Marketing, Advertising and Design are all very important elements of your business — both the bottom line and the established identity. It’s important to approach them all with professionalism and thought.

That’s where we come in.

Of course you know a lot about your business and your customers but remember — when you work with us you invite fresh eyes and new ideas. We will help you develop a professional foundation for something new or freshening up what’s been around for a while. Working with us will save you time and money – you don’t have to crawl through the learning curves of Adobe Creative Suite, WordPress, MailChimp or Social Media Platforms. You could be earning way more money than what you will pay us, doing what you do best rather than trying to learn the things we can do for you.

We will help you develop consistency in your brand and develop material you will take pride in. Good planning and design will increase your conversion rates. Content with graphics gets over 90% more views than text-only content. 74% of people who use social media use it to make purchasing decisions and 84% of social media users follow their favourite brands.


TESTIMONIAL: Jim Norwood, Norwood & Associates

We have had the pleasure of working with Alison to provide print services to Bright Ideas over the past year. We receive a myriad of print requirements that always arrive well-organized and in a ready-to-print format with no set up issues, making our life so much easier. Alison does an extensive cross section of promotional print and creates products that are fun, effective, timely and eye-catching. Working with Alison is a treat — She is a no-nonsense, get-the-job-done businesswoman and I wish I had more clients like her. If you are looking for a professional, bright, talented graphic artist to do your promotion, look no further.


Maybe you have it all figured out and you just need a little help with the execution – remember, an important lesson in business is to use the skills you’re good at for the things those skills accomplish. We’re good at advertising and marketing and content development. Instead of getting angry with your computer, and investing hours of your time trying to get your logo to fit properly in your social profile boxes, finishing a presentation that will generate new business, or getting your web template to do what you’re yelling at it to do… reach out. Those are the kinds of things we’re good at.

Even if you don’t have it all figured out, we are idea people. Think of what you’d like to do; re-vamp your look, increase your Facebook followers, get more people through the door, organize an event everyone is going to talk about — and we’ll get excited with you. We’ll also make sure your business is represented in a creative, meaningful way.
