These are some of the services we offer. Today I would like to focus on the Design part of our work.

When I got to thinking about it, I wondered just how to explain graphic design to someone who knew nothing about it. As a matter of fact, I wondered just exactly how much I really knew about graphic design. So I started searching.

Graphic design, also known as communication design, is the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content.

So this becomes the art and practice of communicating ideas and information in our context. We figure out what needs to be said or communicated and how to communicate it in a memorable manner.

We need something to catch the eye and embed itself into the memory. So if we’re talking about car racing, we might emphasize the point with checkered flags. Checkered Flags Crossed

Perhaps we’d use a photograph or a portion there of.


The most important thing to remember in working with a designer is that you need to communicate to them a clear idea of what you want to say, to whom you want to say it, and how you want the person to whom you are communicating to respond.

Give your designer the story you want to tell with the design and let the designer know the outcome you desire.

Design is storytelling. Design has purpose.
