If it can be conceived, it can be achieved. Whether the need is for a complete graphic identity or a simple direct mail piece, our seasoned staff at Downs & Associates are equipped to create just the right imagery. Design is the fun part of the business. No matter what media we’re working in, print, web, video, or traditional stage building, it all starts with a vision.
We began over 20 years ago as an offset printing broker. As a matter of fact, the “Associates” part of Downs were the various printers that worked with us in those early days. Over the years, we have evolved into a much more diverse service center, but our roots still have a strong knowledge in the printing industry.
Traditional, web, silk screen, and digital printing are the venue for today’s market and we handle it all. We match the print project to the vendor(s) that are best equipped to produce it. Many considerations are made before awarding a bid to a vendor. How well matched the job is to the equipment, production time, customer service reliability and of course cost are all important to the decision making process.
The future is here and it’s all just a click away. Website construction, splash pages, hot links, shopping carts, buttons, skyscraper and banner ads are all part of the exciting world of e-marketing. Whatever you need in this fast paced high tech medium, it’s made easy through Downs & Associates.
Everybody at the race track says their horse is the fastest, not true. Building a balanced, well planned media strategy is key to the success of any ad campaign. We take into consideration your specific demographic and psychographics and run the numbers. You know before any money is spent who, what, when and how much. Not only do we build the flight schedules in the right media that makes sense for you, but we also can ensure that the points promised are realized. You should get what you pay for.
Lights. Camera. Action. Video and radio productions are an exciting part of any advertising portfolio. Finding the right talent and marrying it with the perfect creative is just part of the production process. Whether the production calls for a simple in-house TV spot or a full blown multi-day on location shoot Downs will coordinate the professional teams to make it happen.
Large Format Printing
One of the in-house services we offer our clients is the ability to digitally print large format displays and banners up to 44 in. x 15 ft. The quality is photographic and the media is diverse. Prints can be mounted on various substrates such as foam core or ultra board. Epson ultrabright inks are used and can be used for either interior or exterior displays.
This is a favorite for our creative team. Many companies need help creating dynamic presentations for sales or development meetings. Using still pictures, charts, video clips and sound bites, we can work with you to combine the elements into interactive CD ROMs, DVDs or Powerpoint presentations.
