it all begins with a seed.

Whether the seed is a seed, or a great idea, the process is the same. Learn about it. Prepare it. Plant it. Nurture it. Support it. And watch it grow. The results matter. Marketing communications and design is the beginning of a complex array of impressions and calls to action, words and visuals that will make your audience sit up and take action. All growing out of a cohesive, dynamic brand. 

cultivating visuals.

At lynngdesigns, we specialize in the design, development and production of highly effective visual communications. We take a flexible, customized approach to every project. Our previous experience grounds us. We then gather as much information as we can about your audiences and their perceptions, as well as your goals and vision. We strive to be current and aware, integrating some of the latest media innovations to reach prospects on as many levels as possible. Our powerful graphics and messaging can communicate your brand in print, online, onsite and onscreen. We know how to bring all the elements together to create a unified, targeted marketing program. And we believe in tracking results and continually building on past successes. 

We also believe in cultivating client relationships. By providing consistency and innovation, we work as members of your team, bringing both an insider’s and an outsider’s perspective to the table. Our clients tend to come back to again and again because we take the time to understand their particular challenges and add value to their messages beyond surface visuals.

Lynn is also a lifelong gardener. She grows lettuce, kale, okra, beans, sugar snap peas and, of course, tomatoes in her Gurnee garden, along with a full complement of flowers, shrubs and trees. She has learned over the years exactly which plants need more sun, when to water (and when to not), and how to prepare the soil for each season’s new crops. She knows how to bring out the best in each variety by giving each of them individualized attention.
