Tethos designs messages that create action

Hello! We’re Tethos Creative (pronounced teh’-thos), and we design strategic communications that help connect people and ideas to their audience. What does that mean? It means that you may find us writing, designing, and implementing a website for a well-known comedian who is shifting into higher causes. Or you may find us writing and producing a short video to help cure a terrible disease. We may also be strategizing and branding every element of a fundraising event for a global icon. 

We seek out win + win + win arrangements: those which will serve your needs, which help the needs of people or the planet, and that make us feel good about what we are doing. 

Welcome to the Tethosphere.

What We Do
Our Services

Brand Strategy & Development

Each element of your business should communicate what you do and how you do it. This is accomplished with a clear branding strategy, websites, effective logos and stationary, standards development, branding portals, and branded products of nearly
every shape and size.

Creative Direction

Sometimes you just need someone from the outside to step in and help on that special project. Our Creative Directors can guide you and your team with ideas, concepts, clarification, and production knowledge, either from your offices or ours. Let our decades of experience and unique viewpoints supplement yours.

Content Creation

Design isn’t just about making something look good. It’s about determining what message is being communicated, what the needs of that communication are, developing the right content, and visually executing it. From effective product and company naming, copywriting, product development, social media content, and more, we know your message is key.

 

 

Digital Presence

Whether you want to communicate in digital, print or 3D, we understand that design has to be implemented well in order to be effective. Digital implementation includes: website strategies, copywriting and development, SEO/PPC management, coding of large web projects, social media campaigns, and more.

Print Design

We absolutely love the smell of ink on paper. With 30+ years of print production experience on our team (including over 700 calendars), we not only get it printed, but we know how to assure successful and cost-effective printed products. From business cards to packaging, signage to promotional items, brochures to calendars, we have seen and designed it all. 

 

3D & Motion

The design world is flat no longer! From promoting a legendary eSports company’s new releases, to modeling truck parts for product packaging, to creating motion graphics for an international logistics company, we incorporate time and depth into our projects. In doing so we create stunning 3D graphics as well as short video productions.

How we accomplish your goals

InDesign? Photoshop? The latest video editing rig or 3D tools?

Yeah, we use these day-to-day tools of the trade. More importantly, though, is that we use our experience in Message Design. We must first and always understand your goals. We must know who you want to communicate with. We must clearly know what you want your audience to do. Then we will help you choose and use the right medium through which to communicate.

These are the principles that brought us to the forefront of the Message Design principle (as covered in our first modern textbook on the subject), and this is our focus for you, no matter what the design tool of the moment happens to be. Our communication style is clean, simple, honest, and ethical. We do our best to un-complicate just about everything, and as such, we’re selective about the types of clients and projects we bring into the Tethosphere.

If you have a message that you want designed and delivered to your audience with impact, please give us a call at +1.714.575.0000, and let’s see if we’re a fit.
