The bad news is that I’ve been a bit of a slacker on posting to my blog, but the good news is that I have been very busy. (Always good news for me, never good news for clients that want to get on my schedule.) But there are a couple things I’d like to mention today.
New Designers Added
Holly Reed of Sakka Studio
First of all, I’ve added a couple of links to the list of Utah Graphic Designers that are of note:
Wade Shearer of Anavi Design
Sakka Studio is a full service design company offering custom design, marketing and photography since 1996*. And like most of our customers, Sakka is a small business.
We don’t have rows of cubicles with hundreds of designers cranking out logos for clients they’ve never met. We don’t have online ordering for our services and we don’t have a call center.
What we do have is a collective of talented and dedicated people with that enjoy helping companies grow revenue, build stronger brands and improve communication with their market.
Anavi Design is a creative boutique specializing in developing visual solutions for the modern market. We believe that a brand is not complete until it covers everything from the waste basket in your lobby to the fabric on the bench in your trade show booth. Combining concept, strategy, creative structure and the ability to provide both technology and aesthetic, we prepare clients with powerful tools to communicate and sell themselves graphically. Our goal is to make you look good; to make you unforgettable. We wake up each morning to make the world a more beautiful place.
The Utah Graphic Artists Forum Launched
I received an email from Wade (mentioned above) telling me about the new Utah Graphic Artist Forum that was recently launched. Here’s an exerpt from the email: (I figured I couldn’t say it much better):
Now officially launched, I present a gathering place for local graphic artists. My purpose is to promote and support the development and expression of graphic arts and to facilitating and ecouraging conversations and interaction between graphic artists in Utah, in an environment free of dues or obligations. I hope to provide something of value to members involved in all forms of the graphic arts, including illustrators, photographers, graphic designers, typographers, user interface designers, and web developers.
Both working professionals and students are welcome and encouraged to participate, discussing current events and trends, historical topics, theory, techniques, technology, business, and/or employment.
Features include a forum, mailing lists, an IRC channel for chat, job announcements, RSS feeds, syndicated calendar events, and plans to meet periodically for socials and workshops. Membership is free and open to anyone interested.
Visit, participate in and support this worthy effort of uniting us creative professionals here in Utah. It looks like it already has over 40 members, and will continue to grow.
