Wade Creative provided a visual boost for our new product!  With the great design for promoting and packaging Sound pOp, we were able to go beyond what we expected for sales.  And after a couple of years on the market were able to sell the brand altogether.Working with Wade Creative has helped position all of our products in the best retail space.

Rick, you continue to amaze me with your work. I can't be happier with the logo you designed for me and the marketing pieces you've created. Your work has helped me focus on my strengths and it has inspired me to be the very best sales trainer in the Pacific Northwest!

I moved my business up to Portland, OR. from California in 1994 not knowing a soul. I found Wade Graphic  Design from a display of business cards at a quick print place. I called him up to have our business cards created, and after meeting Rick and seeing what he could do, I began to give him packaging projects for our product. Soon, Wade Graphic Design was doing all of our packaging, literally hundreds of items a year. From 1994 to 2000 my company grew by 300%.  From 2000 to 2010, we grew by 130%. Rick Wade played an integral part in our success thanks to very creative and cutting edge graphics for an industry that was previously very boring. We have never looked back since.

Road Signs

Not many people notice the simple design of road signs, but there are good reasons for that.  Great design is something that tells you where you need to go in a quick, and easy to understand way.  If you are traveling at 65 you really don’t have time to contemplate how lovely the green of the exit sign is. All good graphic design should function in this way. You want to create a simple, quick, and easy to understand message to tell your potential customer what you are selling and how to buy it. This all needs to happen just as fast as a road sign. Good design does not Read more

Zero Waste

When I first started pulling together information about zero waste and planet friendly packaging I thought I was going to get really mad. Everyone hears about how the world is filling with plastic and blobs of garbage are floating around our oceans.  But, there are really great things happening in the world of design and packaging! I get a lot of customers asking for recycled packaging and products.  I see clients working hard to source material that is earth friendly.  It is getting easier and less expensive to do good things for the planet.  Big companies are listening to you, the consumer, and trying to create Zero-Waste products. Companies like Read more

Logo Placement

Where do your customers see your business logo? There are always business cards, websites and the plaque on your desk.  But, where SHOULD your logo be seen?  Your business should be in front of your potential customers!  Find out what your customers are reading, where they are going, who they are talking to.  Then put your logo and message where they can’t miss it. You don’t need to brake the bank or take out a loan to advertise.  Magazine ads can be expensive, but local newsletters are a bargain.  Posters at your local coffee shop can inspire a phone call.  Social media give-always can start a great conversation.

What are you referring to?

Let’s not beat around the bush… you want to sell your product or service and so do I.  The best clients and customers you get are from referrals.  You trust your friends and what they think about products and services.  Every survey I have ever taken has that one question;  Would you recommend us to your friends. Your referrals are very powerful, so don’t give them out lightly.  A “like” or “Retweet” on social media, although very nice, is not a referral.  When you go out of your way to bring up something you like about a product or person to a friend… that is a referral.  With the online Read more

Be a Visual Success

Confidence is key… But looking good helps! Do you want to be the best organic vegan cheese maker… then you should LOOK like it. When someone asks you for a business card, are you reluctant to hand one out?  Don’t let bad visuals hurt your business!  Get the most bad-ass cards you can.  Because you want to be a success, so you should look like one. Every business has phases they go through.  The best way to grow through those phases, is to be aware of your changing business.  Stand back and look at the image you provide for you customer.  For example: If you are embarrassed or uncomfortable by Read more
