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.
Working with Kate is rewarding. She quickly absorbs the theme of what we are creating and always produces impressive results. Oftentimes, choosing between her options is our biggest challenge.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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!
Having Kate there to guide us through the beginning and end of our project not only made our lives easier but provided us with exactly what we were looking for on of the biggest days of our lives – we cannot thank her enough for that!
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!
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.
