Go Big on Old School
Billion dollar international businesses are always looking for a great designer in Cedarburg, Wisconsin… aren’t they?
The age of the Internet is truly amazing.
However, for all of it’s marvels, this client from a few years ago was actually the product of “old school” contacts and referrals. A good friend of mine, Michael Beightol from Coyote Marsh & Associates, contacted me about assisting him with a new opportunity. Years before, we had done some work together on a European firm who wanted to make a splash in the American market. Turns out, his brother (in Washington, DC) had connections to a firm with a similar situation.
Wallah! Madrid meets Wisconsin.
The work we did, from website to marketing kit to trade advertising, still holds up pretty well today. That’s the hallmark of world-class design. It’s also the product of good relationships married to a good client. Never forget to cultivate your personal relationships to build your business… even from unexpected sources!
