About:

Activate45 Design is a small design firm working in the suburbs of Greensboro, North Carolina for the last 13 years. I spent a number of my career years at 3 ad agencies and 1 interactive design firm—gaining experience, learning and participating in a wide range of different, big & small, advertising and design projects. In my own design shop, we work in close partnership with companies, institutions and non-profits, to develop the very best, unique and impactful marketing materials possible—that can help our clients attract and reach out to their customers.

Creative process:

We’re big believers in client & designer collaboration, which can help us get a better understanding of project goals and who the targeted customers are. The design process starts with rough concept boards, with back & forth client discussions, for their direction and input. We problem-solve projects ahead of moving to the computer, so that we can consider more, better ideas, early on. The best ideas are chosen, modified, finessed and then, computer-built. Clients work with us during the whole creative process. Our aim is to create together, strong & compelling marketing materials that can help our clients be best equipped in reaching their marketing goals.
