Project Brief

A detailed and thoughtful design brief will lead to a successful end product — whether it’s a logo, brochure or entire branding campaign.

The Challenge

Being able to answer:
Who are you and what do you do? – What is the scope of the project? – Who is your audience or target market? – Who is your competition? – What tone or image do you need to portray? – What is your ultimate goal and how will you measure it? – What’s your budget? – How should approvals and presentation of concepts be handled? – What previous design and marketing materials have you used? – Are there other people responsible for other pieces of this project?

Skills Needed

Graphic Design is the core of your business or organizational image. As an illustration, it says what and who you are, what you do, and most importantly, it sets you aside from the easily forgotten cookie-cutter graphics. It’s the most recognizable part of your brand. It’s part of what makes up your “Avatar.” It’s an icon that sticks in the public mind. Try thinking of the Nike Shoe or Ford Automobile without seeing their logo… which is their icon. Your image is everything and everything is your image if it sticks in the public’s mind. Graphic Design = Shape = Icon = Branding = YOU!

We’re not saying you can’t do this yourself. However, taking on the time consuming process of producing quality podcasts has a huge learning curve. Quality podcast production requires experience with audio production equipment, mixing, editing and finally syndication.  If you want high quality results from your podcast, you’ll need high quality ingredients to start with. Other than experience, you’ll need the proper equipment and editing software. From there you’ll need to understand the syndication aspects from RSS feeds to Content Delivery Networks or CDN’s.

Arlee, through his Company Blurbidea, designed a website for our small law firm and we are more than happy. He not only has great technical skill but also has serious marketing knowledge and he has assisted us greatly in both areas. I would recommend him highly.

Chuck Ormond, Ormond Dunn Law Firm

Arlee has done an excellent job of taking my vision and creating a reality that has exceeded my expectations. His talent goes far beyond the norm. When you are able to have a professional that understands the real estate business and knows what it takes to be successful, the outcome is pure brilliance. Thank you for being a mentor and challenging me to be better than I ever thought I had the ability to be!

R. Lee “Arlee” is very knowledgeable; he keeps up with all the latest trends. He has a lot of imagination, and the quality of his work is first rate.

Arlee approached me in June of 2008 regarding the sale of family owned beach property in North Carolina. He had a sales concept that I had never heard of….. video sales presentation! I hired him to produce the video of my families property and was ecstatic with the finished product. The sales agent I had a listing agreement with didn’t pan out and I signed on with Russ. He guided me through the detailed paperwork, explaining in common sense language exactly what I needed to know about our agreement. With his expertise and commitment to solid business practices, we collaborated on a Eastern US marketing campaign of my family property. It was a fabulous experience from to start to finish. I wouldn’t hesitate a second to hire him again to consult with me. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a Real Estate Consultant/Video Producer. His work is excellent!

When Ambient Media first launched onto the scene we called on Arlee to design our website. His knowledge and experience allowed us to move quick and meet our deadline. We were thrilled to find someone who wanted to understand our business and presented the best ideas. The final product far exceeded our expectations. If you need a creative web designer that you can trust from concept to final product look no more… Arlee is your man.

As I am learning Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop he has been an amazing and patient teacher.  I can tell you I am not the best student. He is knowledgeable and highly skilled at website designing, all Adobe products.

Arlee is an excellent website designer and marketer.

We used Arlee for all kinds of tech help at my last job for the last two years and he was amazingly helpful. He would create YouTube videos to help our staff & clients understand how to use new applications. He was always there for us!

Arlee is and always has been an outstanding resource for our business.  Intelligent, savvy and very creative. He can handle a vast array of assignments and he is available 24/7 long before 24/7 was vogue.
