EXPERT STRATEGIES & DESIGNS
AWARD WINNING AGENCY
We originated in 2018 as AJ Creative, and had the pleasure of working with over 100 local brands on design and strategy. This resulted in us winning multiple Durham Region Readers’ Choice Awards in 2020 & 2021 for:
- Business Consulting Services
- Web Services / Design
- Graphic Design Services
- Graphic/Web Design
In 2020 we rebranded from AJ Creative to Design Wise to focus on brand strategy and business operations for brands making meaningful connections and providing generous value online.
CERTIFIED BRAND STRATEGIST
It’s not enough to have a beautiful design, it should also generate revenue, increase efficiency, and communicate effectively. Alicia comes from a background of software training, Applications Analysis, IT support, and Website Development & Design. With a passion for creating processes that help business owners generate leads without feeling “salesy”, Alicia worked with Marty Neumeier to get certified as a Level C Brand Strategist. Now she works with business owners as a strategic partner for brand content design and technology workflows to ensure every aspect of the customer experience is meaningful.
DESIGNING THE WAY FORWARD
PEOPLE FIRST APPROACH
No brand can exist without customers. Therefore we help you learn who your customers are and ensure designs speak to their values.
We have a people first approach to ensure our clients can connect authentically with their customers. Our goal is to improve the buying process for the conscious consumer.
