DESIGN. ATTRACT. GROW.

Design

should be infectious and memorable. Simple, clever design is the most effective way to convey information to an audience to invoke an action. Graphic design legitimizes your offering as a professional organization and aids in the building of your brand for long-term profitability and success. I believe design’s greatest virtue is that it adds value in the form of credibility and trust.

Roses Deli Branding ProjectBranding is a vital part of running a successful business. Whether it is uniform, eye-catching packaging, a memorable logo, or an exquisite client brochure, the design should encompass every aspect of your business.

A strong brand is the collection of feelings, thoughts, emotions and experiences (negative or positive) one person has about your product, service or company. Valuations of the top companies in the world suggest that close to thirty to seventy percent of the company’s value (all assets included) account for brand equity. A strong focused brand makes it easier for the customer to buy and makes it easier for the sales force to sell. It is this premise that makes brand development an important central aspect of starting and growing a business.

Our brand development approach seeks to uncover what makes your brand unique, relevant and worth considering. It answers the questions:

  • Who are you?
  • Who needs to know?
  • How will they find out?
  • Why should they care?
  • What is the why behind the what and how?

 

Horizon West Inside PagesEquip your sales team, build your brand or communicate your products and services with brochures and marketing collateral that help you effectively reach and motivate your targets.

The keys to making a successful brochure campaign are design, content and general appeal. Simple but not boring; eye-catching but clutter-free. Informative; without telling the whole story, basically capturing your customers interest and calling them to action.

Inspiring, eye-catching design, smart layouts, appealing images and organization are key ingredients to good catalog design.

A catalog’s performance is tied to how well it sells. We will tailor your catalog design to appeal to your target customer. If your target is a young audience it will be drastically different than a catalog for older folks.

Design for Your Audience

 A rule of thumb in catalog design is the larger the product photo the greater the product’s sales. To this end we generally strive to maximize the size of the product’s image, especially in conjunction with each product’s profit value – the more total profit a product generates the larger the product photo should be. Then support the product with compelling copy.

A great photo is “worth a thousand words” but a poor photo can persuade a customer to not buy your product. Don’t risk it by scrimping on good photography. It would be better to show fewer products on fewer pages to save on printing than to cut your sales with poor photos.

Thinking about sending out an electronic newsletter or ad blast?

This is the perfect media for Special Offers, New Products, and BIG Brand Talk.  Get prospective clients to know your brand better, and keep your current customers coming back. An E-newsletter is the perfect way to keep them feeling a “part of something.”  Regular “blasts” will make your customers feel they are part of a conversation with your company.  Customer service and customer feedback should also be encouraged.
