In Print

There is something special about holding a printed brochure in your hands. To be able to flip the page, touch and feel is so different then looking at it online. There will always be a place for a printed piece in your companies marketing.

Printed graphic design is the base of my creative background. I have designed thousands of brochures, direct mail campaigns, sales pages, catalogs, annual reports and logos over my design career.

Working with small startup businesses to large international corporations has given me a wide range of experiences. Below is just a small sample of my work. If you want to see something specific, just let me know.

I use Adobe Creative CS programs for all my print design work. Adobe InDesign is perfect for laying out any size project, from one-page flyers to 100-page catalogs. Adobe Illustrator for graphics and Adobe Photoshop for photographs, make your project print-ready so we can produce a high-quality trouble-free printed piece. 

Brochure & Catalog Design and Layout

This 12-page brochure was a trial report jam-packed with custom infographics. A clean design with plenty of color is balanced with just enough white space to make it easy to read.

Catalogs need special attention to detail. Whether big or small, a clean layout makes it easy for customers to find what they are looking. The wholesale product catalog below had an abundance of information that needed to fit in a small space. And the o-ring technical product catalog was full of charts, numbers and tech drawings.

Annual Report Design and Layout

I've had the pleasure of designing the WBD (Wisconsin Business Development) 16-page annual report for many years. When I first met with WBD their printer was laying out their annual report. A low-quality design impacts a the way the community views your business. Each year, I worked hand in hand with the marketing director to create an exciting new design with new charts and infographics each year. Make a good impression with your print materials by hiring an experienced graphic designer. I now design all of their print materials, including sales flyers, business cards, banners and other collateral.

Graphic Design & Marketing Guidelines

I will always recommend creating a set of creative guidelines for any size company. Even as a small business, it's really important to keep your marketing materials cohesive. Choosing colors and fonts are the easiest way to get started. It's what's going to make you recognizable in your community, whether it's local or international!

Direct Mail

Direct Mail is not "dead". I actually found recent statistics that are very interesting. Response rate in 2016 was at 5.3%. The report states "People read postcards in greater numbers with a 3.9% year-over-year increase". So let's create something great together and get your brand recognized through direct mail.
