There is a range of ways I can help. I love making documents and would like to work with you on improving yours. That might look like me doing the entire design/layout and then making all the pages. It might look like me improving your existing materials. It might be giving me an hour to change as much as I can (you’d be surprised at what an hour can do with the right tactics). I can also take an existing document’s first few pages and make the rest of the document look like it all belongs. Or I might assist with a rebrand. That is where an agency has given you a new look (fonts, colours, logo etc) and you are left with all your old documents. I can make the old documents look like the new brand.
I also have a course available if you wish to learn some tricks for yourself. Once a month, I run a group quick and casual group workshop where I will give you some pointers for your specific document. And, if you want, I can speak to your company, about ways to improve your documents.
Graphic design services can be purchased as a package through my ecommerce site: Lakazdi.com. These packages include stock images and two rounds of revisions. You can order just the things that your business needs. All items are at a fixed rate for easier budgeting. Individual lead times are listed so you can plan around the time frame. Select from a range of different business and marketing documents including: brochure, presentation slides, booklets and custom-made for you templates in Word or PowerPoint. If you need something more bespoke please contact me to discuss your project further.
If however you need a full package of items, the signature graphic design package gives you a bit of a discount.
You should be more confident in delivering your offering (and charging more). The graphic design of your materials is super important.

I put together an easy to follow along course with tips to improve your documents. It is just just about the look of the document but how well they function. And some tips to improve readability.
I understand how busy you are so I have condensed over two decades of learning this stuff for myself into a course you can go through in an afternoon. There is even a checklist so after you have done the learnings, you can follow along with the steps.
Course is an instant download straight to your computer, no log-ins or websites.
It is easy to get overwhelmed. There are so many things you could do to make a document look better. But where to start? Don’t have time to learn all the ins and outs of Graphic Design? This course will teach you some basic back-end things, how to add in way-finding and some tricks to help improve the readability of your content.
Have you ever sent someone a document that didn’t get the result you were after? Would they have trusted a better looking document more? Would they have read all of it and understood it if it was easier to look through? Could you charge more if it was better?
Being able to create great documents is just as important as being able to speak clearly. This skill will pay dividends for the rest of your life.
What you’re going to learn here will work for you in all sorts of applications. We’ll be using Word, but you can follow along in Google Docs or Pages.
Do you learn better by seeing and going through a process? The first Tuesday of the month I run an online workshop where I’ll help you go through your documents to find ways to improve them. As a group, you share your document and other business owners will share theirs. The whole workshop goes for only 30 minutes and is very casual. My aim is offer everyone a chance to share their document and be given a fix to implement. Numbers are capped at 15 participants so I can help you with your document worries.
There are 10 things I make sure to do to every document that I follow along with. And these tweaks in combination can lead to serious #documenttransformation.
I would love to talk to your audience about the importance of having good documents. It is not just that it is good for business (people pay more for better quality) but good for your confidence. I’ve seen my clients that teach others increase their rates after they had their workbooks redesigned.
I could seriously talk about documents and design for hours. I am even a bit controversial in my industry because I truly believe that good design can happen inside PowerPoint and Microsoft Word. I believe it so much, I design templates for my clients in these software packages. I am open to ideas for how I can help you, help your audience.
Below are some suggestions but of course, reach out if you think that together we can help in a way that will have more of an impact.
