Community Highlights: Meet Darren Cumberbatch of AMD Branding

Today we’d like to introduce you to Darren Cumberbatch.

Darren, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Well, our company is called AMD Branding. AMD Branding actually stands for Awesome Ministry Design & Branding. We ended up using the acronym AMD Branding because everyone kept thinking we were a church.

Even though we would cook and feed the homeless every Saturday, we were not a church. But our name comes from the power of God that we would see every day. Every time God would do something good in our lives, we would say God is awesome. If you ordered a product and it came out perfect, you say awesome. That’s the first part of our name.

The second part comes from the definition of the word ministry. Most people associate ministry with the church but in fact, everything that we do in life is a ministry. If you love to cook – that’s your ministry. If you love to make clothes – that’s your ministry.

We love to design, so that’s our ministry. So when we complete a logo or website, ironically, all clients say awesome. But not because that’s our name but that’s how they feel. So we just put those two together and Awesome Ministry Designs was born. And we think that’s what sets us apart from other branding companies because, even though we have to pay bills, we do it first to make God proud of the talent he has given us.

Our branding work speaks heart & vision for the success of others to succeed in their dreams.

Designing for fortune 500 companies and future fortune 500 companies is a blessing that no one can predict, imagine, or accomplish. Trinity & I have created a business based on raising the bar, expectations, and the sole belief that ”CAN’T DON’T EXIST”.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It wasn’t easy. Not at all. Too many downs compared to the ups, but what got us through it was our faith in God. We don’t think he would have put us on this path to fail. We wake up every day with that in mind. It reminds us of where we came from. And allows us to give the client more attention than they would get from another company because we know how hard it is to start a company, maintain a company, and ultimately succeed as a company.

The biggest challenge is believing in your goal. We dive into our clients like it’s our own project. We treat people like they are family. But to be honest, our biggest challenge is trying to get our clients to believe in themselves.

We stand by our product and our work ethic is second to none. Our turnaround time is crazy, our quality of work is industry standard if not better. But once again, we are humble.

Designing for BET, YMCA, Lifetime, and many other clients, we are proud of our work.

As you know, we’re big fans of AMD Branding. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
We are awesome! Period. Point Blank Period.

We strive to be the best you that is possible. But we are humbled by God’s grace. We are not better than anyone else but we are in a class by ourselves. We specialize in creativity. We specialize in building personal relationships with our clients.

It is a ministry what we do. Building companies from the ground up is one of the best challenges and triumphs that encounter every day. Our work ethic to bring a client’s vision to life is not enough for AMD Branding. We want to raise the bar and then shatter the glass ceiling. We are profoundly proud of the fact that we are able to hang with the big design and branding companies and we are able to exceed our client’s expectations.

So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
