I'm a Design and Visual Communications instructor at a Vocational High School. I teach cartooning, illustration, animation, graphic design, web design, and a little video. I'm well acquainted with the Adobe Mastersuite Collection CS6 (I'm a big Illustrator fan), won awards for newspaper editorial cartoons (1990's), and had a cartoon strip published in Norway. I have done caricatures (from photos) and have a background in silkscreen and advertising specialty design.

Let's face it. This is a new age. Social media has inundated us with a staggering amount of messaging and visual content. The brand landscape is more competitive than ever. Savvy messaging and graphics can't propel a product or service that people don't want or need to success. But you better believe that even a solid offering with a dull or amateurish presentation is much more likely to not be embraced. You may save money with a cheap or junior creative partner, but you will pay for it in the end.
Look at your brand this way: when first meeting someone--voice, tone, articulation, hair, face, eyes, build, shoes, dress (and on) are assessed in seconds. Whether we like it or not, we make assumptions that have impact. Your brand is no different. The quality of the presentation, the resonance of the messaging, the freshness and uniqueness of the graphics (on and on) immediately conjure a judgement. 'Cheap' branding signals cheap quality.
