The Business of Design: Meet & Greet

Our colorful displays attracted many Expo visitors. Emilie is happy to talk
about design and its role in the success of any business or organization (2012).

Each fall, the Glendale Chamber of Commerce hosts the Business Expo Showcase. We book space early, since this is a great way to meet new clients personally and display our design work.

Marlene Oliphant Designs
Marlene Oliphant visited Emilie's booth at last year's Expo. Marlene is a talented interior designer with clients in Southern California and across the U.S. She asked us to update her firm's corporate identity/stationery system, and to design display advertising which ran in nearby country club directories. We also created a cool sticker celebrating her firm's 10th anniversary (shown here).

Brava, Marlene, and good luck in your next 10 years! We look forward to our next collaboration.

Long story short — Emilie ALWAYS meets interesting new clients at the Chamber of Commerce Business Expo!


Thanks to all who visited our booth this week at the 2012 Expo. It was exciting to meet so many people interested in art and design. As usual, Emilie connected with many interested visitors, some of whom talked about specific projects.

Websites and corporate identity are still at the top of most business owners' "must-do" lists, but a number of people inquired about print design, too. Emilie was happy to show samples and talk about how quality printed materials supplement a good website and other marketing efforts. A recognizable, consistent brand image is all-important.

We'll help your business in 2012 and beyond. Please contact Emilie at or call her at 818 242-9055 to talk about a new logo, website, or anything else that's "creative." 

In addition to full-service art direction and design, we offer copywriting, photography, illustration and professional web programming. Never "cookie-cutter" and always original. Since 1996. 

Good design is good business.
