That's me in those big headers up there. That little guy above is a symbol of what I've been doing for the last 33 years, working with a wide variety of clients on a wide variety of projects, using a wide variety of skills. I become a part of their world, take in the environment of their business, their goals, and their story–and that's what informs the strategy of the design approach and inspires the creativity for the visuals.
I'd say the raven is an appropriate symbol of what I bring to the DG team. Known to be curious with notable feats of problem-solving, they're also smart enough to learn from their mistakes and take corrective action to avoid repeating the process. These same traits help when generating creative ideas or learning new ways to expand our skill sets. And their high level of devotion to their family represents the level of devotion we have to our clients.
It is a great pleasure to work with Karen Adair and her team at DG Creative. Their speed to design, and ability to maintain brand identity across multiple equity pieces has greatly increased the perception of our brands. Their work and value far exceeds what I have seen from very expensive national design firms.
You offer can-do optimism and energy for each assignment, large or small. You are affordable, but you don't do "cheap" work. You're creative, while still understanding deadlines. Genuine eagerness to engage, and the desire to make things that work for clients ... those are rare assets. DG Creative has them.
DG sincerely provides a level of service and expertise like no other firm with this ability because you honor the one-to-one connection with the client which I find extremely valuable. You are extremely cost-effective because you have the talent of a team of many. Your talent and enthusiasm is ever-present and has allowed me to take on projects that I wouldn’t even have attempted with a larger more cumbersome firm. Our brand has evolved over time with the evolution of our businesses: Golden Vineyards, Golden Cellars, Mendocino Olive Oil, Golden Pig, SIP Mendocino…couldn’t have done it without your creative genius!
Jane Goodall said "WOW, PERFECT!" seeing the logo DG created for our 500 theatre national live broadcast. Karen provided art in format perfectly for tricky shirt and theatre poster printers as well as designing for online and numerous paper applications. Everyone loved the emblematic look that just captured our event's message. We put it everywhere–looked incredible full on movie theatre screens! Karen is a world-class talent. She gets branding, responding as needed and tempering client input. I would put her up against any marquis-address firm.
I’m amazed with how quickly you were able to understand our business and provide incredible logo, tag line and radio ad . Your branding and voice-over services are outstanding! It takes incredible marketing talent to bring the past and present together in harmony as you did with our company. I cannot express enough how incredibly reasonable, effective and enjoyable you have been to work with.
From our very first meeting with Karen and Justin we knew we'd landed with a team that would make the process of constructing a website adventurous, creative and fun. What more could you want!! Well, more we got! THEY were able to understand the complexities of our businesses and creatively combine them through branding brilliance. They are world-class designers who approach designing from the core.
Working with Karen is a wonderful experience for a person like myself who has general design ideas but needs a great artistic mind to bring them to life. She helped formulate our brand from the ground up and I couldn’t be happier.
Karen’s work is truly “a symphony of design” evoking an essence of the composition. This comes from a unique understanding of the subject matter at hand.
