The All-Important Follow Through

In tennis, in baseball, in golf, there’s a lot of emphasis on the “follow through,” that smooth, complete stroke that makes all the difference. As a graphic designer, I apply that same principle, staying focused on quality until the finished piece is in the hands of the client.
I was fortunate at the dawn of my career to have a boss that allowed me to participate in every step of the design process, from conception to execution, and instilled in me the importance of carefully monitoring a project as it moves through the various steps in production, and on to the all-important press check with the printer. Ensuring quality at every step results in a superior looking project every single time. No exceptions.
That comprehensive approach to the creative process has served Cronin Creative’s clients well over the years, giving the final delivered piece that extra touch that separates just okay from really great.

How Outsourcing Can Help Your Business

Working in your business, getting things done and delivered day to day can easily eat up your entire schedule. It can be challenging to find the time to work on the business, and that can lead to real problems as your company tries to grow and evolve.This kind of over-saturated bandwidth can be paralyzing. Whether it’s marketing related, financial, or just laying out a plan that gets you to where you need to be, the answer can often be found through outsourcing. Having that expert, objective, third party at your disposal to advise, strategize or execute on your behalf can be a lifesaver, and it won’t necessarily cost you an arm and a leg.In her business development role at NOW CFO, Melissa Thorniley helps companies large and small get a grip on their finances and their future. Her company provides accounting help, budgeting advice, and forecasting that keeps companies on track. She’s quick to point out that the right outsourcing relationship can save you money – all the benefits of a full-time employee without having to pay benefits.

We had one conversation, and I knew Cronin Creative had it covered. I’m spoiled.” – Marty Stuart
