Lori is at the top of the game…Her expertise is broader than just graphic design, she uses strategy and understands the bigger picture of marketing growth and expanding business… I can’t imagine anyone better than Reed Creative for servicing businesses.

My collaboration with Lori spans many years, roles, organizations, and cities, and her strengths remain constant: a fine-tuned design understanding and intuition, an exquisite attention to detail, an incredibly professional attitude, and a passionate dedication. Rod Lemaire, Design Director at Mission Minded, San Francisco
Lori’s design work is always outstanding, but even more important to me is that she is a great collaborator.

You also receive nearly two decades of professional, nationwide experience shared in the form of consultation, research and excellent customer service throughout the life of your project.
We understand the quick pace in today's business world so each job is scheduled to meet your specific deadline.
With a background in major metropolitan areas such as NYC and SF, we are an agile design firm, able to deliver quality work, quickly. (Some clients have even begun to refer to it as “Reed Speed.”) Good work requires good research and a concrete plan to achieve success in a timely manner. We perform that research on your first project, enabling us to provide rapid prototypes? on future projects since we are already intimately familiar with your brand.
We follow a proven 5 step process to ensure success on each job. Basically it flows as follows: Phase 1: Planning (initial meeting > complete creative brief > proposal with estimate, 50% deposit) Phase 2: Concept development (concepting + presentation of viable solutions) Phase 3: Design development (refinement of selected solution + presentation ) Phase 4: Design implementation (revisions + confirming presentation) Phase 5: Production (prepare files for output, coordinate printers/developers for delivery, 50% remainder)
Absolutely! We work with clients across the country, including places as far away as Roatan, Honduras. Meetings are conducted in person when possible, otherwise via email, phone and Skype as needed. Our hours of operation are designed to work with your workday.
As company owner and principal creative, Lori Reed serves as the main point of client contact and creative director for each job.
Reed Creative is a collaborative studio that works with a team of talent on an as needed basis to ensure each job is completed to our high standards, on time, on target and on budget. This talent includes administrative assistant, bookkeeper, designers, and production personnel, as well as hiring professional copywriters, illustrators, photographers, as a project demands. We also have long standing relationships with quality printers and developers across the country. All to better serve our growing client base.
It's highly likely, because over the last two decades, Reed Creative has successfully worked with clients in multiple industries including: food and beverage, hospitality, legal, higher education, insurance, municipalities, industrial, interior design, fitness, maritime, medical finance and entertainment. Regardless of your industry, we perform research to learn the specific challenges your industry faces in order to provide the most appropriate, effective solution for your organization.
For most projects, we obtain a 50% down payment to add the project to our work schedule. Most clients choose to pay by corporate check, but we also can receive payment by credit card. The remaining 50% is due upon completion of the project, prior to releasing the final artwork.
We strongly believe in investing in our community, contributing time and talent in the form of 85 hours pro bono annually. If you are a 501c3 organization with graphic design needs, please contact us by Thanksgiving in order to be considered for adding to the following year’s workload. We take on pro-bono projects that are near and dear to our heart, creatively challenging, and can be completed around our paying client workload.
Testimonials are always available to share with current clients to attest to Lori’s professionalism. Over the years, she has been entrusted as a brand steward for numerous companies, effectively managing design departments, teaching as adjunct faculty, and presiding over volunteers in a non-profit chapter of her professional trade organization. A long standing member of AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts), Reed Creative has followed their guidelines for design business and ethics since 1992 and remains a member in good standing of local Chambers of Commerce. And, for clients requiring it, Reed Creative carries professional liability insurance.
