Wisconsin Graphic Design
Graphic design is the process of visual communication, and problem-solving through the use of type, space, image and color.
Our graphic design services include identity (logos and branding), publications (magazines, newspapers and books), print advertisements, print materials (business cards, brochures, flyers, letterhead, stationary, posters), website / video graphics & elements, signs and social media marketing.
The name “Graphic Design” first appeared in print in the 1922 essay “New Kind of Printing Calls for New Design” by William Addison Dwiggins, an American book designer in the early 20th century. Graphic Design as a discipline has a relatively recent history, graphic design-like activities span the history of humankind: from the caves of Lascaux, to Rome’s Trajan’s Column to the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages, to the dazzling neons of Ginza.
From road signs to technical schematics, from interoffice memorandums to reference manuals, graphic design enhances the transfer of knowledge and visual messages. Readability and legibility is enhanced by improving the visual presentation and layout of text.
Just remember, a brand identity must be consistent and constant to be effective. You want unified branding in everything you do, from your company logo to your annual report to your online newsletter —otherwise, your employees, clients and prospects get mixed or conflicting information. Its sounds like common sense but many business need a hand with brand strategy. Step 1 is to plan the brand. Measure twice, cut once. We can help with your brand strategy from start to finish to freshening your brand years down the road. Alot of companies small & large update their brand every 7-10 years.

How often should I update my brand image?
Most big companies freshen up their brand image every 7–10 years by doing minor alterations and in some cases a major brand overhaul. Changing fonts and color combinations or eliminating shapes can keep your company from looking obsolete. If your company has experienced a transformation such as a merger, a new company direction, or a company name change, you need to update your company’s brand identity.
Do I really need a custom-designed corporate logo?
A custom-designed corporate logo is central to your brand building. You want to set yourself apart, and a custom logo is one excellent way to do that. The last thing you want is someone else using a similar logo because your original graphic designer grabbed some cheap logo from one of the thousands of websites that now sell “pre-made” logos on the internet. The problem with those is they are not unique. A thousand other businesses may have purchased that same logo. Prospective clients need to take one look and know your corporate logo instantly. So yes, you absolutely, positively need a professional custom-designed logo for you business or organization.
