    • Trigger an impulse purchase
    • Capture market share
    • Acquire a new audience

    With today’s technology, anything is possible to elevate your design and meet the expectations of today’s fickle and discerning consumers—from augmented reality to unique, hyper-customization, from a full sensory experience to social responsibility and sustainability.

    My Specialties

    Strategy

    Sound design strategies empower business growth. My collaborative approach is proven to:

    • Generate new revenue streams
    • Break into new markets
    • Acquire new clients

    Together, we will define, research, brainstorm, evaluate, facilitate and train. Deliverables are customized for each client, but may include an analysis, a process, a system, research or a series of workshops for your team. Typically the work is contracted as a long-term engagement.

    Creative Direction

    Don’t let confusing headlines, inconstant branding or copy-cat marketing crush your sales. Today’s consumers expect a harmonized, seamless experience during every step of their journey: from the retail shelf to their home and on their digital devices. Together, we’ll:

    • Determine your positioning
    • Define precise value propositions
    • Develop clear messaging
    • Create consistent branding across all touch points—from mobile online to retail off-line and everywhere in between.

    Packaging Design

    Today’s consumer has a very short attention span. And it’s getting shorter. To be seen and engage consumers, your design needs to be instantly bold, colorful, and compelling. Design is essential for attracting, engaging and delighting consumers—from initial brand research to the point of sale, product use, social sharing and even into the recycle bin.

    Working together, we’ll examine every facet of the consumer’s experience with the package:

    • Seeing it online
    • Noticing it on the shelf
    • Picking it up
    • Purchasing it
    • Unboxing it
    • Reviewing it and sharing it online

    Then, through a collaborative process of brainstorming, concepting, and refining, we’ll create designs that make consumers say “Wow!”

    Brand Identity Design

    First, design the foundation

    Engaging packaging begins with strong branding elements. If those are not established, we’ll begin with the basics:

    • Logo
    • Typography
    • Color palette
    • Graphic elements
    • Hierarchy
    • Brand guidelines

    Then, we’ll apply this graphic system across multiple touch points—from print collateral, direct mail and signage to websites, e-blasts and social media content.
