Principles of Marketing
The creative process is led and inspired by many factors including marketing objectives, advertising objectives, creative strategy, and brand positioning. Just as line, shape, unity, balance and color are the elements of design, information, research, planning, insight and intuition are the elements of marketing strategy.

Information fuels the imagination and creates a synergy where numbers, words, ideas and images are illuminated through design to create a more meaningful and memorable message. Alternative Designs makes your plans FLY.
