2017 is here!

I can’t believe the new year is upon us already. It definitely came here quickly. As like so many of my clients, I have not been the best at keeping up with my blog. You know what? That’s OK. I’ve been busy keeping my files and software up to date and delivering high quality design to my clients.

Speaking of clients – I have a few new ones that I think you should check out and watch for future changes with them during the year. First is Savvy Woman Secrets magazine. I started working with them last year and the holiday issue was my third issue that I was deeply involved with. This is a great Dane County area magazine featuring many wonderful businesses. The holiday issue even had a secret section that featured some amazing deals. Another new client is Jada’s Garden & Greenhouse. Jada has been doing personal gardening and landscaping for some time and does amazing work. She will be opening a new Greenhouse in the Mount Horeb area sometime this year. Watch for more information on her website www.jadasgarden.com which we were very proud to work on.

Lastly, I hope you all have a great 2017. I look forward to working with you all and hope it is a wonderful year!

Design All Around Us

Monona Terrace

I’m amazed sometimes by the different designs I find all around town – sometimes in the areas I least expect it. From a terrace chair to city banners up and down the street. Some amaze me and some just make me shake my head.

My wife likes to tease me when I critique menu design when we are out. I just can’t help it – its in my blood. But at the same time, how a menu reads, or looks to the restaurant’s customers is almost as important as the taste of the food. Both are part of the experience and leave an impression. That is the same with your businesses design. Whether its an advertisement, your letterhead – or even an invoice – you want your design to leave a good impression.

If you come across a design that you particularly like – or hate – let us know. Tell us what impression they left on you. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
