the aim is to create high-quality design and building successful relationships with my clients. I choose to work with only a handful of printers and I strongly advocate open communication.

“I feel that a brand refers to the unique identity of a business, product or service. branding is the representation of your organisation as a “personality” and vital to portray it’s image to the public in a clear and concise way. 

I have had the opportunity to work in a laid-back studio environment and I have done the “corporate” thing (been there, done that), thus, I have the experience to understand how important it is to brand or market your company through visual communication and formulating the right perception in the eyes of your target market.”

so WHY is graphic design important?

convey a message with a purpose

graphic design can be described as the sphere of human activity that lies on the crossroads of several directions, first of all, visual arts, communication and psychology. Basically, graphic designers do the job of communication to others by means of graphic (visual) elements such as images of different style and complexity, types and fonts, pictograms, shapes and sizes, colors and shades, lines and curves etc.

Graphics are required in our every day life. The strong meaning of graphics stimulates a person to reach for the product or feel drawn to it or to immediately decide its an inferior product and has no use for it. It can also Convey a message that you are established and should be taken seriously. A strong corporate identity can also convey that your company is far bigger than it actually is.  You can Instil a sense of trust in your target audience – If a company looks professional, your potential customers are more likely to trust that you can deliver.

WHY old school business cards are still important

the most effective direct marketing tool

everything we do in business today is digital -- sending mail, signing contracts, attending meetings, even networking. The business card is one thing that digital will not fully replace anytime soon.... Here's why:

Sending contact information via text or email on the spot is convenient but it is also extremely impersonal. Engaging in eye contact and actual conversation is how real relationships begin. You can encounter a potential lead or contact at any time -- tradeshows, industry conferences, happy hour, airport lounges -- and arming yourself with business cards at all times will ensure that you never miss an opportunity to make a valuable business connection.

When you meet someone that could potentially be a great prospect or connection, don’t you want him or her to walk away with a great first impression? A memorable business card does a lot more than just pass on an email address or phone number. If you met two individuals and one was scrambling to find a pen and something to write on and the other person simply pulled out a business card, who would you want to do business with? Showing that you are prepared at all times is a great indicator that you are professional.

logo design - WHY Your logo influences perceptions

the next step...your unique identity

if your logo appears to be low quality, prospective clients might associate that with your products and feel less confident about your ability to deliver professional products or services. Through font, color and mark design, your company logo conveys your company’s personality—much like the clothes you choose to put on in the morning represent who you are.

Logo's should be memorable, simple and timeless, leaving room for what the logo actually represents – you. They are graphical displays of a company's unique identity, and through colors and fonts and images they provide essential information about a company that allows customers to identify with the company's core brand.

It's important to make sure your logo can be shared and reproduced on a wide variety of advertising materials including websites, letterhead, and yes, promotional products. Your logo is your brand, and having a brand symbol that translates well across multiple mediums is an important part of sharing what your company has to say!
