Super stoked about how this 3-D rendering is coming out. A few years ago I got into rendering spaces for a client. This was my first time working on this concept. Looking forward to doing more of these in the future. #3drendering #graphicdesigner #gotjadesignlife #greatful #stoked

Camp Care is a wonderful organization that provides a safe place for kids battling cancer to run and play. I recently had the opportunity to create some collateral for the upcoming golf tournament that they host each year. The colors and dragonfly incorporated into the materials to honor one of the camp's children who lost her battle with cancer. Check out the Camp CARE page to see what they are about.

Business is more than just making money. While that is, of course, a goal of mine, it is not the sole purpose of doing what I do. I always have like building things and helping people, those are the two foundations of why I do this. The fact that I can do those two things while doing something that I enjoy doing is merely an exciting bonus for me.

This desire to use my time and talents to serve others brought me to something that I am very proud of, Free Fridays. This is an idea that I got from a talk given the awesome Arron Draplin founder of Draplin Design Co., the concept being to use your design talents to give back to your community. With this in mind, I decided to dedicate one Friday a month to help a startup or non-profit with their design needs.

I have been doing this for a few months now and in that time have had the opportunity to meet some new folks and help out some great causes.

If you are a small company or know non-profit and need some design help, let's chat and see what we can do to help.

Your Outdated Print Collateral Is Bad for Business - MARION Marketing

Print collateral can be either an asset to your company or handicap you; keeping you from closing that great client. I once had a solar company come out to give me a presentation about the benefit so of installing solar on my house. he offered a top-tier product and pointed out some other things they could offer that put them above their competitors. He had me on the hook, then he opened his presentation materials. They had to be one of the most off-putting visuals I have seen. The layout was confusing the information was dated and had inaccuracies. Needless to say, he lost that sale, simply because after looking at his marketing I began to question his companies ability to deliver the quality product that had just been described to me.

Your marketing is important. In a recent study conducted by the CMO Council (a ground of global marketing executives), they found that 70% of companies had no tool to track the obsolescence of their marketing. Resulting in people wasting a large sum of their marketing budgets on marketing that was doing nothing for their organizations.

I am going to be posting some other articles in the future to help you navigate the waters of marketing and brand management. Because I hate to see companies waster their money on products that do not work and make their companies look bad to boot. Happy Friday Folks

Print collateral has excellent staying power. That may be its greatest strength but can also prove to be the source of your toughest marketing headache.

6 Benefits for You and Your Community From Supporting Local Entrepreneurs

Starting up a business is probably one of the coolest things that I have had the opportunity to do. I have always like building things and helping people, so starting a business seemed like a great idea. Working in the design field I get the chance to not only build a company of my very own but I get to help others to achieve that same goal, by helping them figure out their branding and marketing needs. Here is an article I found that shows six benefits of working with local businesses. Has this been your experience with working with smaller companies?

Locally owned businesses give communities a unique character but those businesses need loyal customers to survive.

December 7th, a day that will live in infamy. One of my youngest memories was of this memorial. I was running along the grounds playing with some of my friends when a old man grabbed me by the arm looked sternly into my eyes and said "This is a place of memories and mormorials, be quite and show your respect". Though the man did not raise his voice or do anything else, the tone in his voice and look in his eyes let me know that he was really trying to share something with me about that place. Something I have never forgotten.

From a greatful citizen I would like to say thank you to all those men and women who gave their last breath on this day all this years ago. Thank you and RIP.

Stuggle is just opportunity waiting to show itself. This week I will be working on a particually challenging project for one of my clients. The challege is to create an interactive PDF that will work on both desktops and Mobile devices, as anyone can tell you this can be tricky since IPads do not respond well to interactive documents. None the less I have an exciting week planed, I have to produce proof of concept by Friday, so time to get to work and figure this gig out. #livingtheDream

How To Create A Useful Value Proposition w/ Examples

Branding a new company or product will only be as fruitful as the forethought that you put into its development. While a logo is one part of this another is the creation of what is called Value Proposition (Value Prop). It is a promise that you are giving using to show clients why they should choose you over the other people, and what they will get in return for making that choice. here is a pretty good article that I came across and wanted to share with you.

Value proposition is the #1 thing that determines whether people will bother reading more about your product or hit the back button. It's also the

Four trends shaping the future of print design

With the digital age upon us many of my clients have asked my what I think the future of print will be? While some might claim "PRINT is DEAD" I would disagree. I think that we are entering an exciting era for print designers. Moving forward I believe that print design will shrink to become an elite item, something that will help companies stand out agains their digital competitors.

Below is an Rticle about some cool new printing techniques coming around. It's worth a reading and reflecting on the state of your printed collateral. In a digital age it is the company that can hand their customer something that gets remembered. Let's build something awesome! #builditbetter #startups

We look at how new technologies are allowing print designers to do more – while craft skills remain in demand.
