This is a story about a business called Purple Rose Graphics. This amazing little business was created by Patrice in the sweaty summer months of 2011 and shares an anniversary date with “National Slurpee Day” (I kid you not, it’s seriously the best holiday that’s not a holiday.)
Purple Rose Graphics is a small one-woman graphic design business in Orange County, CA that helps small established businesses and non-profits look their best so they can sell more. I do this by working side by side with amazing people (like you) to create one of a kind logos, business cards, brochures, flyers, postcards, rack cards or other marketing materials that help businesses like yours get customers through the door, allowing you to look better scale quickly and stress less.
I grew up in Rowland Heights before moving out to Placentia over a decade ago. Although I received my degree in public relations from Cal Poly Pomona, I found that I also had an undying love of art and design, whether it was drawing or creating projects in Adobe programs. With this love, the concept of Purple Rose Graphics was born in 2011.
As a graphic designer in Orange County, I understand the needs of other businesses in the area when it comes to graphic design. When I founded Purple Rose Graphics, the goal was to maintain a personal approach to creating everything that my customers needed from an artistic perspective, whether it was logo designs, brochures, flyers, or even invitations to events.
With my background in public relations, I understand that every business and client that takes the time to sit down and meet with Purple Rose Graphics is unique and has its own voice, with their own specific needs and desires. Each business that comes to me is at its own stage with its own unique challenges. Therefore, there are no templates or catalogs that I use in my approach; each person receives designs that are custom made to their specifications.
I take a hands-on mentality with my business, working alongside people and listening intently to their concerns as they move forward in this process. The pieces that I create reflect who my clients are from an artistic perspective. The clients I work with are well established independent businesses in need of the perfect brochure or marketing material or businesses that are rebranding themselves as they begin their next chapter in the marketplace, each design is tailored to fit their viewpoint.
WHAT I CREATE
The goal of Purple Rose Graphics is to make sure that the design process is as painless as possible for the clients. Rather than meet in my own studio, I will often meet with my clients over coffee or via video chat, making sure that the client comes first in any project I take on.
After an initial consultation with me, a flat rate is often agreed upon and paid for up front. This allows for my time to be reserved immediately for my client so I can focus on designing the project, and allows for no surprises for them at the end of the process in the form of a giant invoice to pay.
Included in the flat price are several rounds of drafts. After I design your product, you will be sent a proof or a design concept that you will be able to instruct changes for. By reviewing this before final production, you are making sure that the designs are to all of your specifications, all spellings and text are correct and that you are satisfied with what you and I have created together.
Once you approve the design, there are several options in moving forward:
- I work frequently with local printers to make sure that the designs I create are printed with the highest quality possible. Whether it’s strong card stock for business cards or the right gloss for a postcard, I work with these printers to make sure that your design is featured on the right platform. Afterward, I can either hand deliver it, or it is shipped to you directly.
- I can also send the design to you in an appropriate computer format to take to your own selected printer and used accordingly for your business purposes.
