Bring Your Brand to Life

Designs for Growth creates the impactful communications that create measurable and consistent results that build customer loyalty and bring your brand to life.

Editorial Print Design entails more than mere placement of images and text on a page.

Effective editorial presents information in key summaries the can reader process, employs typeface styles and images to tell a more meaningful story, and invokes an emotional response in the reader.

Designs for Growth will help you craft the words and images to tell your story. We’ll explore whether illustration or photography more powerful, then work with your existing photographer or illustrator or help you choose one whose style achieves your desired look. We’ll facilitate a smooth work process with outside creative by effectively communicating desired results (including a shot list) and, if cost efficiency is a priority, we’ll find the perfect image through research into existing photography and illustrations.

You’ll come away from our collaboration with visually compelling content that enhances reader connection. Let Designs for Growth help you create a publication that stands apart from the others.

Facebook. Twitter. LinkedIn. Instagram. TikTok. Pinterest.

Like commercial marketing, the primary focus is on the consumer–on learning what people want and need rather than trying to persuade them to buy what we happen to be producing. Marketing talks to the consumer, not about the product. The planning process takes this consumer focus into account by addressing the elements of the “marketing mix.” This refers to decisions about 1) the conception of a Product, 2) Price, 3) distribution (Place), and 4) Promotion. These are often called the “Four Ps” of marketing. Social marketing also adds a few more “P’s.” At the end is an example of the marketing mix.

Discover fresh and easy-to-implement tips and strategies for successfully and profitably integrating Facebook, Twitter and other social sites into your overall marketing plan.
