At AvreaFoster, our guiding principle is to bring clarity to the complex. We help clients in the most complex of industries align their leadership strategies, better engage business prospects and transform employee culture — and we use the power of design to accomplish those goals.

DESIGN FORWARD MEANS APPROACHING OUR WORK WITH A DESIGNER’S EYE AND THROUGH A STRATEGIC LENS.
Where do you draw creative inspiration?
When it comes to inspiration, I don’t limit myself to graphic design sources alone. I pull inspiration from all creative arenas, including architecture, product design, landscape architecture, fashion, music and the fine arts. Anything that’s aesthetically stimulating or communicates a concise message using clever cues — that’s what inspires me. It’s important as creative people to find inspiration outside your industry. That’s where the best ideas come from.
One example would be a logo design project for a large real estate developer. The client brought in a regional map with outlines tracing the boundaries of their property developments, and the resulting shapes resembled a series of bird feathers. Inspired, I worked to incorporate stylized feathers into the client’s logo design. The final product embodied the spirit of innovation that transformed a region, giving flight to new business opportunities and economic prosperity.
How do you incorporate design into the greater creative process?
WE SPEND QUALITY TIME IN DISCOVERY BECOMING EXPERTS ABOUT OUR CLIENT’S COMPANY, SERVICES AND THEIR CUSTOMERS’ NEEDS.
How does the rest of the company support your design efforts?

It’s wonderful when everyone is working in unison toward the same goals and vision for our clients, and it’s so rewarding when our clients keep coming back to us because of the quality of our work and creative thinking.
