GRAPHIC DESIGN NEEDS TO SOLVE BUSINESS PROBLEMS
Good design requires research, analysis and close collaboration with you to reflect your organization’s vision, strengths, messages and priorities.
Before any actual creative work begins, Wild Blackberry Studio conducts extensive background research. I will meet with you to understand your goals, audience needs and project expectations. In addition, I will conduct market, customer and competitive research to gather additional insight. Once my research is complete, I will provide a creative brief to summarize the results of my inquiries and outline the project, along with a detailed project schedule to ensure on-time delivery.
When my analysis is complete and you are on board with the initial concepts, design work begins. I keep your communication needs and priorities at the core of every design decision – from colors to image selection to font styles. Typically, I explore several different creative approaches before centering in on the main creative ideas. Based on your feedback, I evolve these creative approaches into comprehensive design directions. As part of this process, I will deliver at least three creative concepts for your evaluation.
Logo design is my favorite kind of challenge. I love helping small businesses figure out how they want customers to think and feel about them and building an identity around that. The logo development is an intense process which distills your company’s essence down to its simplest and most memorable form. I love jumping in to this with two feet.
DESIGN FOR BUSINESS
Design for business includes all the bits and pieces you need to keep your name and image in front of your customers. Everything from a fresh logo, business collaterol, web and print ads, PowerPoint slide masters, social media assets to product labels and packaging or event posters and mailers. If it is about your brand, chances are I can help.
Photography is something that gives me joy. It is also handy in design work. I can do custom photos for your project or make creative use of existing assets. I can touch up family photos or crop to find the sweet spot. I am happy to do casual portraits, especially of pets. I can also do compositing in Photoshop. I’ve also been known to turn pictures into pages for scrapbookers.
I am a Graphic Designer who does web. This means I can make an attractive and functional web site for you. I can pull in expert coders when needed for sites that go beyond the basic. I can do image preparation and other behind the scenes work to support your web project. If you need designs and assets that play nicely with your social media campaigns, I’m your girl.

SMALL BIZ START UP PACKAGE
If you are starting up a new business, you are going to need a full brand work up. This can mean a logo and business cards but might also include things like letterhead, folders, postcards, brochures, a website, social media bits and pieces (like the right sized logo or cover for a FaceBook page), PowerPoint slides, a style guide and much more. Extend your brand across all forms of communication and it becomes very powerful; telling your story to your customers consistently and well. I can help.
SMALL BIZ TUNE UP
Maybe your logo and materials are a little old and tired. Maybe you bought a random, discount logo from the internet and kind of regret it. Maybe you threw together a piece of clipart and used a font that came standard on your computer. Or maybe you have a logo you like but don’t know how to extend that into a brand. Good news! I can help you. I can take existing brands and add new elements that extend theme and meaning and make you look great. If you are ready to start over, or take an old idea and make it new, I can help with that too.
