Creative and Graphic Design Services

Our award-winning creative services staff can improve your communications. With more than 50 years of combined experience in the communications design industry—most of that revolving around public education—we specialize in simple, effective communications that support your educational goals.

Our designs reflect the values of our clients and the communities they serve. In addition to personalized services, our customers benefit from a team approach. Our clients are often surprised at the high level of industry professionalism coming from a nonprofit agency. Each member of our award-winning team has a degree in art, communications or journalism, and our team members have a broad knowledge of—and sensitivity to—the issues and challenges facing public education.

As an ESD, we manage a variety of projects on tight deadlines, including school district newsletters, community reports, calendars, parental notifications and more. Staff work cooperatively to meet deadlines, and our project tracking system allows anyone on the team to easily locate projects even if the individual project manager is unavailable. Our department is staffed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Capacity and Services

Publication and Other Print Collateral: Save Time & Money with ESD 112

Why produce print publications? Shouldn’t we be focusing on our district website? Websites and e-mail lists are a powerful way to communicate with parents and families, but what about the rest of your community? Most communities include a significant population of individuals who don’t have children in school and have little connection to district happenings. Yet the health, welfare and prosperity of the entire community hinges on the quality of its schools. We know the importance of consistent, strategic communications that provide a vital connection between school districts and the communities they serve. Such communications support district goals by engaging families and communities in school happenings, people, philosophies and visions for the future.

We provide research, writing, art direction and layout service on any topic. We also work closely with our print center for special binding options, including spiral, coil, and sure bind.

Branding: Why Brand?

Branding increases the identity value of a school district. This facilitates a higher level of engagement in the district by parents and community members. We can help you grow your district's value by creating identity, personality, and strategic communications that reflect your core principles.
