Staying up-to-date with the world of design is critical. Retro is fabulous when retro is your look, but accidental retro (because you’re exceptionally outdated) is inadequate to meet the expectations of your clients. Design continually changes, new concepts emerge, and old concepts return repolished. We don’t want you to ride a design trend that fades into obscurity and we don’t want you to become irrelevant by never adapting; we aim to place you in a position where your designs will be current, relevant, and suit both you and your customers. Graphic Design is our craft. We would love to use it to enable you to stand out in yours.
Branding is like an invisible string that connects every separate aspect of your business. It allows you to grow and morph, to use different designs, but still paradoxically remain the same.
We recommend starting here. Before you advertise, before you build a website, before you produce anything, have a logo. When you are 12 steps into your endeavor, we want you to…
We consume printed products regularly. We skim flyers pinned to community boards while we wait for our morning coffee, we offer business cards to new acquaintances randomly…
Writer’s block is a real thing. Often, you may want to create a print piece, but when you go to write out your services or mission statement, you draw a blank. For some of our clients, they…
We eat with our eyes first. We decide to read a book based on its cover. We discover attraction based on appearance. What is visual makes an impact. Your visual resources make an impact. Why not leverage them in your favor? Create a beautiful brand that is uniquely you and consistent across print and web design. We want to pair your vision with our creativity and empower you to stand out and look great doing it.
Below you will find a wide variety of graphic design services we offer to help your business tell its story.
One of the cornerstones of any business is a business card. Even in the digital age, there’s no denying that almost every business, company, or individual still benefits from having some of these little buggers in their back pocket. But if a business card is your first intro to someone, or the lasting impression that they take home, why not kick it up a notch and make your business cards stand out? Instead of square corners, why not try rounded? Instead of a rectangle, maybe use a square. Instead of a thin business card, why not a thick one? Throw a beautiful finish on it…make the edges your primary brand color, die-cut it, etc. The point is: You don’t need to settle for something that is just basic. You can make it as much “you” as you want and stand out from your competition while you’re at it.
Typically, we will handle your business card design at no cost when you pair it with our other services, such as our graphic design or website design packages. We can even handle the printing and shipping for you, with very competitive and fair pricing. Check out some of our many business card designs!
One of the best ways to help your marketing is to be consistent. Consistency helps build trust with your customers because they know what they are going to get when they do business with you. At Creative 7 Designs, we help you look at the details that help your brand stand out and build trust. One aspect is the company’s letterhead. We understand that for some, most of their communication is digital, but for official documentation or special correspondents, you want an appealing, refined, and clean letterhead. We would love to get started on a letterhead that pulls in your logo and branding, making this simple piece uniquely you. Pair this with our business card services and envelope design so that all of these print pieces build the consistency and trust that you need. See some examples of our letterhead design in our portfolio!
Not everyone sends out mail. Not everyone needs to seal up documents before their handoff. But when you do, why not do it with envelopes fitting your brand? Custom designed envelopes add polish to your business, they help you stand out in a stack of junk mail, and they even improve your open rates. Use your envelopes as ad space, as a call to action, or just a reminder that your company cares about the little things, too. We offer a wide range of color and layout options and would love to start some branded envelopes for you today! Grab some savings by pairing envelope design with our business card and letterhead designs. We can even handle the print and shipping for you! Check out some of our recent envelope design work!

In marketing, there is an art to the leave-behind. Sometimes a business card, occasionally a flyer, most often a brochure. Packed full of information but presented in a way that isn’t overwhelming, the entire purpose of a brochure is to pique interest and grow traffic, whether foot, online or phone. We design with this in mind because we care about your success and want your clientele to get more of you. We can lay-out brochures for bi-folds, tri-folds, gate-folds, quad-folds, and any fold in between. We are happy to package your design with printing, shipping, and even content writing, making this a no-brainer for the marketer who wants to perfect the art of their leave-behind.

Are you writing the next great American Novel? Ok, maybe not; but if you are writing about your passion project or anything else, we can help you with the layout and cover design. Regardless of the famous saying, most people do judge a book by its cover, and book sales go hand in hand with cover design.

That’s why we combine our creative minds to come up with a layout and design that you love, that stands out on a shelf, and that won’t leave your book overlooked.

What does throwing a block party, advertising an addition to the community, or requesting privacy have in common? That’s right; they can all benefit from utilizing door hangers.

Let them get hung up on you, start the conversation today.
We approach layout design in our own unique way. We look at each piece individually and try to get in the head of your intended reader. What would be the best way to read this if we were in their shoes? So it doesn’t matter if its a magazine, newspaper, catalog, one sheet, price sheet, trade show pamphlet, coupon book, brochure, restaurant menu or any other option, we will treat each one differently. We also price uniquely. We look at the complexity, turn around time, and design needed instead of just the page number. What can we say, we think outside the box. Reach us to get your Layout Project started!
How do you go the extra mile with your clients? Do you remember their birthday or say Merry Christmas? Do you offer special promotions or remind them to keep their accounts up to date?

Why no leverage this paradox to your advantage and make a good impression with a postcard? We would love to help you create a visually engaging design and make your mark in the mail. We can run addresses directly onto postcards or put them up with EDDM (Every Door Direct Mail). Perfectly sized for marketing handouts, postcards can even be designed to skip the mailbox entirely.

When you have a more extensive website, we sometimes need to figure out the organization and flow of your site before we “break ground,” so to speak. We use wireframes, layouts, workflows, sitemaps, etc. to make sure you have the best user interface possible. Often, before beginning a project, our clients want a “demo” of how the site will look.
We present them with one to two pages of design partnered with a website flow chart/sitemap to give an idea of the design and flow we are considering for the website. We then can go back and forth on any general changes desired before we start the actual website design and development. Contact us if you are interested in a mock-up or sitemap for your website design or redesign.
When you have a powerful message, powerful graphics go a long way to help you tell your story. That’s what we can do for you. It may be as simple as talking about your business and what you do. It could be as complicated as presenting an entertaining yet informative TED talk. We can back you up by creating a Powerpoint or Keynote presentation that will enhance what you have to say and add visually engaging pieces such as interactive graphs, statistics, and imagery to sell or better communicate your point. Don’t let your crowd fall asleep on you, keep them engaged.
