ORANGEVILLE COMMUNICATION DESIGN
‘Design’ isn’t about making things look pretty: effective design should entice and persuade. A smartly designed website should direct your visitors to take action, like clicking a ‘buy’ button for instance. A well-crafted brochure should compel your readers to keep turning pages. Professional graphic design has the potential to deliver measurable results for any business: small or large.
Certified RGDs have a demonstrated understanding of business best practices, accessible design principles, research methods and ethical responsibilities, and the successful application of strategic design principles to marketing & communications challenges.
What Is an RGD?
We pride ourselves on seeing things from a different perspective.
We look at the bigger picture, not just what is the task at hand. Where our clients are today is important, but where they want to take the business or want to go is really what matters. We work through both your short-term goals and your long-term goals.
We like to think of it this way: if you don’t build a proper foundation when building a house, then you are going to have issues, or changes down the road…and some of those changes will require more time or more money. Everything we do is based on where your business is today and where it is going to be down the road, so you don’t have to re-do or spend money that can be better spent elsewhere.
Your customer’s attention and loyalty is one of the most valuable resources you have and their attention spans are only getting shorter: everyone is competing for these resources. The key is to ensure that you align with what you have, with what they need, and communicated it in a clear and consistent manner, which in turn builds their trust and credibility.
Just starting your business or looking to re-brand? We always recommend starting at the source: your logo & visual identity. When businesses don’t take graphic design seriously in the beginning, they will more than likely go through a design overhaul eventually – in some cases, more than once. However, quality design has longevity. Paying for great graphic design once is no more expensive than paying for subpar design multiple times. Not to mention, redesigning a business’ image over and over wastes time and can be detrimental to your brand.

HOW WE WORK TOGETHER
OUR DESIGN PROCESS
We are great listeners. The first step in our process is to meet and gather insight. We spend a great deal of time getting to know our clients and start each partnership with a discovery meeting to get a full understanding of your company values and goals.
DEFINE WHO YOU ARE
Once we have defined your brand messaging, voice, and project goal we brainstorm a creative strategy and project roadmap. Now that we have a full understanding of what you are hoping to achieve the actual designing can get started.
DESIGN & REVIEW
Every client and project is unique and that is why we love what we do! Each project goes through research, concept and revision stages. Once the final is approved we provide you with the print or digital files. We partner with some great local printers and can arrange printing or file submission as needed.
