your brand on your schedule
great design that happens effortlessly in the background
Outsource is the name of the game when it comes to having graphic design needs met so small businesses can focus on what they value. And the key to tapping into a subscription-based graphic design service is knowing the ebb and flow of your marketing needs- chances are you already know your rhythm. The missing link might just be someone operating in the background to pull it all together.
efficiency is key
Not every business has the marketing dollars to hire Leo Burnett to create the next Marlboro Man ad for them. With almost half of businesses in Illinois being not just small, but “micro”, a full time in-house designer is not going to be one of those 5 people on staff.
we love design, but not the drama that can sometimes come with it. the process that gets you on your way to easy automated design for your business can be realized in a few easy steps.
step 1/ conversation
First things first. Let’s kick it off with a brainstorm.
What sets you apart from competitors? What’s the personality of your organization? What are your graphic needs and how often do you need them? We like to do this in person, but zoom is king these days and that’s OK too (bonus, pants optional). We’ll follow up with a proposal to the subscription plan we feel is a good fit for you.
step 2/ investigation
Next, you fill out our brand investigation form and give us the goods. This will allow you to take a deeper dive into the colors, logos, tag lines, and overall graphic brand story that you’ve worked hard to establish. We’ll learn to visually (and actually) speak in your voice. We’ll also have a discussion about deadlines and time lines and establish a plan.
step 3/ creation
We’re all excited. You’ve paid the first month installment and we’re ready to roll. We’ve established the subscription frequency and content requirements and a plan on how distribution of the goods occurs (probably a cloud-based folder in the system you prefer). We’ll email you PDFs, you show your team, your partners, your mom, and we’ll get it perfect.
step 4/ realization
Approval! We pass off post-print-you name it-ready files and/or coordinate the final procurement of the products we’re working on, including coordination with any necessary vendors. Taking your graphics through realization is not to be undervalued. Remember, we’re print people, so we get it.
