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.
You made things feel easy. You were able to work with my wants/needs even though I wasn’t able to provide a ton of direction. You also show great skills and design diversity in your work being able to show multiple different style options.
Kate’s assistance with creating professionally designed materials has enabled us to expand our reach and ability to “touch” clients in more ways that traditional means, such as by phone and email. In our opinion, the value of this exposure would be greatly diminished if not for the well thought out look and feel of our documents.
You are very creative and provide multiple options which I find very helpful. I really appreciate your attention to detail and trust that you know what you’re doing.
Kate is very responsive, creative and focused on meeting our deadlines. I do not have the capability to design my documents in-house, so I did not hesitate to outsource this work.
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!
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!’
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.
When I partner with Kate on a project, I know that my expectations will be exceeded. She delivers creative and functional designs– on time and on budget. Her attention to detail and follow through are exceptional.
I think you do an excellent job, and I am continuously impressed with your creativity. Being able to rely on you for those ideas is priceless to me, really, and I’ve had a lot of experience with designers over the years!
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.
