What is it?

design + awesome is a way of thinking about design, marketing, and customer service. It’s about going beyond thinking of websites as online brochures and embracing the living nature of the web.

We believe good design thinking doesn’t stop when we deliver the goods.

Featured Project

MaRS Innovation Funding Presentation

mars feature

We created a series of PowerPoint decks for MaRS Innovation to help them request funding and update their general membership. The project consisted of creating custom templates and slides as well as developing iconography to convey complex concepts in an easy to digest format.

“I hired Rick to produce the visuals for an important PowerPoint presentation deck. Although we are located in different cities, he worked closely with me to refine our vision for the working document, provided outstanding visuals to augment our content and created a cohesive, professional deck that earned an extremely positive response from our stakeholders.”
