Karm was an awesome designer to work with. He was very forthcoming and willing to work with us for aspect of the design. He is very dedicated and his style is exactly what we were looking for---professional and sharp. I'd recommend him to anyone I know.

What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a new public charter school opening in August 2015. We currently operate a middle school, and in the fall we will be opening our elementary school, starting with kindergarten and first grade and adding a grade each year until we are K-5th grade.
We are college prep program but we also strongly believe in educating the whole child and providing a joyous learning experience.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We would like a postcard/flier (something slightly bigger than a traditional postcard but that we can have printed on card stock or something thicker than a regular piece of paper) that we can mail out, advertising our upcoming information night. We've done several mailings throughout the last six or eight months, and we've always used the same design. We would like to do something different this time, in an effort to visually reengage with people who may have seen our other postcard several times already.
We have a logo and a general design aesthetic that we've been working with but we are looking for some fresh ideas--not to go completely away from what we've been using but to change it up, add some new life into our brand. The branding of our elementary school has been an extension of our middle school--as it should be--but it's also a bit too staid for an elementary school; it needs some pop, some fun. It needs to "speak" to the middle school aesthetic but it doesn't need to replicate it.
If we are happy with the design we end up choosing, we may embark on complete rebranding of our elementary school aesthetic--from our logo, to our web site, to our uniforms.
I'm uploading a brochure and flyer/mailer that we've used in the past. We are definitely interested in continuing to work with the more vibrant greens that are featured on the brochure. Also, the text from the mailer is more or less the text we'd like on our new postcard/mailer. We can change it around a bit and the details will, obviously, be a little different, but it's more or less what we are looking at in terms of content.
