For over 15 years I have had the pleasure to design countless publications (100s) – brochures, leaflets, business cards, pamphlets, banners, business exhibition stands, etc., for countless international agencies, associations, businesses, etc., for both domestic and international promotional usages.
Travel Fairs and Business Exhibitions
Regardless of industry, any professional business person will testify that this is an important time to have both suppliers and buyers under the same roof – it’s absolutely critical that you are able to distinguish your company’s image from your competitors while maintaining your unique blend of originality.
For over a decade I have visited, supported and/or directly participated in international fairs ranging from World Travel Market London (WTM), ITB Berlin Germany, Adventure Travel Show London, COTTM Beijing, Hong Kong, BIT Milan Italy, Adventure Travel Show D.C., etc.
Many business exhibitions allow you to participate as a country exhibitor and/or independent business exhibitor – I have designed and produced a variety of internationally competitive digital and printed publications for these events for associations and businesses alike.
Marketing Materials for Businesses and Social Economic Development
For over 15 years I have been working with both public and private sectors in the development of promotional marketing materials to promote businesses and destinations globally to advance social economic development. I have worked in numerous industries (tourism, meat, cashmere, mining, etc.) via international agencies (USAID, etc.), associations and even via personal freelancing initiatives.
In my professional history, I have designed and developed 100s of projects that cover everything possible: websites, social media campaigns, brochures, leaflets, pamphlets, CDs, DVDs, Flash Disks, banners, posters, pens, t-shirts, hats, business cards, etc.
Web Design; Balance Beyond Design
Today it’s just not enough to have a website but now we have to be minimalistic yet informative and entertaining, linked to all social-media venues, easy to update, without boring users with heavy texts while still ranking high on Google and other search engines which are saturated with countless competitors. Online user trends have become “picky-eaters”; they don’t want the whole meal just straight to the good stuff or desert.
For over 2 decades I have been designing websites for countless business clients, associations, humanitarian initiatives, etc., across numerous industries – even destination brand portals.
I successfully manage to combine the required elements and strategically take top ranking year after year in all major search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.).
I am familiar in designing from scratch, wordpress, joomla, etc., though recently I am enjoying wordpress as it streamlines repetitive tasks and allows more precious time to be allocated to other project works. Beyond having a good website having a good firewall is exceptionally important today – consider it as “insurance”; nothing worse than losing a great website owing to a simple exploitation
So yes, today when constructing a good and function website their are countless of considerations beyond “design”… Once you have developed a good balance, then it pays off in the long-run.
Digital Design – Marketing Flash Cards
CDs, DVD, and now Flash Cards… Today with the storage capacity and USB speeds, businesses and a variety of organizations have an amazing opportunity to design, develop and produce an incredible multi-media experience.
Instead of carrying heavy brochures, leaflets, business cards, etc., from exhibition to exhibition – why not just pack a light box of a few hundred or more Flash Disks that contains all your business’s promotional materials, films, etc., at no freight cost.
Save money on shipping, save potential clients’ time by incorporating digital searches through your materials, link to online resources, booking sites, and more!
Paper is nice but expensive, time consuming and not very environmentally friendly.
