each project is an opportunity to expand growth and develop continuity between a brand + a product. The visual voice speaks with color, images, layout style and font personality. 

Good brands express feelings and emotions to connect with customers to fill "their" needs with three primary functions: Navigation, Reassurance and Engagement.

ENGAGEMENT.jpg

Engagement

By consistently using a distinct logo with color, imagery and language customers identify with the brand.

A brand is an asset that needs to be protected, preserved and nurtured. Actively managing the asset requires a top down mandate and a bottom up understanding of why its important. The best companies provide their employees with tools that make it easy to be a brand champion. Building, protecting and enhancing the brand requires desire, and a disciplined approach to insure its integrity and relevance". —Designing Brand Identity

DEVELOPING A STRATEGY IS THE FOUNDATION THAT UNIFIES THE "BIG IDEA" TO GUIDE THE DESIGN PROCESS AND PRODUCTION OF PRINT, MULTIMEDIA AND WEB. 

 
 

Creating visual solutions to UNIFY the brand, SIMPLIFY the message + AMPLIFY the results.

Through years of experience as a creative director and hands-on graphic designer for business, nonprofit and government entities—successful brand development begins with clarifying the objectives to create a strategy and concept. ALL visual communication is functional. The concept is the design solution and primary idea providing a reason behind every choice.

 
A big idea functions as an organizational totem pole around which strategy, behavior, actions and communications are aligned. These simply worded statements are used internally as a beacon of a distinctive culture and externally as a competitive advantage that helps consumers make choices.
