Information + Design + Presentation

What is Information?

Well, everything. Any bit of data, content, messaging, and branding is Information.
Everything you want to communicate is Information. Information is a status update, a sales offer, or a product description. It can also be a t-shirt, a vehicle wrapper, or a whitepaper. Information is absolutely everything that is shared with your market, customer, or audience.

What is Design?

Well, everything! All of the information we have is great…until it becomes too much. Today, we almost immediately hit this limit.

Thus, the challenge with handling all that information is designing how it works together. Great design helps the user sift through information – content and ideas — so that it becomes consumable. Too much information overwhelms, too little…and you lose business. Meeting this challenge is why we love designing information – to make it effectively, efficiently, and intelligently consumable to your audience.

What is Presentation?

It is the thread that holds everything together. Fundamentally, how one presents their information is most important. All of your hard work and business development is brought to this point—the way you show yourself to the world. This is the office paint color, the suit you wear, the shoes on your feet, the car you drive, etc.

Presentation is your digital statement….from branding to emails to landing pages, from sales presentations to websites to social media. Let’s take everything you have. Let’s artfully weave all of your information into the most appropriate form factor and then release it — a visual story that compels your audience to action.

Our Approach

Speckled Jay loves to collaborate….and we hate silos. We work with you through the course of a project rather than just going off into the corner to meet a deadline. Your input on our take of your content is what makes for a successful set of deliverables to you. Sound confusing? Don’t worry, it isn’t. The more we communicate, the better your results. Throughout the process Speckled Jay focuses on consistency, brand, and—of course—your audience.

Branding is the heart of your visual story.

Especially key to expressing brand is a strong understanding of missions, beliefs, and values—all of which are communicated via a Voice. So, it is Voice, really, that is the essential component to the brand. After all, voice directly influences all other touchpoints—from product delivery to color choice, from sales to marketing, from the web site to the digital marketing mix. Most importantly, Voice is what the user experiences. Therefore, elements of design, such as icons and typefaces, are all just expressions of brand voice.

Good presentations tell a story, but the best ones change us.

Building a convincing presentation begins with data—which alone can be boring and lifeless. Next, add the argument or the storyline to start to bring data to life. Then use voice to sprinkle brand interest. Finally, include the effective use of tone to add emotion. Great data presentation and visualization design weaves together data, the storyline, voice, and tone into a stunning visual story that is easily understood. While drawing emotional impact, great data visualization displays fact to persuade. As a result, great data visualization changes opinions and ultimately influence our actions.
Data Visualization

The digital experience is more than just a web site.

This experience is how a user interacts with web content to reach a goal. Let’s say we want to research new computers. In the old days, we simply looked at a web site on a computer. Now, we also watch videos, research social media, or use a decision-making web app. We may be using a mobile phone, a tablet, a computer, or even a TV. Hence, a great digital experience is when a user easily connects with fabulous content they way they want. To be a truly great digital experience, the content and story must connect with the user, so the user feels connected to the brand.
