Scroll-Stopping Branding for Your Next Event

How design can help you through a name change
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.
Using corporate branding to create event branding
Make your event branding more effective by incorporating these elements of your corporate or organizational branding to build recognition!
How to build a prospectus that will attract great sponsors
Attracting sponsors for your conference is vital, so create a great prospectus that makes it easy for them to say yes!
Balancing spending for non-profits
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.
Design helps you attract more donors
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.
Provide value to your clients with beautiful reports
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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 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.
