Tradeshow Display Design

Though they aren’t always easy, tradeshows are often great ways to engage in conversations with potential customers, network with peers, and further establish current contacts. With so much potential to grow your company, it’s important you capitalize.

What is tradeshow display design?

Tradeshow display design is an umbrella term for all graphics required to attract passerby and effectively participate at a tradeshow. As everyone knows, the best booths are those equipped with consistent messaging and memorable design—signage, promotional material, pull-up banners, or full backdrop displays, for example. (Admittedly, an iPad or two doesn’t hurt either!) With so much information to get across to individuals during a short stop to your booth, it makes sense that you let your display design do some of the heavy-lifting. A memorable, reusable, and professional look goes a long way in establishing your credibility as a business.

Tradeshow design services:

  • Versatile tradeshow display design – To me, size doesn’t matter! Whether you need a horizontal runner or a few pull-up banners of various sizes, you supply the dimensions and I’ll supply the design.
  • Complete package development – There is more to a booth’s appearance than the displays. I can help keep all of your tradeshow elements consistent—apparel, giveaways, literature, and the like.
  • Coordination with your printer – I won’t leave you hanging after the design files are handed over. I can chat with the printer and make any overlooked alterations to help ensure you’re at the show on time.

Tips for effective tradeshow display design

  • One way to compel people to read all of the messaging on your displays is to have a continued design, even if it’s broken up by multiple banners.
  • Try to leverage unique colors (without stepping beyond the guardrails of your brand) to help standout on the conference floor.
  • Avoid stock images of business people smiling. Corporate pictures like this are played out!

Evan created an avatar for me, and I couldn’t be more pleased. He was able to take my likeness from an old, faded driver’s license and create an avatar that actually looks like me. Evan’s a gifted artist and a fantastic graphic designer, and I’m delighted our paths have crossed. Thank you, Evan!

Evan is an effective communicator who successfully manages end-user needs requirements in order to deliver the desired results. He responds with very quick turn around times and has always made himself available at a moment’s notice to troubleshoot. I’d recommend Evan to anyone. Great job!

Evan was incredibly easy to communicate and work with. I am very much a beginner at this and he worked with me to develop a logo that represented exactly how I wanted to portray my company (and had creative ideas that I never would have had). I have already recommended his services to multiple potential clients.

Evan is a creative graphic designer who seems to have a knack for understanding exactly what his customer is looking for in a particular project. Evan designed a corporate team t-shirt for me which involved creating avatars for more than a dozen people. The end product was perfect and turned out much better than I expected. I absolutely plan to reach out to Evan for any future design project needs.

Evan is a communication triple threat: design, digital and social. Not only did he design a dynamic logo for my business that completely mirrored my vision, but he artfully and efficiently created my website, ensuring it was SEO-optimized and easy to use. He did all of this while advising me on my social media implications and opportunities. I can’t recommend Evan highly enough.

Evan is a Jedi-mind reader:  A skill that’s a must-have when choosing a designer. Often times, what’s written in an email to a designer doesn’t translate to a finished design. Evan was able to visually communicate what we were trying to accomplish and each project turned out BETTER than expected.

Evan’s work is something that I can highly recommend. Sent the first draft in a matter of days and delivered beyond expectations. Very skills. Such impressed. Wow.

[Evan] is extremely easy to get in touch with and knew exactly what we wanted. His costumer service game is on point… Our church has not really used graphics before, but now our website, bulletins, and signs in and around our building look fresh and up to date. Thanks for being our go-to guy for great graphics, Evan!

Evan migrated our previous WordPress (WP) site across to a new, modern, mobile friendly Wordpress site. We were surprised at how quickly Evan had us up and running on the newly-designed site, and we are now receiving a lot of positive feedback from our customers. Thank you Evan!
