In the words of the late, great Apple® CEO, Steve Jobs, “Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.”
Every day we’re bombarded by thousands of advertisements that are trying to get our attention, but many of them don’t work at all. Instead of becoming part of the noise, consider hiring a graphic designer to turn your ideas into strong visual concepts.
What is Graphic Design?
Although the term “graphic design” was supposedly first coined as recently as 1922, the creative “design” process has gone on far, far longer. Even the earliest humans were designing things – clothing, tools, shelter, weapons, and so on. To work properly, they all required some elements of design.
Then, of course, we really got creative by drawing on cave walls and writing messages in elaborately drawn hieroglyphics. In Medieval times, we lavishly embellished specially treated animal skins and illuminated them with gold, silver, and other colors to create spectacular manuscripts. As you can see, graphic design has been around for millennia.
Now we’ve reached the digital age, and graphic designs are everywhere. Of course, digital tools don’t make good artists out of bad ones, but we can get a lot more work done and more efficiently than ever before. What used to take hours or even days can now be completed in minutes.
Our graphic design team at LaunchDM understands the deeper levels of design, the ones that enable us to create an innovative concept and deliver on the promise of your brand. We understand why one photo is better than another. We understand how emotions are aligned with color, and why certain colors make a bigger impact in certain designs or packaging than others. We understand that our designs have to look pretty and “work.”
What We Design
A graphic designer can help you develop a brand that matches the quality of your products and services. We can deliver beautifully printed business cards and brochures. We can design logos that get attention, gain recognition, and communicate the values behind your business.
We focus on branding to effectively communicate the “heart” of your business and define your company’s “personality.” We can help you build a creative brand design from scratch or improve your current brand to establish a fresh identity for your business.
As a creative agency, we also love to imagine, design and build exactly the types of websites our clients need in order to engage their customers. Because our managing partners came from the world of painting and fine arts, our goal is to elevate all of our work to an art form. You know a great web design when you see it… but we understand what really makes it work.
And then there are signs. In the old days, signs were simple ads placed on buildings, and banners announced the next marching band in the parade. Today, our compelling environmental graphic designs might come in the shape of bus wraps, billboards, branding signage or trade-show booth graphics.
Whether you need a new identity for your Philadelphia business, a website, printed collateral, and/or a promotional campaign, our graphic designers will collaborate with you to convey your message. Every great brand has a story, and LaunchDM can help you graphically tell yours.
