It was fun, 2023.

Not a studio to be caught twiddling our thumbs, we spent this year aburst with all manner of exciting projects.

From event design to building signage to packaging to digital marketing, there are few endeavors we don’t undertake in a year, and 2023 was no different.

Every year we’re so grateful for the collaboration and trust our clients place in us, helping guide them to new impact for their brands. The sampling below only scratches the surface of a year’s-worth of work, but for fear of combusting with pride, we have to share a few.

Event Design

As Greater Wichita Partnership began planning for their annual meeting, they engaged us to create a unique event experience that excited and envisioned its investors. Collaboratively, Gardner Design themed and designed materials, interior graphics, and a keynote presentation for the splendid event. In partnership with Justin McClure Creative, Ambiance, Kent A/V, and composer Alex Wakim, the night embedded something special into those that attended.

Signage & Promo Merch

In the same year of their major remodel and move to downtown Wichita, Keycentrix also garnered praise for their creative, quirky marketing efforts. Sticker designs and other merch designed by Gardner Design have become a series that trade show goers anticipate every year, building sales leads and interest in the company.

Relatedly, Keycentrix was recognized at this year’s regional American Marketing Association Awards, winning gold in the Corporate Marketing category.

ECommerce & Packaging

Fitted with a custom ecommerce website designed and built by Gardner Design, Gypsum Hills Natural launched online sales and began delivering their custom-designed meat boxes to customers Kansas-wide. Learn more about the product launch.

Digital Marketing

Working with Gardner Design for its digital marketing strategy and design, Dodge City Community College launched a paid campaign this year that directed viewers to custom landing pages matched to their own interests or preferred language. The outcome was a high conversion rate, successfully drawing interest from prospective students in the area and equipping DC3’s enrollment team.

Identity Design & Vehicle Graphics

A medical clinic in northwestern Kansas launched a new mobile unit to reach their rural community where there’s less access to vaccines, dental, and medical care. Gardner Design led the process of naming, identity design, and branding that will fuel AmberMed Mobile Clinic onward.

Holiday Card

A holiday tradition for ICW Group, their “Season’s Tweetings” animated card set out to charm the hearts of customers that received it. With clever wordplay, cute illustrations, and delightful animation, the digital card helped ICW spread their own brand of holiday cheer, third in a series that Gardner Design has done for them.
