Jonathan will describe his philosophy of always being ahead of the game to enhance your production workflow, achieving more consistency  within your documents while building those documents more efficiently.

He’ll perform a few fascinating feats of magic and production — presti-design-itation. Mystery, laughs and inspiration await!

To name just a few...

"I feel like you've given me years of my life back!"

Is Your Brand Important to You?

If the answer is "yes", then we need to talk.

Let's face it, your brand is everything. You've put time and money into building your brand. Your brand is spread through your marketing materials and products — this is where most companies falter when showing off their brand. Valuable time and money is wasted in the production process of your print and digital collateral and products, all while lessening your brand.

Increase Productivity. Connect With Your Customer.

Impactful design raises the emotional reaction in your audience. This emotion creates a connection between your customers and you. This emotion helps to create a lasting memory of your business for your customer.

Impactful design must be followed with attentive and responsive production of your materials. Neglectful production can create a negative response and sever the connection between you and your customer — lessening your brand. Quite simply, ignoring the details within your production process communicates to your customer that you simply don't care.

"But, our designers are top notch."

Yes, they are. You have a fantastic team. However, great design may begin with a beautiful aesthetic, but it must be followed through with strong production in your templates and documents.

Templates and documents that are poorly made (and most are) don't allow your production team to adhere to the design rules that have been established within your brand. They are built inefficiently, causing your team to waste countless hours editing existing documents and creating new documents.

I will save you time and money.

I will build your templates faster and more efficiently allowing you to design and produce your materials more effectively down the road and save you time and money.

The perfect templates and documents are not only about how they look, it is about how they are built. They should fully harness the power of Adobe InDesign and your other tools within your workflow, such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, to maximize your time and efficiency and minimize your expense.

I am an efficiency expert. I know how to create documents and templates that will enable you to get your job done in minutes instead of days.

I will do an assessment of your project and will create a document or template that targets your specific needs. This can be followed up with customized training for your team to help them achieve the maximum benefit from working within these documents.
