Recognition

OK, after blushing a little, we’d like to say that AXIS visual has been recognized as one of the Best Packaging AgenciesBranding Agencies, Custom Logo Design Companies, Creative Advertising Agencies and Graphic Design Companies on DesignRush.

23 Years

276 months, 1,104 weeks, 5,520 days (not counting weekends). And even though it’s a cliché, in some ways it seems like only yesterday that AXIS visual was born. There is tremendous pride in those 23 years. Businesses helped, creative branding developed and delivered, creative ideas explored, great people met and more than two decades of experience and learning. What’s not to love. A heartfelt thank you to all of those that have trusted AXIS visual with your business communications and promotion over the past 2,649,600 minutes.

Proposals 2.0

One of AXIS’s valued clients has been asking us to design their proposals to their targeted customers. These proposals are 17 x 11 inches and give 80 plus pages of healthcare services data the look of an entertaining publication and are now (we are happy to say) a pleasure to read

A New Home

After 19 years at our previous location we moved into a new office. And after throwing out 18 1/2 years of accumulated “stuff” , after fixing up the new building and after unpacking the boxes… ok, most of them, we have settled in and are really enjoying it. The new office gives us a more creative space to meet, to collaborate and to show what we do. And it’s just fun. We see the building as a big sculpture that we will continue to work on as the spirit moves us.

New Portfolio

Yes, our new site offers a ton work examples but we still love showing our printed portfolio. There is just something about viewing design samples as one would look through a beautiful cookbook or a book of antique cars. We have a PDF available here.

AXIS TV ad

We recently put a simple little 30-second TV ad together with help from some of our partners, (ART-C and Hopetown Sound). It was seen during the Arts Program on SNJ Today/WACP.

Radio Interview

ART-C interview on WOND 1400 AM. Bill Milnazik was recently interviewed with Eric Lepping of Sherpalab, a web development company. The topic was creativity and branding for businesses and the technology of web development.

WMOF Logo

The World Meeting of Families was a wonderful event for Philadelphia and the world. It made a huge impact on our city as well as the attendees. It also gave Pope Francis his first exposure to the US community. We are proud to have created the logo for an event of this importance. An interview on FOX news was done with Bill Milnazik about the creation of the logo.
