So happy to recommend Amber and Dowitcher Designs for any situation they go after. Just take a look at the Women’s Festival website and you’ll see some of her capabilities.

Dowitcher did a fabulous job redesigning the brochures for our nonprofit organization. The new design uses a well-balanced mix of photographs and text to highlight the people in our organization and our mission. The vibrant colors and strong graphic design of the new brochure better reflects our organization and helps our recruitment of new members. Michelle La

Ephemeral Social Trends

Instagram released Stories on August 2 and at first glance it is exactly like Snapchat’s Stories. It lets users post photos and video throughout the day and at the end of that day, the images disappear. To be honest, it looked the same as Snapchat at second and third glance, too.
