Design for Business

Custom design, in print and online

Ours was the only creative firm with a booth devoted exclusively to graphic and web design at this year's 2015 Business Expo presented by the Glendale Chamber of Commerce. The Expo is the city's biggest networking event of the year, and an engaging way to meet fellow business professionals.

This year, our displays featured one design many attendees recognized right away — our 90th anniversary logo for local landmark the Alex Theatre (see photo below). We also showed recent websites and branding for L.A. Philharmonic principal trumpet Tom Hooten, Bugle Memorial Honors, The Racket Doctor, Inc. (L.A.'s largest tennis store), and Movement Links, an elite physical therapy practice based in Arcadia, California.

Our printed work samples included 2014 and 2015 annual and semi-annual reports for Glendale Adventist Medical Center and Ascencia. We also showed our studio's new responsive website:

It was nice to see some of our clients — Natalie Profant Komuro and Sarah Joung of Ascencia (the homeless services organization and shelter serving this area), Elissa Glickman and Nina Crowe of Glendale Arts / the Alex Theatre, and Elise Kalfayan of Sunroom Desk. Many friends and colleagues stopped by to say "hi" and the room was buzzing with activity!

Colleagues from the printing industry included Mike Sevigny of Chromatic, Inc., (a local company we've worked with for years), and Rod Salazar of Printing Control. We saw impressive printed samples from the HP Indigo press and terrific new papers and finishes.
