We are looking for an ongoing relationship with a designer: In addition to a logo and business card, we will want to create social media and web branding as well as an email signature, letterhead etc. our style is modern and minimal with perhaps something a little surprising -- a pop of color or a graphic element.
We make difficult ideas clear and compelling. No lightbulbs, but connected circles might be possible. We suggest or point a direction. Also maybe an abstract paper clip type thing.
About DGA: We partner with design firms or web developers, but we only handle writing projects. To our knowledge, we are the only firm who has staked out this territory for the industries we serve.
That said, we aren’t just writers and editors – we are a consultancy. We manage large-scale projects, some of them in the thousands of pages, for leading financial service, law firm and university clients. Most of our work is not public-facing, or if it is, has a very targeted audience (such as chief marketing officers at top international law firms or university boards of trustees).
Here are some testimonials: http://deborahgaines.com/testimonials/
Our clients value a high level of intelligence and education; the ability to understand nuance and translate complex concepts with clarity and precision; and the creativity to make their work stand out in a sophisticated way, without a lot of bells and whistles.
Sites we love include:
https://www.fi.edu/-- LOVE the Franklin Institute site
http://fromclarity.co/-- not the look so much as the concept of clarity
Finally, I really like sculpture gardens. The juxtaposition of art and nature resonates with me.
