Working Design has a long history of providing expertise on a variety of communication design services.

Identity and rebranding

Whether it’s a new logo or a new look for all of your organization’s communications tools, we have years of experience putting all the elements together into an effective and modern package. Read about how we design your logo.

Web design and development

Our focus is on your overall online presence. The core of that is a website supported by other forms of online publishing including social media. We build elegant, user-friendly and affordable sites. Using open source, community-supported applications, we get you up and running so you can manage and add content to your site when you need to. Here’s our tip sheet on how we design and develop your site.

Publication design and production

Our award-winning original publication designs for major BC unions are just one reason clients look to us when they need innovative approaches for publication designs. Our projects include:

    • magazines and newsletters
    • brochures
    • posters
    • ads and other print collateral.

Communications planning, consultation and writing

We look at the big picture. We help:

    • identify your target audiences
    • develop key messages aimed at reaching them and meeting your goals
    • structure your content
    • determine the best array of communications tools
    • write ad content, campaign slogans, headlines and more

Publication design seminars

Our Powerpoint presentation, Page By Page: How to do design, features a hundred slides covering all aspects of designing a print publication. Working Design principal, Kris Klaasen, delivers three versions of the seminar:

    • a day-long workshop,
    • a half-day presentation or
    • a 90-minute version

Communications audit

We review your communications strategy and your array of communications materials individually and in relation to each other. Does your strategy effectively support your marketing goals and your organization’s purpose and mission? We’ll identify any gaps and offer suggestions on how to fill them.

Website audit

We review all aspects of your site from content assessment to Search Engine Optimization. Using web analytics we’ll see how your site is being used – or not. We’ll identify areas that could be improved, added or deleted.

Publications audit

We provide a thorough review of your newsletter, newspaper or magazine and related print materials. Using a 50-point questionnaire we analyse all parts of your publications from design to content.

Books, book covers, report and manual design and production

From the cover through to the insides, we handle long projects with creative design and superior project management.
