Working with a DesignerPosts to help you work seamlessly with your designer or pick up some DIY tricks yourself!
Make sure your event promotion is noticed by using a complete branding system and mixing up elements to avoid repetitive graphics that viewers dismiss.
When you’re established in your industry or community, changing your name can be really intimidating. Here’s how you can use your existing branding and design to ease the transition.
Make your event branding more effective by incorporating these elements of your corporate or organizational branding to build recognition!
Attracting sponsors for your conference is vital, so create a great prospectus that makes it easy for them to say yes!
A non-profit who is trying to bootstrap their materials may be missing out on the benefits of a more professional approach. But an organization who pours money into their materials can come off as spending too much on overhead and not enough on the programs people want to see supported.
While the most important factors of your organization are the mission, programs, and the change you bring to the world, well-designed materials are a tool to help you communicate that better.
If you provide reports or documents to your clients as part of your work product, document design can improve this deliverable and allow you to charge a premium price for your work.
Kate is more than a graphic designer. She is a true marketing partner. She provides big-picture analysis, ideas and strategies to help strengthen any design piece. At the same time, she’s detail-oriented enough to create beautiful work and ensure every “i” is dotted and “t” is crossed. I’d recommend Kate to anyone looking for a design consultant.
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.
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!’
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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’re now way more confident that we’re providing a professional and consistent experience for our students.
