We don't do clichés

Our Influential creative approach is driven by the communications objectives of each client, the audience we're addressing and the competitive marketing environment.

We think it through new each time. Every piece we create is a custom job. Every client deserves a fresh approach.

If you look at our portfolio of work, you'll find very few pieces that look alike.

You won't find us following the latest trendy design because by the time it's a "trend" nobody's paying attention to it anymore.

Fresh creative breaks through the clutter.

However we don't do new without a purpose.

YMCA Brochure

Because to be effective, we strongly feel your message and its delivery must be appropriate.

As our Creative Director Lou Milo likes to say, "We don't decorate. We communicate."

Two golf brochures shown here are good examples of our original approach. Each was developed to answer very different marketing objectives.

Neither looks at all like the other. Neither looks much like other golf tournament brochures.

The Chamber brochure primarily targets contributors and donors, rather than attracting golfers. The tournament sells out early, easily attracting a full slate of players, but has unlimited capacity for donations.

For the YMCA, we reminded golfers why they're playing. This brochure looks more like a camp brochure than a golf brochure. Hey, they already want to play golf. We convinced them they wanted to play for the kids at the YMCA.

Influential Communications produced the pieces pro bono.
