 Kristen McGary is a fabulous holistic healer, with a number of very effective modalities.  In our Visual Voice interviews, Kristen revealed that she had commissioned a mandela from an artist in New Zealand that might be useful in developing her brand identity. The artwork was of sufficient resolution that we could focus on pieces of it, avoiding the cliche of a complete mandela.  We did show Kristen how adjusting the colors could energize her materials, with examples of both demonstrated here.

 The Visual Voice process helped Claire Elizabeth to firmly commit to a name for her practice, helped her to shed the inconsistent materials with which she had identified her practice in the past, and also uncovered some deeply personal artistic material that she never imagined could speak for her and her brand.  Featuring it prominently created a highly distinctive identity and also unleashed an exuberance she had not felt before.    “ I help people heal their chronic pain by tapping into their inner Joy.  I help them expand into the person they want to be, and in so doing, their health improves every time.  I struggled with how to represent this as an image, and so for years used a picture of a dolphin, since dolphins represent joy for me.  But in my conversations with Polly, it became clear I needed to take my own advice.  I needed to express my own inner Joy in my business card, as it is my visual voice.  So I took my artwork out of safekeeping and put it on my promotional material for all to see.  The process has been tremendously healing, and the outcome is stunning. ”     Claire Elizabeth, Naia Healing Arts     Client: Claire Elizabeth Program: kick   | start   Deliverables: Logo, Business Card

  Laurie came to us with a logo image she was firmly committed to. We worked with different typefaces and layouts to express the name of her practice, and then laid out the collateral materials she needed.   For Laurie, including a QR code allowed her to target a website landing page to the recipients of her business cards. QR (for "Quick Response") codes have some traction with consumers, but we have found that most people still prefer to type in the website address rather than organize themselves around reading the code to navigate to the site, and we do not often recommend it.    Client: Laurie Ratto Program: kick   | start   Deliverables: Business Card, Pamphlet

 We prepared two versions of Gary's website on this theme of an unfurling fern, reacting subtly to the different images for color and layout. We adopted a clear sans serif typeface for both options that spoke both to Gary's personality and the directness of his therapeutic approach, and we featured his portrait prominently because he deals directly with all of his clients, and because it presented so well.  The importance of an excellent professional portrait cannot be understated, We rarely find clients with the skills to take their own picture, and highly recommend that our clients seek professional assistance.  Background, color, expression, exposure and composition are very difficult to control unless you've had plenty of practice!

 Rikk came to us already committed to logos and colors, but we convinced him that a rebrand didn't necessarily mean starting from scratch.  We tweaked his logo to make it more graphically powerful, changed his typefaces and coordinated them across his many products, and have since developed a number of different marks as his brand has expanded, focusing always on a consistency that makes his brand instantly recognizable.   “My main problem was that I didn’t even know how much I needed Polly’s help.      The first gift she gave me was honest feedback.  She saw how my marketing material wasn’t reflecting me effectively and helped me to see what was possible.  Then, after asking a few questions to better understand my business and my clients, Polly dove in and saved the project.  She pared it down to the essential message, greatly improved readability, and made it something that better reflected me and my business.  And she did so in an amazingly short period of time.  The final product, and the process for getting there, felt like a gift from the Universe!  My marketing material is light-years better at getting my message to those I can serve.    Polly combines her exceptional visual sense with a rare ability to capture the spirit of a person and their business in great design.  From now on, I’m making sure Polly looks at and brings her gift to all my marketing materials!”    Client: Rikk Hansen Program: visual | voice Deliverables: Business Logos, Product Logos, Business Card

 For this practice devoted to the mental game of tennis, we started to think about how shadows follow you around exactly the way your own thoughts do during a tennis match.  We started thinking of the mental game as the shadow game, and this inspired the graphic direction, with a palette of tennis court colors and white lines, the angles intended to convey the kinetic nature of the game.    "Roel, and his partner Polly are a remarkable duet. I hired them to build a creative website for me and they really delivered (www.tennistothemax.com). What I loved about working with them is they were one-stop shopping. From concept, to copy writing, to technical savvy, they were there to hold my hand and walk me through a very complicated process.

 The beautiful mandala-like image of women joining hands in a circle asked us only to give it some space or focus in tight, both of which we did to create a website, banners and business collateral for Wendy Silvers and her wonderful organization.   “Words cannot describe my appreciation for Polly. I could sing her praises all day long. Polly has a unique ability to “know” who you are. She then takes time to assess your message and to brand yourmessage with graphics that are stunning. I began working with Polly right before the Million Mamas Movement launch and I was beyond busy. Polly took a weight off my shoulders as she created gorgeous graphics for my website, Facebook, banner, postcard and business cards. She was available when I needed assistance, followed through and was delightful to work with. She even provided back up when she was away that was excellent. Polly is fully faceted to match any and all of your needs. She will “get” you and create graphics that match you. My needs were more than taken care of.”    Wendy Silvers, Founder of Million Mamas Movement    Client:    Million Mamas Movement, Inc.

 In addition to assisting the Gregory School with master planning and incremental campus upgrades, we were asked to offer modest recommendations for a re-branding effort that had run into difficulties.  First, we suggested that the typeface be sharpened slightly in order to be more expressive of the sharpness and precision and excellence the school expected of its students as well as itself.  Second, we offered the possibility that the logo be expressed 3 dimensionally in all of the school's collateral. While this would require more attention to graphics and printing in the future, it would more powerfully express the school's emphasis on graduating fully-expressed, multi-dimensional students.  Third, we offered a graphic alternative to also address the aspirational nature of the Gregory School program. We hoped to express the way the Gregory School encourages it's students to reach for the sky.  Fourth, to pare down the design to it's essentials, we offered a number of letterhead options utilizing type without further effects.  Our efforts gained traction and support with some factions of the school, but the investment in a more conventional approach was already sufficient to dissuade the Board of Directors from approving our designs.
