We’ve beeeeen very beeeeesy…
Two years ago, Lake Communicators embarked on a marketing project for the Greater Cleveland Beekeepers Association. Kathy Smith designed their logo and website and Laura Lytle wrote sparkling copy for a brochure for which Villa Beach implemented a very appealing design.
We are pleased to announce the culmination of our project with the newly printed brochure!
Keep an eye out for more Lake Communicators projects – rumor has it there will be opportunities to work on a marketing program for a new business incubator project.
