Practical & Functional Designs
Gold Leaf Graphic Design & Consulting provides its clients with marketing collateral pieces that make an impression while utilizing practical and functional design. Why practical? Let’s be honest, small business owners have to be smart with their money. We believe design does not have to be complicated, and the process to get you from Point A to Point B shouldn’t be either.
This is why we first do a needs analysis with you, in order to determine exactly what you are looking for. A properly designed piece is not just a pretty item. It has to serve a purpose. That purpose can differ depending on the message you are looking to communicate, but some sort of result must be obtained. There is a fine balance between the aesthetic appeal of a piece and its practical application, and our mandate is to work with you to merry these two items so you get the results you are looking for.
We create practical and functional sales and marketing materials that will help your business connect with your target audience and get results!

Client Project: Select Sprinklers
Select Sprinklers is an irrigation, landscaping, and lighting company and we rebranded their company logo and marketing materials, as well as launched a re-branded website for them. Their site is a great example of our base website package – powerful results in a practical, functional, and mobile ready website.
Client Project: AmberPOS
One of our more advanced projects is showcased in AmberPOS, a Point of Sale and Ecommerce solutions company.

I have used Agata for a range of services for multiple businesses. She has done sign making, photography, graphics, and web work for different projects. Agata has been a real go-to person, with her contacts there is little she cannot do or have done for you, her multitude of talents make her a one stop shop. The one attribute I like most, is that Agata offers suggestions and solutions to make a project better. I would highly recommend Agata and Gold Leaf Graphic Design for virtually any, and all graphic related projects.
