Presentation matters. Even in bathrooms.

The kind of the all over the place website GraphicDesign.com takes some time off from polling their readers about industry practices and writing Photoshop tutorials to talk a little about why presentation matters. The article’s driving analogy is ‘bathrooms in restaurants.’ Every restaurant should have a bathroom, and you shouldn’t mind the experience of going to them. And when a small restaurant takes the time to make sure that their bathrooms are clean, maintained and well-designed, that attention to detail makes the rest of the restaurant look better.

As the article goes on to say, “For many organizations there is a huge gap between the good work that is produced and how it is communicated to your public. Many years ago we were working on a new design for a printing company and when we met with the sales force we found out that they did not like to hand out their business cards. “They’re embarrassing,” said one of the salesmen. When a salesman does not want to hand out a business card you have a problem. If communications are sloppy and the websites don’t work properly the impressions pile up that this organization does not have its act together.”

You might have the best content your line of work has to offer, but if your business cards looks amateurish and your website is hard to use and look at, people aren’t going to take you seriously. At GoElaborate, we understand that, and it shows in the depth and talents of our top-shelf designers, our portfolio of clients, and most importantly the individual care we will pay to your business.

Don’t believe us? Come to our business and use our bathroom.
