Q&A

You asked, we answered! In this section, the design team will address frequently asked questions about anything design- or brand-related. Don't forget to submit your question below to have it answered in the next issue of B•Space.

Q: One of the questions I get asked a lot is in regards to changing Partner/contact information on sell sheets, brochures, and other design materials.

Is there an easy way to edit that information for client meetings, trade shows, etc?

— Erica, Central Group

A: The BDO Print Portal contains 300 print assets ready for use. It contains static and variable marketing print materials. Static assets cannot be edited, but variable assets can be modified by adding local contact information in the designated fields.

The Print Portal provides you two options: you can either receive a printed copy of your chosen marketing collateral documents or download a PDF. When you select your chosen document, you’ll be prompted to fill in the contact information. This is where you can customize the asset with relevant contact information.

Once you’ve edited the document, you can view the proof, add it to your basket and check out. The updated file will be emailed to you, and sent to you if you chose to receive printed copies.

For access to the Print Portal, contact Emily Ewing, National Communications Specialist. Can’t find what you’re looking for? You can request a new or updated sell sheet or brochure using Smartsheet. Click here to access the form.

You can find more information on the BDO Print Portal here and here.

After a long or crazy day, I love to unwind by watching trainwreck shows like Nailed It. Nothing’s better than Nicole Byers and baking gone wrong to brighten my mood.

Please Like Me (Netflix) is my go to show – it’s witty and sarcastic, while handling some serious topics with humour. If you enjoy more serious shows, I highly recommend Queen Sugar or Vida.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a delight to watch for the fast-paced dialogue, well-drawn characters, and the impeccable costume and set design. Think Gilmore Girls meets Mad Men.

Stone Age (May 2006)

If you have not seen Man on Fire it’s time to put that on your list. Great story about redemption, friendship, and to top it off, you’ve got great action to a beautiful story.

I recommend anything by Emily Cohen. She writes about the business of design and what makes a creative team effective but most of it could apply to any team. And she’s really entertaining.

Currently, the Netflix series Stranger Things has been keeping me on the edge of my seat. It’s a spooky, fun, crazy and addictive world, especially if you love all things ‘80s.
