We work with a lot of sharp people – artists, business owners, entrepreneurs, social workers – and so many of them have settled for average when it comes to their branding. “Free” business cards and cheap, do-it-yourself websites get the job done, but do they really draw customers in and make you look professional?
Uh, no. Definitely no.
You’ve got potential, but your customers can’t see all of that potential with average design, plain business cards, or a sloppy website. Most people won’t think “Wow, I can’t believe they chose those colors,” or, “Ew, the kerning between those letters is way off!” But subtly, people can sense when a design is less than perfect. It’s the difference between “that’s awesome!” and “that’s nice.” Quit begging for business and show off your products and services with great design!
Successful people and businesses frequently turn to Envoi Design to take their logo and branding from decent to great. Our top-notch professionals bring their expert design talent and more than 100 years of combined experience to transform your identity and provide you with professional, communicative materials. Here are some examples of recent “facelifts” for Envoi Design clients:

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
- Apple “Think Different” commercial, as narrated by Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has just announced the advent of generic top-level domains (gLTDs).
Most of you just said “Say whah????”
Basically, it means that if Envoi Design had enough money, we could purchase the domain extension “.design” and our permanent website address could be “envoi.design” – that’s it. Not “envoidesign.com,” just “envoi.design” and you’re at our web site. Pretty cool, except that it could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars!

Fortunately for you, Envoi Design isn’t NEAR as creepy as the Burger King.
And you can still have it your way.
Envoi Design is your for-real one-stop shop for all things design, branding, and marketing. We’re not just a graphic design company. We’re not just a web development company. We’re not even just a sit-around-and-argue about-pointless-political-topics company. Although that does happen from time to time.
At Envoi Design, you will find solutions to ALL of your business’s visual and virtual communications needs. Whatever part of the process you need help with, whether it’s from start to finish or anywhere in between, we’re excited to help realize your graphic, web, logo, illustration, and branding dreams. And we won’t be creepy about it.
We recently had the chance to work with a new Cincinnati design & photography partnership, TornPaper Studios, who had designed the website they wanted, but needed someone to program it. Enter Envoi Design, and their new creation was live in a week!
So don’t get creeped out if there is a project you’ve been waiting on but haven’t been sure how to proceed. Contact Envoi Design today and get your party started!
One of the exciting projects at Envoi these days is a challenging branding exercise. It’s like the normal logo development process – on crack.
One of our associates is working on an idea to feature several related, well-known brands on a single, themed website. The idea is to provide a fun, one-stop shop that harmonizes different branding – not an easy task, as logos and brands are normally developed in order to make a product stand out from the crowd.
It’s no sweat for Envoi’s talented designers.
Envoi Design’s job is very specific – design a plethora of different logo concepts for the simple purpose of helping to visualize the idea. Steve calls it “ideation.” More than likely, NOTHING resembling ANY of these logo concepts will ever see the light of day. Our client will simply use these design spreads as visual aids when developing and pitching their web site plan to colleagues. Envoi’s illustrators will let their creative design juices flow freely and have fun developing quality logo concepts knowing that they will end up as just that – concepts.
In this case, the “final product” is a PowerPoint presentation full of 25+ logo ideas. The client will use this logo spread as inspiration as they develop the look & feel of their new website.
Organizations large & small know to come to Envoi Design for their logo design needs. For some examples of logos that Envoi has designed from concept to final art, head on over to our Graphic Design Portfolio.
As part of the launch of the new Envoi Design website, we’ve been spending considerable time SEO-ing our own web site. We know that we are the best source of graphic design, illustration, and web design in all of Cincinnati, and we want to make sure that you can find us when you need us.
Did you know:
There is no surefire way to bump your website to the top of the Google search results.
Search results are largely dependent upon time – how long your site has been up, how long Google or other search engines have known about your site, etc.
“Search Engine Optimization” is the process of making it easier for search engines like Google to find and index your website, but it is not a guarantee of any specific pagerank.
SEO helps you prove the relevance of your website to a specific topic, but search engines look at many more criteria, like the popularity of your website and its calculated importance based on, among other things, the amount and quality of links going to and from your site.
Since our new website is only about a week old right now, we currently find ourselves on the top page of results for only a few very specific queries, such as “toy illustration cincinnati” and “graphic and print design over the rhine cincinnati,” on an inconsistent basis. Now that our site has been thoroughly optimized and we’re beginning to intentionally build relevant links around the web (both are things that we can do for YOU as well), we will see our page ranks increase quickly (quickly = anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks in pagerank time) for our desired queries.
So where does YOUR site rank on the web? Let us help you increase your visibility and, consequentially, your profit!
