely change the way companies conduct compliance training. Our goal is to streamline the entire process while providing seamless UX across all devices in a simple yet innovative & highly interactive way. Something exciting is being developed and we can’t wait to share more details with you once the program launches.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Some of our most loyal and long-term clients found us after being told their idea wasn’t possible, or couldn’t be finished by their deadline. Our philosophy is to say YES and find a way to make it happen. We have confidence in our team’s creativity and hard work, and they haven’t failed us yet!
