Have you ever worked with a graphic design firm and felt like (a) you weren’t heard; (b) you didn’t understand the firm’s design process; or (c) the designer was more interested in their portfolio than your success?
No need to put up with that! At Avalon Project Partners, we listen to your concerns and point of view (after all, who knows your business better than you?), we take time to explain our process and what you will get for your money, and we understand that your success comes first.
OUR FIRST DATE
Whether we’re helping you rebrand from scratch, or creating marketing materials to build on the identity you have, we ask the important questions up front to ensure we understand your:

- Sales and Presentation kits
- Trade show booth
- Power Point presentations
- Direct mail campaigns
- Web site
SO HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN, EXACTLY?
Initial consultation: It’s complimentary, it’s in-person, and it’s more than lip-service. We’re looking for a serious relationship, so naturally we want to get to know you first. Who is your audience? How do you want them to feel about you? What do you WANT to say, and is that what are you actually saying? What do you want potential customers to DO? We can go to your place, our place, or your favorite coffee place.
Scope of Project and Proposal: We provide a clear project scope, proposal and cost estimate for every project. Surprises are great for parties, and terrible for business, so we cut out all that mystery expense and open-ended billing. We’ll always keep you updated, and if project scope does change, we’ll send a revised proposal before proceeding.
The Design Process: Once the ink is dry on your proposal, we’ll create the designated number of initial designs, and guide you through choosing the best fit for your business. Modern and flat, sparse and functional, classic and timeless or fun and friendly – your brand will fit your goals, budget and schedule. Depending on scope, we may set up presentations, phone meetings, and show revisions as necessary.
File Production: We use the industry standard Adobe suite – Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Acrobat Pro – to create problem-free, print-ready or web-ready files. With over 30 years in the business (back when there were actual art boards, if you recall) we know all the pitfalls of color matching, how paper choices affect your final product, and how to make a multipurpose design that works in all media.
Project management: Who’s got the time to manage all the moving parts of a project? We do! Avalon Project Partners can help manage timelines, coordinate the process with other professionals, and see your project through from start to finish. You’ve got your own business to run, we know, so let us take care of this one.
Contact us today for a complimentary consultation, and let’s get started on creating a brand that hits them in the heart, stays in their brain, leaps from their mouth when chatting with clients, associates and friends!
