A Business To Business Specialist I’m in business to help your business. Here at Blackwatch Creative Services, the focus is always on you, the customer, to provide services you need at a price you can afford. We’re all in this together, aren’t we? For the sake of simplicity, I charge $40 per hour for services. I offer a retainer discount of $50 if you would like to retain services for blocks of 10 hours. So basically for only $350 I am at your disposal. Doesn’t matter if you need a flyer or a website. I’ll keep a close watch on the time used and when we start getting close to using up the retainer, I’ll let you know and we can replenish the time-bank, switch to hourly, whatever you need. Call or write today - let’s discuss the services you need for your business because if you don’t get it out there, no one will know.

Good Design Is No Accident. Bad Design Looks Like One. When you design for print, there are some simple thematic rules and elements that every page should subscribe to. There has to be balance - color balance, design element balance (pictures & graphics), text balance, and even a balance of white space. There has to be continuity between these elements, and there has to be a message worth reading about. Like everything else, rules are of course meant to be broken. But if you go the broken rule route, there still better be some continuity - a method to your madness. Otherwise you come off as an amateur and potential customers will turn elsewhere. Blackwatch Creative Services has been designing for print for over 25 years, following the rules and breaking a few along the way. We may have even written a few originals. Design awards have been won, customers have been happy. These print rules also apply to web pages. Balance - easy on the eyes. Lead the reader (or visitor) where you want them to go - right to your message. Are these rules you need to know? Maybe. But why bother when you have so much on your plate already? You have a business to run and your own set of rules to follow. These rules are my specialty.

If Good Writing Needs To Happen, Contact A Good Writer It’s amazing to me the way words work. Sometimes they can provoke, sometimes amaze. It’s a gathering of information, formed inwardly, neatly arranged, considered and reconsidered, then wham-o! Delivered outward in such a way as to stir the reader to action! Sometimes people need help with writing. I’ve met intelligent, successful business people who are full of great ideas, yet can’t put two words together in a sentence on paper. That’s ok. It doesn’t make them less intelligent, just writing-challenged. No biggie. That’s where a good copywriter comes in. It’s also amazing to me the way marketing works. What makes your product better than your competitor’s? Why should people choose your service over someone else’s? How can you generate more sales now to meet sales goals? The art of marketing is so fine, just one well-placed perfect word can make the difference between good sales and skyrocketing sales. Think of it this way: People can just read your copy, or they can act on it. People can just look at your ad in the paper, or they can act on it. People can just visit your website, or they can act on what’s there. What kind of words work for you? Words that provoke, convey, pitch, inform, are humorous, incite action - these are the kinds of words any business needs.
