emailer Template

Do you feel overwhelmed just thinking about designing an Emailer? Then leave it to us! After talking with you to understand your photography and your goals, our designer will build an emailer for you, using your existing branding. We’ll present three rough designs for you to choose from. Then, we’ll go through two rounds of fine-tuning your favorite. When the design is finished, we’ll consult with our photo editors to select up to six of your photographs that best represent your brand. We can even work within MailChimp so there are live text and replaceable images — meaning you can use it over and over again without any hassle.

EMAIL ATTACHMENT

When sending individual emails to clients, it’s good practice to include a well designed attachment showcasing your abilities and latest work. With more people than ever working remotely, the email attachment now does what the postcard used to do. Our designers will work with you to create an impactful attachment that you can implement in your marketing efforts.


web template customization

Technology just keeps improving, and it’s also getting easier to use. With so many great website template options at our fingertips, it’s hard to justify the cost of a custom website. But, in order to stand out from the crowd, you’ll need to customize your web template to make it uniquely yours. Our designers can help you select a template that suits you best, then help you make the most of the layout, organization, navigation, and design options available.

pdf portfolio

Whether you’re social distancing or you’re in Seattle, and your dream client is in Paris — it’s a tragic tale. But when you can’t meet with a client in person, sending them a PDF portfolio is the next best thing. Unlike your website, a PDF portfolio can show a custom edit that speaks to the needs of a specific client or type of client. We will work with you to create a single or multipage layout that shows off your skills and style in a fresh and engaging way. Not sure what images to use? We can also collaborate with our photo editors to make your PDF targeted, cohesive and memorable.


print promo

There’s nothing quite like holding a printed photograph or cool promo in your hand! Print promos are a unique and versatile way of getting your name out there. After talking with you to understand your work and your goals, we will present three rough designs for you to choose from. Then, we’ll go through two rounds of fine-tuning of your favorite. When the design is finished, we’ll confer with our photo editors to select up to six of your photographs that best represent your brand. We’ll then deliver the final files; we’ll also help you find the best places to print them.

Big projects will need more than just an estimate; you’ll need a lot more than that to get the job. That’s where treatments come in — it combines a mini-portfolio along with details about your production team, facilities, experience, and approach in a way that will show off your capabilities, professionalism, and interest. We can work with you to create a custom treatment. We’ll even set you up with a template that you can customize for future projects. We can also draw on the expertise of our photo editors, producers, and publicists, so you have the most sophisticated image selection, pricing, and copywriting available.
