About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Our work stands out because it is not generic nor boring but instead finds its power and strength from within our clients' objectives, goals and expectations. We deliver strategic designs that are based on powerful concepts and not just flashy fonts and trendy colors. Our designs directly result in increased business and higher profits for our clients.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

OMc has delivered successful graphic projects and campaigns for hundreds of clients, and we enjoy every challenge and possibility we find within a new project as we refuse to re-apply template designs and boring solutions that do not help our clients to differentiate themselves with u7nique marketing designs to gain a larger market share.

    To begin, Omc was fast to reach me. I was quickly contacted and began the hard process of trusting company identity to a stranger. Upon hearing and listening to Christoph I felt not only relaxed but excited to begin my branding project. It's important to remember that just getting started is the most important thing, and with OMC we certainly did that and more.

    As the director of Mission Promise Neighborhood’s community engagement, I know how critical it is to our programs of family educational and economic development that we have dynamic, well-conceived, culturally appropriate and compelling graphics to communicate with our constituents. In my search for an agency capable of that level of graphics, I found OMc design on the Internet and called to get a quote. My first impression was that Christoph Oppermann, the founder and creative director took time to speak with me and he listened, carefully, to what I had to say. Finally when we received a grant for the design work, I contacted Christoph again and began to collaborate on our branding project for the Mission Promise Neighborhood. Here is what I learned about OMc and Christoph during the time we worked together: • Christoph took the time to research our audience and hear what we wanted. He gave us a variety of options to choose from once he understood us, our wishes, needs and budget • Christoph and team went above and beyond in the time they spend in meetings with us. The result was that they came back to us with a professional, high quality and beautiful design that we now proudly wear and use in all our materials, collateral and swag • Christoph is deeply responsive and committed to his clients. He gives the utmost respect and caring to produce a result capable of representing our programs • Our need was to reach the Latino community. Christoph met that need by considering culture, language and the feel that our logo must have to represent us to our multiple audiences - from families receiving services to donors and stakeholders. We couldn’t be happier with the end result as well as the collaborative and collegial process Christoph used. I recommend OMc to companies big and small. Christoph provides the same level of high quality to all. I would work with Christoph at every opportunity we have to work with a design company. Every Family Succeeds. Every Student Achieves.

    We're still working with OMc Design Group and narrowing down the final version, but it's been a pleasure working with Christoph and his team. If we ask for changes, we get them. If my team gets wants a quick turn around, we get it. I'm happy that we found OMc here. I look forward to working with them on finalizing our logo change and developing all sorts of marketing collateral for it. I highly recommend OMc's services. Thanks, Thumbtack!

    OMc designed and created marketing materials for DLS Solutions, Inc. in 2014. The focus was on Success Stories. We use these printed copies to share with new clients during sales activities. Christoph is very sharp; he listens well and is able to create the designs we were looking for. We are using OMc again, they are easy to work with, talented, and delivered the product we needed on-time.

    As a pastor and clergyman, it is vitally important that my website reflects a quality and professional ministry. OMc designed an outstanding website that embodies excellence and creativity,one that accurately communicates our mission and passion for prayer. The staff was excellent in working with me to ensure that I was completely satisfied with their work. Most of all, I appreciated Christoph's consideration by working with our budget to make this undertaking a success. If any room for improvement, I can't think of anything at this moment! I highly recommend pastors and clergy persons to give Christoph and OMc a call for your website and marketing needs. Oneal Pastor/CEO United Prayer Assembly, Inc. www.upassembly.org

    Christoph and his team designed our firm logo, collateral materials, and are currently working on our website. Christoph is in a league of his own design wise. He is creative, not afraid to take chances, and worth every penny. He sees things others do not and it shows in the quality of his work. His client management skills are top notch -- always on time with deadlines (or ahead of time) and never over promised.

    We hired Christoph and the OMC Design Group to help with our branding and website design. This process was new to us and Christoph was patient, had a creative vision and worked closely with us to achieve a great outcome. We are an early stage company and Christoph managed to complete everything we needed on a tight budget and within our timeline. We highly recommend OMC Design Group and can guarantee you will receive first class service. A big thanks to the OMC team, we love our website and have received numerous compliments!

    Outstanding people who deliver an outstanding (and better than expected) work product. They consistently ride that fine line in the creative process between giving you (the customer) what you think you want and what you actually need. In other words, they listen AND they create. It's a truly winning combination.
  • Darryl C. Sep 11, 2012
    I hired Christoph's firm to consult on our new internet startup to assist with look and feel, branding, design and production etc. From the very start and to this day Christoph has been incredible to work with. He listens then he produces many rough drafts to present in a variety of formats on whatever need we have. He often takes us in new directions that are better than where we started. Once designs are agreed to, Christoph assists with getting the work done for the highest quality at the most reasonable pricing. I give Christoph my highest recommendation and will gladly speak to anyone as a reference for his caliber of work and attitude. I can be reached for reference at 415-350-2840.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We first listen carefully to what our customers are looking for and what they expect, before we begin to devise a plan to solve their branding or graphic or website needs. We can assist with the careful and strategic planing of complex marketing systems or a plain invitation or poster. After initial exploration of the design direction, we refine our approach based on our clients' feedback and design a final version ready for output. We build in several layers of proofing and refining for every element to ensure a perfect end result. Our clients remain closely involved along all steps and we provide them with constant status reports and fluid communication.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I hold six degrees, three from University Munich in Art History, Philosophy and Photography and three from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena and Europe for Advertising, Graphic Design and Packaging. Additionally I have extensive computer, typography and photography skills that are brought to bear at every project.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We can charge by the hour starting at $88 or per project and we also work with fixed monthly marketing design budgets. We offer very competitive pricing on every project and intend to win over our clients not for just one quick pay-off but for long-lasting, loyal relationships where our dedicated stewardship helps to shape and optimize their brand.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started as an artist when I was a late teenager and quickly fell in love with Graphic Design and Visual Communications as forms of visual language that are both complex and rewarding as they are informative and story-telling.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We create a lot of branding and identity projects as well as providing complete style guides, website designs and presentation materials. A lot of our clients appreciate the fact that we offer complete design services that are not limited by the lack of any of the most commonly used design disciplines hence offering a one-stop-shop approach to graphic design that includes all media and even encompasses highly competitive production and printing services.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
One of my favorite projects of all times was last year's Clean Energy Ministerial here in San Francisco, when Energy, Environment and Climate Change Ministers from 20 major countries from around the world gathered here and retrieved the entire Ministerials' program from a book that OMc designed. The theme of this voluminous program was a visual design array of shots ranging from our planet photographed from out of space to a macro close-up of a lush leaf, all but revealing the beauty and preciousness of this place we call Earth.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for a designer that is passionate enough to create innovative solutions for you without being opinionated while remaining responsive to your input. Sometimes less is more and projects can be completed without red tape and drawn-out development processes. Do not under-estimate the positive effect of smart design and the negative consequences of mediocre design.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What are your near, mid and long-term goals for your business? What is important to you in a designer: Reliability, creativity, honesty, professionalism...? How long do you have to complete the project? Do you have all elements considered that are needed to promote your business? Is consistency and issue?
