You need a Graphic Designer.

No one knows more about your business than you do. You’re the expert.

But, why are you designing your own marketing materials yourself? You need someone who is an expert in graphic design to help you attract more customers, get a professional look and bring your marketing materials to the ‘next level’, and allow you to spend more time on your business.

Having the right Graphic Designer can help you to grow your business and be more successful – by providing more capability, more flexibility, increased efficiency, less frustration, and better outcomes.

Okay, so you know you need a Graphic Designer. So – what is holding you back?

Perhaps you are a new business and don’t know where to start; or are trying to control costs and are worried about how you will afford it. What you need is to find the right designer – one that works with small businesses such as yours, someone who understands your business and can help you grow it – without breaking the bank.

You need Electris Design.

About Electris Design

Charles Agopsowicz

Some quick facts:
  • Originally from a small hamlet in Southern Saskatchewan, I have lived and worked in Calgary, Alberta since 2001.
  • Well-versed in graphic design including logo design, print design and printing, web design including domain and web hosting services, and more.

I started Electris Design Ltd. in 2003 with some simple goals in mind:

Focus on small business and entrepreneurs

I’ve made a conscious decision to be a small business helping small businesses.  By focusing my offerings to small businesses, I am uniquely suited to cater to the needs of small businesses and entrepreneurs.

This focus keeps me nimble and flexible – I’m always ready and willing to provide solutions to your challenges, take your call or email, and accept your referrals.

Keep it simple, make it easy

I work with a few mantras: lead in service and value by offering simple to understand pricing with no “sticker-shock” – say what you’ll do and do what you say – always do right by your clients.

Seems like a no-brainer, right?  Well, you’d be amazed at the amount of clients that come to me because they have been let down in the past by someone who promised the moon, yet never delivered on the basics.

Be a one-stop solution

I like to be my clients’ “secret weapon” – someone they know they can call upon anytime they face a graphic design challenge or opportunity, and know they’ll be taken care of or pointed in the right direction.

I offer a wide range of services so that my clients can have peace of mind knowing I’ll give them solutions that will make them look great and help them grow their business.

Logo Design

It’s all about branding. Your company logo is often the first visual representation of your business your potential customers will be exposed to.

Put your best face forward with an effective logo that works well and looks great in all applications.

What makes a good logo?

Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. However, what makes a good logo is much more than just what looks nice.

While the logo must be a visually attractive reflection of your company and image, sometimes today’s designers miss the most important stuff – things like:

  • Visual clarity and simplicity
  • Easy readability from a distance
  • The ability for the logo to be used in processes such as print, embroidery, silk-screening, and more – without being completely redesigned and repurposed
  • The ability to scale the logo with no visual degradation

I care about production; about saving you time, money, and frustration in the future; and about your logo suiting you now, and years from now.  I look forward to the opportunity to show you what I can do.

Whether it’s time to start building your brand with a new logo, or time to refresh your image with a revamped logo, Electris Design has you covered.
I’ll design a new logo that is built to reflect your business and to fit your needs in the future – reproducing well on both print and screen.
What to expect with a logo designed by Electris Design:
  • A stunning new logo, designed from scratch to meet your specifications
  • I look at what kind of imagery exists in your industry to determine how best to set you apart from your competitors
  • Unlimited # of revisions to refine your logo – I’m not satisfied until you are
  • Built in vector, to be infinitely scale-able and suitable for web, print, and other reproduction processes
  • Built to save you money on printing costs and maximize your value, and to avoid frustrations you’d run into with a logo that’s not built for the many kinds of products you may use it for (such as printed items, window/vehicle graphics, apparel – processes many designers do not think about when building a logo that will cost their clients money and time down the road!)
  • Once your final logo is approved, you will receive your logo in several formats for your use, and a PDF logo standards guide

Pro D Seminars

Print Design

While print’s role in today’s marketing has changed, there is still no substitute for getting a piece of physical marketing in your current and potential customer’s hands.

It’s time to rediscover how beautifully designed and produced print media can set you apart from your competitors.

Spot color? Overprints? Bleed? Die lines?

Never fear – I speak printer.  You can be confident that I will design a project that will not only look good on screen, but will also translate into a beautiful printed piece you’ll be proud to show your customers.

While I can design your project for your preferred print supplier, I have some really great digital and offset print providers in order to offer you printing services at very competitive prices.

Here are just some of the items you could have designed by Electris Design:
  • Business stationary – business cards, letterhead, envelopes
  • Brochures, flyers, leaflets
  • Posters and signs, large format printing and lamination
  • Books, booklets, catalogs
  • Presentation folders & inserts
  • Direct advertising – postcards, door hangers, and more
  • Business forms and certificates
  • Custom items – Product labels and tags, Realtor feature sheets, medical/dental/optometry recall cards, menus, wedding invitations and RSVPs, greeting and thank you cards, event invitations and tickets, and much more

Here are just a few of the many print items I have designed (and, in most cases, printed) for my clients:

Tony and Sheryl Thompson brochure
Tropical Properties leaflet
Lina Epicure catalog booklets
Jipetco Resources presentation folder and inserts

Web Design

If you don’t have a presence on the web, you’re not reaching your audience. Your website needs to have both form and function – to be visually appealing while also effectively communicating your message.

Let me help by providing a striking, powerful customized website – built with the power and flexibility of WordPress.

Three items are required for your website to work: a domain (I recommend securing both the .ca and .com of your domain, if available), a web hosting account (to hold the website files and manage things such as email addresses), and the website design itself.  Electris Design can provide all three items.

Why WordPress?

I recommend using WordPress because it has proven itself to be highly effective and flexible website platform.

WordPress started as a blog platform but has evolved into much more.  The WordPress CMS (content management system) allows website content to be easily modified, and comes with powerful blogging tools built-in.

Premium themes and plug-ins make the platform very flexible and customizable.  The platform also sees frequent updates that help to keep the software updated to meet changing web technology and security.

Taking the mystery out of web design.
What to expect with a website from Electris Design:
  • Package pricing takes out the guesswork and potential “sticker shock”
  • Your first year of domain registration is included (.com and .ca, subject to availability)
  • Your first year of web hosting services is included (“Lite” account level, additional account levels available if required, at add’l charge)
  • A customized WordPress site
  • Website content including menus, pages, and posts; set up and formatted to your specifications
