THE NEW FRONT DOOR...

Before they walk into your building, they walk into your website. As a matter of fact, over 80% of the time, your website is a key deciding factor in whether or not they ever walk through your real front door. Your website is also the place for people to hang out and be social. It's the place where they find and build community.

A great website doesn't just convey your heart, it bridges your heart with those you are trying to reach—indicating that you understand them and have what they are looking for. Let us create a website that builds the bridge between you and your community.

THE BRIDGE...

BEFORE THEY WALK INTO YOUR BUILDING, THEY TRAVEL THROUGH YOUR WEBSITE.
Whether you have built it deliberately or not, your website is literally a bridge—paved with your values demonstrated in content and style. As a matter of fact, over 80% of the time, your website is the key deciding factor in whether or not they ever walk through your real front door. They will compare your bridge with other alternatives and show up on the doorstep of the one that speaks their language the best.

Its not just about you—its also about them. A great website not only conveys your story—it bridges who you are with those you are trying to reach—indicating to those around you that you "get" them, and that you have what they are looking for.

What's Your Story?

What image comes to mind when you think of design? Is it flashy? Or boring? More importantly, does it tell a story? At Artistry Labs we want your brand and subsequent design to tell your story, and no one else's. Oh sure, we're up on the latest trends and cool tricks to make your signage, website and overall brand relevant, attractive and up-to-date, if not ahead of the game. What's really important to us, though, is that in everything we design, the true heart and essence of your organization shines through. That's our story.

This unified vision—or brand—cultivates a sense of pride and volunteerism among your staff and membership—propelling you forward with confidence and solidarity towards maximum efficiency and greater growth.

GROWTH

Growth isn't just about numbers, it's about health. As members and visitors begin to see the vision in action, their sense of pride will increase and they will become more willing to invite friends and family. In addition, a calibrated service and brand will increase the likelihood that our target audience within the community will be likely to visit. The cycle begins again as visitors catch the vision, get connected and invite even more people to see what God is doing.

DAYSTAR CHURCH GREENSBORO, NC

"Hiring Artistry has definitely been one of the best decisions we have ever made. I am excited we get to work together and excited about all God is going to allow us to do in the months and years to come. What a ride ahead!"

Allen Holmes | Lead Pastor


WHAT WE DID

Check out their website at
www.daystarsgo.com


THE PROCESS

As a smart, young, active church located at the hub of a cultural crossroads in Greensboro, NC, Daystar is growing by leaps and bounds. The church that many knew as a youth church has developed into a wiser and stronger church; equipping itself to provide a sense of community and purpose to generations young and old who desire to see a great work of God take place in the city.

Artistry came along side Daystar to help their brand reflect the true vibe of the church. Much like the inside of their retrofitted building, the brand contains a sense of character, authenticity and depth. This relevant, smart, young family church is thriving and has a unique ability to spur a community into action; reaching the city from the inside out.

We believe that your design should reflect your organization's true identity, highlight its assets, and foster a sense of pride and belonging among your staff and members.

Our design services work hand in hand with our consulting services to create calibrated brands that extend beyond your website to your campus, your community and into the minds of your target audience.

Let's start a journey...

A great relationship begins by getting on top of the mountain together—looking down to our past and our future, and seeing where the future lies. To get there we help you get away from the everyday routine and truly find the heart and core of your organization through research, analysis, brainstorming and some of the most intense and enlightening meetings you'll every have.

We explore the possibilities, the probabilities and the past indicators to reveal your community's unique personality—and that of your organization. Through this journey, we reach the summit and get a clear view of the future. It's from this vantage point that we can see all our options, how small changes can make big differences, and the organization we could be when we grow up.

Armed with this game changing insight, a blueprint develops—one that serves as a guide for the rest of our journey together. It's in the implementation of this bluebrint that our relationship proves its value and you reap the benefits of a trusted third part advisor—someone from the outside who has your back and will be honest with you about where you really stand and what you have to do to get better.

Over time the relationship grows as we build, evaluate, adjust and calibrate the communications strategy we've created together. In relationship, we are who you need us to be. We're your research company, your liaison with the architect, your resource for the perfect hire, your curriculum analyzer, your design team, and your marketing strategists.

When you hire a designer or lead strategist, you might get someone who can crank out design or provide good insight, but no one individual can do what Artistry's team can do—providing the mind of a brilliant strategist, the eyes and skills of great designers, the communication consistency of a superb brand manager, and the technology capability and SEO strategy of smart programmers. All this for the cost of a individual salary - or less.

Can you imagine your communications strategy with the power of Artistry Labs behind it? Take a journey up the mountain with us and let's transform this thing together—in relationship.

Marketing Can't Contain Us

THE STORY OF WHY ARTISTRY MARKETING IS NOW ARTISTRY LABS...

As Artistry Marketing, we have pounded the table for years, challenging that marketing is a much bigger topic than most people realize. We have said vehemently that marketing is about everything you do. I have poured out my heart passionately at conferences and I have written tirelessly that everything we do that affects the perception of who we are is marketing and that it's our responsibility to steward such things.

As we've developed as a firm, 12 years ago our great impact on marketing was direct mail pieces, while today our great impact is seeing consulting clients navigate from a church in decline to a church doubling each year—exploding with growth and changed lives. As our consulting has become more and more the focus of our organization, we have devoted more and more of our efforts towards creating health in the local church, in ministries and beyond.

What's really funny, is that as we always believed that marketing was a giant umbrella, we as a firm have simply gone beyond it. We're dealing with topics such as organizational health, optimized assimilation, team building and change management, that have become weapons in our arsenal to improve our clients' effectiveness.

In addition to the expansion of the scope of what we do, we've also, in the last 18 months, made dramatic changes to the way that we do it. As a firm, we've taken on the challenge to spend more time in deeper relationships with a precious number of clients. This spirit-led directive has been game changing, not just for us as a firm, but for the clients that we serve. The fruit just keeps growing and the amount of lives that are being touched as a result of who we are today is increasing at an exponential level.

What does all this mean? It means, that we are not the firm today that we were 2 years ago, 5 years ago, or 10 years ago. Our relationships are deeper, longer and wider and our effectiveness considerably higher. Sometimes in life, we make a few tweaks in how we do things, and sometimes we come to stages where we are truly altogether different. You'll hear more about it as we progress.

From this point forward, we are Artistry Labs. Within our "Labs" we are researching, tweaking, analyzing, shaping, experimenting and discovering beautiful things. We are providing consulting services that go below the surface to the very core of who we are. We are testing and improving design to the point that it kindles momentum for our clients. We are mad scientists creating technology solutions like you have never seen. In it all, we are seeing new levels of impact for our clients—in relationship.

Marketing just couldn't contain us. Strategic transformation starts with Artistry Labs.

Sincerely,

Richard L Reising
President, Artistry Labs (Formerly Artistry Marketing)

Hi my name is Amber, I would love to talk with you about our branding services!
