Small Business Graphic Design

Buy Local

I believe we all need to live locally. Friendships and neighborly relationships begin at farmers' markets, local artisan shops and markets, local restaurants and coffee shops. For anyone feeling isolated or disconnected, living locally is the key.
Another way to think of living locally is networking. By getting to know neighbors, you connect with wonderful potential new clients.
I respect businesses operated with heart, soul, passion and dreams. These organizations truly are the backbone of a community.

Logo and Branding Design

Every great business needs a compelling logo that represents its mission and essence. This requires strategic creative work with styles, colors, fonts, and icons. Together we develop concepts and ideas that bring your brand to life through words and visuals, which may include things like:
  • logo
  • tagline
  • style guide
  • icon library
  • stock photo library
  • custom photo library
  • headlines
  • 30-second introduction (elevator) speech
Once these key elements are place, then it's time to move on to the next steps of your branding development, such as printed materials, website and social media.

Let us help you bring your brand to life. Contact us to learn more about what's possible and how to achieve it.

Your website is your greatest asset. It is your business, in digital form.

  • Reach new potential clients.

  • Provide articles and thought leadership.
  • Book clients.
  • Collect deposits and payments.

Since your website is now acting as one of your business partners, you want to nurture this digital colleague so it can suitably support your operations and efficiency...and ultimately your success. Features you may consider using on your website:

Social Media

Small businesses may rely on some social media to meet and connect with their target audience. Whether publicizing an event, promotion or company news, social media is key. Let us assist you in developing your social media accounts so they perpetuate your vision and mission.

We will set up the cover artwork, logo artwork and any additional static branding that goes with the account. We will connect your website to your social accounts to entice web visitors to engage with your online messaging. And we will create branded templates for posting so that the momentum of your brand is not lost.

If you are looking for a social media manager, we work closely with a partner agency that can assist with these projects. Please feel free to ask for recommendations, even if you're not a Via Maria customer yet!
