Our Creative Capabilities
Looking forward into 2021, there’s some light at the end of the tunnel. But what exactly does 2021 it hold for graphic designers? Here are the graphic design trends we’re predicting for the year ahead.

Goodbye 2020—you will not be missed.
We break down 4 Marketing tips for 2021:
1. SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION – SEO
SEO is a type of digital marketing to optimize your website so that it can achieve higher rankings in search engines’ organic results. It is an effective means to drive qualified traffic to your site without directly paying for it.
2020 was an especially hard year for retailers. With COVID and other social factors, Black businesses have been hit disproportionately hard. Black-owned businesses have been hit so hard by the pandemic they need help beyond the consumer to survive. If you are a Black business, this is no surprise to you. As a society, we’re waking up to how we do business and attempting to level the playing field. With a greater emphasis on local community support and buying local, consumers have shifted their spending dollars.
