In graphic animation, it's the subtle touches that breathe life into static illustrations. A gentle sway, a fleeting shadow, or a soft pulse can transform an image into an encapsulating experience. Our Portland animators excel at infusing static designs with that hint of motion, striking a balance between familiar and fascinating.     Our approach starts with understanding the original illustration's intent. We identify elements to animate, preserving your core message while adding engaging layers. Animations vary from grand gestures to nuanced touches, enhancing the design's purpose and strategy.     Step into this dynamic world with us. Witness your illustrations evolve, effortlessly captivating viewers through tailored animations.

How to Choose a Graphic Design Agency in Portland

Compatibility Check

When selecting a Portland graphic design agency, prioritize the agency's creative prowess, versatility, and style. Look for a diverse portfolio showcasing adaptability.     Effective communication, reliable deadlines, and a collaborative approach are important. You want an agency that listens to your ideas, aligns with your brand, and values your feedback.     Pay attention to design innovation, staying updated with what’s trending, and the ability to deliver long-term value. While cost is important, consider the overall impact the agency's work will have on your brand's success.

Review Work & Past Performance

Review their portfolio for quality and variety. A diverse portfolio signals adaptability and allows you to gauge creative capabilities and style.     Quality and consistency are crucial. High-quality caliber work reflects professionalism. Case studies and testimonials provide valuable insight into client satisfaction. Look for flexibility and innovation to ensure an agency has the capability to keep your brand fresh. Assess their capacity to handle similarly scoped projects.     Portfolio evaluation provides an unbiased look at the agency's design expertise. It’s key in determining if their creative style and capabilities are the best match for your brand's visual needs.     At Avalore, we’ve been humming along for over eight years, building up a wealth of experience in organizations of all sizes.

Seek Client References

To find the perfect Portland graphic design agency, use client feedback as your guide. Start by scouring testimonials and reviews that reveal the agency's level of professionalism and work quality through the eyes of previous clients.     Next, look for cues in communication and collaboration. Good feedback here signals a client-centric approach. This is where your input is valued and a collaborative partnership is cultivated.     Look for evidence of real-world impact. Tangible results as documented by clients from past projects reveal the true value an agency brings. Client feedback is your window into an agency's interactions, helping you determine their reliability and the true impact of their design work.     With Avalore, you get a Portland graphic design agency renowned for long-lasting client relationships. Our commitment to maintaining partnerships throughout our history speaks volumes. We believe it’s a testament worth sharing.

Evaluate Communication Skills

Communication skills are pivotal when selecting a graphic design agency. Begin by evaluating their interaction style. Clear, respectful, and accommodating communication is a must in any successful partnership.     Emphasize responsiveness. A dependable agency will keep you informed, address your inquiries promptly, and ensure your concerns are resolved.     You need an agency that values what you have to say and strives for transparency. They should actively integrate your feedback, keep you informed throughout a project, and approach problem-solving creatively. In design, effective communication and collaboration leads to trust and outstanding results.     While graphic design can be done from anywhere, if you’re in Portland and want a partner that understands the local culture—we recommend choosing a Portland-based agency.
