Hello! My name is Christoph Truemper, owner & designer at C.True Designs.
I started this company in Marion, Iowa in 2008 and have very much enjoyed the opportunity it has given me to meet local business owners, understand their strengths and challenges, and find new and creative ways to help them connect with the local market. I’m now based out of Cedar Rapids, my home town.
If you are like most business owners, you’ve got many irons in the fire and very little time to put towards marketing efforts. C.True Designs can help with ideas, strategies, and designs, and most importantly, get your projects done and out there in the world working for you.
Let’s get to work!
Quick Jobs or Large Projects: Whether you just need a quick logo for your small business or a full branding package complete with ad campaigns and marketing pieces, C.True Designs can make it happen. Every project receives personal attention.
Flexibility: You can get your graphics and marketing projects done without having to hire a full time, in-house designer. C.True Designs will have your files on-hand, ready to go to work, and only when needed. Working with C.True Designs is like having a designer in your back pocket, always at the ready.
Marketing Collateral & Printing: Business cards, brochures, postcards, mailers, menus, signs… anything that can help your business grow can be created here. Don’t have time to deal with trips to the printers, developing specs, and making sure your printed items came out the way they should have? C.True Designs can get your items printed properly and deliver them to your door. All of this for about the same cost as going to the printer yourself, leaving you free to run your business.
Advertisements: Whether you have your ideas all sketched out and ready to roll, or you need someone to help you come up with the whole message, layout and voice of your advertisement, C.True Designs can help you bring it to the finish line. All files are delivered camera-ready and built to the exact specs required for submission, so they look as sharp as possible when your audience sees them.
Screen Printing: T-shirts and other clothing and accessories imprinted with your logo or message are a great way to express your personality or promote your event or business. Creative designs built properly for the screen printing environment can be sent directly to your screen printer of choice, or C.True Designs offers screen printing for a one-stop-shop.
Technical Work/File Conversion: C.True Designs works with local and national businesses on a freelance basis to help screen printers and other organizations turn pixelated JPEGS into clean vector art that is separated, laid out with reg marks, and ready to be printed to film. Photo retouching and other services are also available, all done quickly, properly and at reasonable rates.
Building Relationships: I’m all about building long term relationships with people and businesses. As a part of the community, I want to be of service to those around me in a real and substantial way that benefits all involved. If I am doing a job for you, I want to get it right, communicate effectively, and create a system where I know what you need, when you need it and can tailor my process to yours. This alleviates headaches and saves time down the road, making the whole experience more enjoyable and productive for everyone. I not only want to help you complete your current project, I want to be your go-to graphics guy!
