We've worked with dozens of Seattle companies to deliver great design, and we're always delighted to work with a new team in our home town.

How we can help

Starting a project with Lightboard is simple. Find a project type below that matches what you need, and fill out a short form describing your project.

For example, if you'd like us to redesign your PowerPoint sales deck, upload your current PowerPoint file and a few examples of PowerPoint presentations that you like. We'll read through the brief and send you an estimate—and if we have any questions we'll follow up with an email or a phone call.

Once we have an approved estimate, we'll assign a designer and start work. You should receive your first round of design within a few business days.

Case Study Design

Case Study Design

Share the great work your team does with a polished case study. Normally two pages that quickly and concisely describe the work you've done for one of your customers. Delivered as a print-ready PDF. We'll work with you to make sure you look your best—and that the final result is aligned with your brand guidelines. We'll also deliver the working files (usually InDesign) so that you can update the file later with new information, or re-use the design as a template.

Display Ad Design

Display Ad Design

We can design your display ad campaign for deployment on any of the major ad networks. We can also design, develop, and animated HTML5 campaigns. We're experienced with all of the major ad networks (Google Display Network, DoubleClick, AdRoll, etc.) and will make sure your units will pass their approval processes.

Social Media Design

Social Media Design

Add a little pop to your social media with Lightboard. We can design Facebook ads or shareable images for any of your social media accounts (Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram). We're well acquainted with the text and file size requirements for each network (hello 20% rule!) and can share best practices we've learned from designing hundreds of social media ads.

Custom Illustration

Custom Illustration

Custom illustration is a great way to stand out from your competitors. We'll work with you to identify the right style for your brand, and then assign the right illustrator for the project. Custom illustration projects are frequently iconography, where we design the visual vocabulary or your product. They can also be process illustrations or infographics, which visually explain complex ideas to make it easier for your audience to understand. Illustration projects can also support content marketing, providing spot illustration for article headers or body support.

Landing Page and Website Design and Development

Landing Page and Website Design and Development

Your website is your front door to the world. We can design and develop an entirely new website from scratch, or redesign your current one. We can also design a landing page for your new campaign, and implement it within your marketing platform (i.e. Hubspot or Marketo). For website design, we can simply do the design and hand over the Photoshop files to your developers, or we can take care of development for you. We can develop in straight HTML, or on the WordPress or Squarespace platform. We design for responsive websites (i.e. mobile and desktop friendly).

eBook Design

eBook Design

Need to explain your solution in long form, or create a guide for your customers? eBooks are the way to go. These are usually 20-40 pages, and can be designed to feel like a book. We can design charts, select stock photography, and produce custom iconography and illustration as needed to create the right look for you. We deliver a PDF you can send to your customers, as well as the InDesign file that we used to build the design. eBooks are often paired with landing pages and email templates to send out as part of a marketing campaign; we can help you deliver a campaign in Hubspot, Marketo, or the platform of your choice.

Email Template Design and Development

Email Template Design and Development

Our expert designers can help you send emails that look great and convert. We can deliver design files (PSDs) or develop the HTML in your marketing platform. We've worked with all of the major platforms (MailChimp, Hubspot, Marketo, etc.), and test all of our files through Litmus to ensure they render correctly on every major email platform.

Document Design (PDFs)

Document Design (PDFs)

Give your business a new level of polish with professionally designed documents. Usually letter-sized PDFs meant to be distributed by email or downloaded—and possibly printed out by your customer—we can design case studies, sales sheets, battle cards, or product descriptions. If you need print-ready file—like a tri-fold brochure or business card—no problem. Just give us the size you need and we'll take care of you.
