Don’t spend time fiddling with paragraph formatting or save the date layouts. Spend your time doing what you do best and leave your document and event material designs to me.
It can be a real challenge to communicate with your audience in a way that engages them while being polished, professional and cohesive to your brand. You want your document or event materials to stand out from the crowd, have a strong message and present the content in a way that is relatable and clear.
I know, because I help businesses and organizations reach their audiences through smart, professional document and material design.
My name is Kate Burgener and I love to work with my clients to create documents and event materials that deliver a strong message while standing out from the crowd (no boring templates here!) and still fitting their overall image. From community plans to fundraising event materials to brand awareness campaigns to development proposals, I relish tackling big, complex projects with a balance of visuals and detailed information.
I’ve spent 10 years as a designer creating projects that communicate powerful ideas with a careful eye for brand cohesion. My designs have been viewed by gubernatorial candidates, real estate developers and investors, big donors, and more.
I work in close collaboration with my clients to develop strong materials that present their content cleanly, professionally and in a memorable and engaging way.
Overall,we were very happy with the design details of our invitations, programs, and signage. We never imagined the design you printed and I love that you took our conversations and made it into something we both loved!
I really liked that some times we had ideas that you thought would not work the way we wanted it to, so you would mock it up for us so we could see. I learned to trust your opinions!
For us it was difficult to translate our thoughts into a marketing message and Kate was invaluable in this process. She listened carefully to what we wanted to project and quickly turned it into reality.
When following up with clients, they often mention receiving our mailers and other marketing materials. We feel it projects the type of image that is consistent with our brand, which was created by Kate.
I wanted to freshen up how my association presented my meeting, to show how progressive and modern it was (as well as how forward-looking my association was). Working with Kate, she created dynamic annual meeting branding, with a program booklet that multiple people came up and complimented me on during the meeting. Kate’s creativity and vision helped place my Board and staff in the best possible light, and had attendees of our meeting walk away with something that conveyed a sense of ‘the best is yet to come!’
We loved Kate’s enthusiasm – its always fun to work with someone who enjoys what they do, which makes you excited for the process too.
Working with you was AMAZING! You helped me cobble together an incoherent pile of ideas into a cohesive, gorgeous brand identity that works across all my platforms. The hardest part was deciding on a design, since they were all so gorgeous. No lie. That was the toughest thing.
Kate is by far the most detail orientated person I have ever worked with. Her creativity is second to none. In my experience, finding both of these qualities in the same person is rare.
We were pleased with Kate’s flexibility in our timeline and additional requests throughout the project, as well as her collaboration with our printer. Overall, we were very satisfied with Kate’s professionalism and open communication, and look forward to working with her again.
People love my branding and my business cards, and they like to contact me because they associate getting in touch with the brand we created.
