Thinking Cap is a full service advertising and graphic design agency offering creative and account services for non-profit and for-profit accounts. We can serve as your offsite marketing department or become a great creative resource for marketing managers. 

Our creative department provides graphic design and copywriting for your projects. Our designers work on logo development, brochures, print and web advertising design. Our designers are also talented illustrators and experienced in photo retouching and photo composition. Copywriting is available for brochures, print radio and TV advertising, websites, press releases, and newsletters.

Account services include project management, business branding, print and broadcast media planning, media buying and print buying.

Thinking Cap’s office space is a work environment that inspires our creativity and is open and inviting to our clients, friends, partners, spouses and pets. And most importantly, a space that allows us to love what we do and makes us happy to be there no matter the time or day.

We are serious about the work we create for our clients and we do our best to make our city and the world a better place by offering pro-bono work for nonprofit organizations through our graphic design internship program.

Our offices are located on the 2nd floor of the Hutton, a historic 100+ year old building that is home to several creative companies. When ever you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and visit.

Thinking Cap started in 1999 after company president, Marvo Reguindin, moved his home-based graphic design company downtown to service his growing account base. Prior to starting his home based business, Marvo spent 10 years working for advertising agencies in California, Idaho, Montana and Washington. In 2006 the company incorporated, added employees and began re-branding itself as an advertising and graphic design agency.

For corporations and government agencies with supplier diversity programs and initiatives, or other creative sources looking to partner with a minority business, Thinking Cap is the only Northwest advertising and graphic design company certified as a minority business enterprise through the Washington State Office of Minority and Women Businesses Enterprises, and the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

We are available to partner with other certified and non-certified companies to pitch corporate or government contracts. Our NAICS Codes are:
541810 Advertising Agencies
541830 Media Buying Agencies
541430 Graphic Design

In addition to our certifications, we are also members of Inland Northwest Business Alliance, Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce, and West Plains Chamber of Commerce.

View Our Portfolio
Our founder cut his teeth working for advertising agencies in Los Angeles. From a single ad to a full multi-media advertising campaign–we love creating a headline and message that is fun, unique and talks to your market.
We work with fantastic award-winning copywriters–and we’re not half bad writers ourselves. We produce advertising and corporate communications copy for print ads, TV and radio commercials, brochures, and press releases.
Our first client was a magazine, so long documents such as books, catalogs, directories, newsletters and magazines are second nature to us. We have create an annual 65+ page business directory for Inland Northwest Business Alliance, course catalogs and hardbound books.

We design with a marketing point of view, a quality we inherited from our advertising background. Graphic design projects include logos, stationery packages, brochures, posters, banners, arena and airport dioramas, building and corporate signage–if we haven’t listed the design project you’re looking for–ask us–we’ve probably worked on one in the past.

Our talented designer is also a fantastic illustrator who draws by hand with pen and ink then adding color and finishing using techniques with digital software. Photo collage compositions are also a snap!
Website design has become second nature to our print design. Working with a great programmer and web development vendor helps achieve everyone’s website goals.
We handle all aspects of your project to deliver it on time and on budget. We create timelines and due dates; purchase printing and coordinate your project with them; manage web programmers and other creative contractors such as photographers, illustrators and video production companies.
We take the mystery out of where your advertising should be placed. If you don’t have an advertising media budget, we can develop one for you. We will reserve your ad space and make sure your art files are sent to the media publication on time.

The advantage of using Thinking Cap to buy your media is that we will check that each ad runs on the right date and the print quality is acceptable. If the print quality or run date is not correct we advocate for a media “make good” for you. Instead of multiple invoices from multiple media publications, you’ll receive one invoice from us with a listing of your monthly ad insertions, ad size and cost.

Over the years Thinking Cap began provide limited Association Management services. Today, Thinking Cap manages and provides marketing and communication services to Inland Northwest Business Alliance and Washington State Psychological Association.
