The Crowne Jewel

Last week I completed design for another monthly publication, “The Crowne Jewel”. This small, mail-able trifold brochure has become an excellent tool for the Crowne Realty, LLC Realtors to keep in touch with their current and past customers. It also provides valuable information about the home buying and selling process, and tips and tricks for maintaining a home.

Certainly, all of this information could have been emailed to their clients (and waiting to get lost in a sea of messages), but they choose to go the printed route. I think it is the right choice, and I am guessing many of their clients agree.

I hope that the agents feel it is well worth their investment, and their clients find the content to be informative and interesting. (Besides, when you are in real estate, it never hurts to get your smile in front of your target market just one more time!)

Websites That WOW

While my most recent blog post was touting the importance of print, this post is “all about that web” (I feel like Meghan Trainor needs to jump on this fresh beat).  I am formally trained in print design, but I naturally gravitated toward web and other electronic media given the sharp rise in social media and online marketing.  Many potential customers’ first instinct is to “Google” a business or person before they actually visit the store front or meet them in person (I am guilty). Often, a first impression is made on a smart phone or computer screen, and it better leave a good one or it’s likely to be forgotten (just as quickly as you can “swipe” to the next screen – also guilty). See all the trendy terminology I am using? I am soooo 2015.

Below are just a few of my favorite websites that I have had the pleasure to design and code in recent years. Each client brings unique needs and requires varying functionality when it comes to their websites, which can sometimes be challenging to fit into a successful design, but the outcome is so important to the success of their business. Hats off to all the true coders and web developers out there, I dabble a bit here and there, but mostly I just make them look pretty.
