Print is here to stay! …But increasingly it has become easier, faster, and cheaper to create a presence online without producing any printed materials at first. Then, when your web-based venture is wildly successful—congratulations!—you’ll likely need to gracefully navigate into the printed world, and thoughtful design consideration from the outset will ensure a smooth transition. From color and typeface choices, to vector-based-graphics, to visual arrangements and stylistic elements, the identity you present online can (and should) be crafted to be ready for the switch to print.

About the Presenter
Beth has been spreading her bike-centric, tree-hugging, greenie-weenie design ethos across Burque under the not-at-all-secret alias Mixed Greens Design since 2009. She was trained in Industrial Design, but her focus for the past several years has shifted to include primarily logo and identity design. She has delivered projects ranging in scope from mom-&-pop-shop event flyers to an award winning family history book, and has found her close working relationships with small, local businesses to be deeply rewarding. More recently, Beth has begun venturing into the wild world of web design and finding that it, like print design, is full of frustrating challenges (dangit!) and triumphant successes (yay!).
