[JOIN] OUR CREATIVE COLLABORATIVE

Lori’s design work is always outstanding, but even more important to me is that she is a great collaborator. We kick off our projects with a technical consult and production brainstorming well in advance of the deadlines. I would highly recommend Lori. It’s a gift to work with creative talent that gets the mechanical side of production.

Kim Price, National Account Business Development

Earthcolor Inc.

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

Mission Minded, San Francisco

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.

Tom Foutz, President and Co-founder

ADR inc., New Orleans

Each project is designed to meet our clients’ individual needs and have included components such as: corporate collateral, identity and brand development, stationery, style guides, annual reports, marketing and sales materials, brochures, direct mail, product packaging, signage, publications, website design, print and digital advertising, exhibition and event materials, invitations, speaking and software training

How long will my project take?

We understand the quick pace in today's business world so each job is scheduled to meet your specific deadline.

Can we still work together if we live in different states?

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.

Who will I work with from your company?

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.

Have you done any work in our industry?

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.

How do you accept payment?

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.

Do you take on pro-bono design work?

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.

How do I know I can trust you with our brand and its confidential nature pre-launch?

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.
