As an "entrepreneur before artist," I'm an MBA with a background in communications, and I got my start in design amid the staggering opportunity of the late 1990s. I opened my own studio in January 2001 and have been an independent designer since. My clients put into my hands the most magical aspects of their companies—brands are our companies' self-image; marketing is our hope for the future. It's my privilege to breathe life and enthusiasm into these exciting, dynamic aspects of organizations. Crafting a Crisp Point is an act of creation, joy, and discovery.
Design is also wonderful fun! My efforts celebrate what people love most about you; of course I love doing this! You also will find yourself smiling through the process. Sometimes it should surprise you. Sometimes it may daunt you. That's why I'll like working with you most if you're confident enough to let your organization shine brighter than your competition. I believe you've got to take a stand if you're going to stand out.
Aside from the decades of work and training in graphics, communications, art, marketing, and business, this is what makes me a great designer: I'm not afraid to stand out. Let's have some fun building your future!
We give our clients intellectual property rights in whatever we create for you. This is rare in design; the standard with design companies is to charge you to create the work and then to charge you again to get rights to use it again or get the files.
Because we give you rights to your art, you are free to re-use and re-publish the art as you see fit. We won't come after you for royalties.
We know your company's visual identity is a critical part of your success. When you hire us, we'll celebrate your success with you rather than asking you to pay us extra for it. (Also, we're pretty sure we'll make the celebration party more fun!)
There's a good reason the list of services above only has four items in it: People absorb information best when it's bite-sized. But don't feel limited, because we're not a four-trick shop any more than we are a one-trick shop! If you need support in another area, chances are good we can help you or connect you to someone who can.
Most of our clients come to us for design first (because we're great at it), but Vail's experience is far more broad and varied than we sometimes let on. She's written extensive marketing plans for growing organizations. She's presented at trade shows and events to be a public face and eloquent voice to represent clients. She's gone on press checks and has in-depth understanding of the different types of printing presses, inks, coatings—everything you need for best results. And she knows the essence of SEO and social media. So as a nerd, a social representative, or an expert in a quirky subject, she's got the knowledge and experience to weigh in for your team.
