SUCCESSFUL design = HAPPY CLIENTS
For over a decade, Ann Marie Newell has been creating award winning design for a wide variety of clients, helping individuals and businesses become more visible, confident, and successful. She has a deep reverence for beauty and humanity in all its diverse forms. She finds inspiration from the fascinating sources in San Francisco - from bizarre city signage, the colorful populace, to the perfect, ever-changing color palettes of surrounding nature.
Ann Marie has an extensive formal education that informs her creative process, as well as excellent knowledge of Adobe design software. All of this is nice, but - she's got something else that makes design projects just work.
• Ann Marie truly listens to her clients.
• She cares deeply about making clients happy.
• Ann Marie's keen intuition allows her to easily envision successful designs.
• Ann Marie gets things done right, the first time. She usually hits on the "Yes! That's IT!" design in the first round.
Some come to her for business card re-vamps or a postcard design (that's fine!) Some clients want a simple online brochure about their services. Others want visual overhauls of their entire business. The Royal Branding Treatment uncovers exactly what makes your business unique and stand out. Then the fun part... a fabulous new visual direction is created that epitomizes what makes you exceptional, and fully engages your target audience.
