I had the opportunity to rebuild a long-standing Leesburg brand during the height of the pandemic, which meant long work weeks while my kids never, ever left the house! I'm grateful I had the opportunity to throw myself into this project just when I needed it, and work with the incredible staff and team at Leesburg Open Arms.

Leesburg Open Arms needed a new visual identity that encompassed more that just the infant age group, while staying fun and welcoming. I started with in-depth market research, including demographics and parent and teacher surveys and then moved on to the drawing and lettering, and finally onto the voice of the brand. I am so proud of the result of these last 6 months of hard work. LOA now has a new visual identity that really showcases who they are as a Christian community, a comprehensive brand guide to keep things consistent down to details like email signatures, a new mission statement, employee commission statement, and a brand new website!

I'll share more bits and pieces of the work here as I have time.

I've got so much to catch up on, as I've been neglecting this little corner of the web! I'll just jump right in with what is most recent... Becky & Josiah are celebrating 19 years of marriage! Avid bike riders, they've been polishing off the C&O canal in big sections. Last weekend we met up at the Point of Rocks section and documented the two of them doing what they love, together. Happy anniversary you two!

This one’s for my husband. We’ve never before spent so much time together under the same roof. Our jobs catch us in opposite schedules, and even before kids we were often ships passing in the night. Even with all the extra time together, and yes, extra arguments and stress too, he’s still my absolute favorite person on earth and I’m so lucky to call him mine.

Hot off the press, printed by my WA favorite - Lithtex NW. BKC wrote and designed this for MagnaDrive, based off of their big catalog that we created a while back. They needed something smaller that gave a snapshot of each product along with the top benefits of their air gap technology. We added in the focus on sustainability, as their products save companies upwards of 70% on energy costs while lightening impact on our earth.

Happy Easter!

It's about time we say it outloud - although this is not new news!

My two brands have joined forces! www.beckiekirkercreative.com
This page will remain up as an archive, but to stay up to date with new happenings and projects, head over to Facebook.com/beckiekirkercreative.

Operating as two separate brands just doesn't make sense anymore. We love telling stories creatively, through photography, brand work, campaigns, and print!

Beckie Kirker Creative is a personal marketing agency focused on bringing your story to life through strategy, design, messaging and photography. As the champion of your brand, we creatively and consistently craft fresh concepts and authentic B2B & B2C communications for businesses across the country.

BKC is taking on a limited number of editorial shoots. After 15 years of long and rewarding hours shooting weddings, we are shifting focus to smaller, more intimate affairs and elopements, graduate photography, and editorial family sessions (although once in a while I may shoot a wedding for a friend *wink*). Our photo-only website will remain up for proofing and showcasing our lifestyle and narrative works.

As always, thank you to our amazing family of supporters! BKC would not be here without you!

Scam alert - targeting graphic designers specifically. This scam has been going around for several years which I found after a quick google search. It's stemming from a call center of scammers, all sending almost the same emails to designers. This 'perspective client' didn't answer my questions, was pushy, and was overly eager to pay me. All giving me red flags. Not to mention the all caps bullets, spelling his name different than in his email address, and the details residing with another consultant, who I'd have to PAY TO GET INFO FROM. I didn't fall for it, but it sure feels creepy getting targeted. Be aware.

Breathing room. White space. Margins. These are types best friends. They all play into the readability of your materials. Generally speaking, If your content is running edge to edge, and is large, it will actually be harder to read than a much smaller font with breathing room. A properly proportioned font with room to breathe makes all the difference to your reader.

Lucketts Musical Programs are back from the Press! Lots of fun to work on one of my favorite story lines and sprinkle in little parrot and chimneysweep details throughout. Canterbury Graphics in Leesburg did an excellent job with the printing.

Walt was the creator of Mickey, as well as the voice of Mickey! Did you know he originally wanted to name the mouse Mortimer? His wife said that was too pretentious and suggested Mickey. It stuck! When it came time to make a movie, Walt realized Mickey could use some updating. He was so close to Mickey and his current ‘look’, that he hired Fred, who made the mouse into who we know today. Great leaders recognize their own weaknesses. They welcome others' ideas and recognize their team's talents. What fun it would have been to work with Walt!

It sure makes my day to hit the mark on a project! And to know I’m working with great people. I am my own harshest critic, as well as a perfectionist, pretty much always having imposture syndrome like so many other creatives. Got this short email from a client today and now I’m rolling into the Thanksgiving holiday a little lighter. Which just means more room for turkey and rolls! Make someone’s day today with an expression of gratitude or a simple compliment... cuz damn it feels good to be a gangsta (this email brought that diddy to mind right away 😂).

Brand Building & Story Telling

Beckie Kirker Creative develops ongoing relationships with companies looking to expand their brand and marketing reach, by developing concepts, campaigns, and collateral with the big picture in mind.

Let’s lean in. Listening is my favorite part, because writing, creating, and marketing your brand requires a deep dive into who you are. I’m here to learn all about your industry, your history and where you want to go, and asks lots of questions. It allows me to speak about your brand as though it is my own, making for spot-on messaging and creative.

Let’s print. In a day when most communication is instantaneous and screen-based, I place a high value on printed brand materials and printed photographs. Holding a piece that's been mailed or given has a lasting presence, and shows extra thought beyond that of an image or email scrolling by. While I create digital assets, design websites and work on social media, don't be surprised if the first thing I recommend is something your audience can touch.

Let’s show the world who you are. Over the course of my career I've had the privilege of working across a diverse range of industries, each with different needs - from zoos and non-profits, to engineering and healthcare. But my mission always remains the same–creating and becoming the voice, the design, and the biggest champion of each brand.
