Welcome to Arlow Lacey Design. I’m flattered you’re interested in learning about who we are — thanks! I should probably start with an introduction. Ahem. I’m Lauren, the founder and self-appointed chief dog cuddler of Arlow Lacey Design. When not cuddling canines, I spend most of my leisure time combining colours in my mind with the hope of one day rediscovering the lost hue of Atlantis… wait that’s not right, I didn’t write that! Hmmm, one of the developers must have gotten into my notes again. So let’s try this again… I’m Lauren and Arlow Lacey Design is the studio I founded after working in the design industry for the past eight years. After graduating from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Design, I moved to London and worked with Anova Books Group as a digital product designer. Failing to meet Harry Potter or find Hogwarts, I returned home and began my next job as a graphic designer at the Royal Alberta Museum. No, I wasn’t responsible for styling the wooly mammoth’s hair-do. Throughout all of this, I’d been working on many independent contracts with a variety of clients, ranging from start-up to established. Before long I was spending the majority of my nights and weekends on these projects and I knew it was time start my own studio — Arlow Lacey Design.
So, now that you know how Arlow Lacey Design came to be, let me tell you a little bit about who we are. Arlow Lacey Design specializes in logo and identity design, stationery, marketing materials, eNewsletters, websites, social media and more. We work closely with our clients to understand their needs and provide solutions that deliver results. Good! I feel like we know each other a little better now. If you’d like to continue the conversation or if you have any questions, please get in touch.
Logo and Identity Design
We can help you design a comprehensive identity package, including logo, business cards, letterheads, brochures, ads, stickers, stamps, apparel and more. Once the basic groundwork for your identity is designed it’s easy to apply it to almost anything! Before you know it, you’ll be set with all the tools you need to succeed.
Custom WordPress Development
We love working with WordPress and customizing it to meet a variety of needs. Why reinvent the wheel when so much of the work is out there and available for use? WordPress offers a user-friendly content management system (CMS) that allows clients to manage, update and add content to their own sites. Never fear, on-site training and/or tutorials can be provided for less-than-web-savvy clients. Not interested in managing your own site? We can arrange a future maintenance plan to keep your website in tip top shape!
Another fantastic feature of WordPress is the ability to use responsive themes. Now what is that, you ask. A responsive theme automatically resizes to fit a wide variety of devices, from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones and most everything in between. Gone are the days when multiple site versions have to be built separately!
Need your website to sell goods or services? We’ll set up secure hosting and build an eCommerce integrated website that accepts all the most popular payment methods.
Domain, Hosting and Email
Allow us to take care of the initial headache when setting up a website by providing domain purchasing and management, a hosting plan to suite your needs and @yourdomain email accounts.
Search Engine Optimization
We’ll set the foundations for search engine optimization (SEO) by following best practices in web standards while building the site and submitting a site map to Google for indexing once it’s complete. Enabling Google Analytics will allow you to track visitors and their activity on your website as well as provide valuable insight to professional search engine optimizers to employ further SEO techniques.
Looking for a service to collect subscribers and send out branded eNewsletters? We work with eNewsletter platforms such as MailChimp, to do just this. MailChimp integrates seamlessly with WordPress to ensure you’re gaining subscribers from your website. Subscribers can also be added manually, for clients without websites.
Daunted by the idea of keeping up with social media these days? We’ll work with you to decide which social media streams are best for your company, assist with set-up and incorporate them into all of your media.
