Meet The Conductor + The Catalyst

Mike Skubovius

Conductor of Creativity

What can I say? It makes me sound like I should be a cool comic book character.

Mike Skubovius
Conductor of Creativity
The word conductor has many definitions, just as my job title is defined by many responsibilities. I see myself as a medium between a vision in your head and reality ⎼⎼ hence a conductor. A conductor of an orchestra is responsible for presenting a form of art to the masses with flawless precision; as I am responsible for presenting your brand through marketing. A train conductor is responsible for schedules, order and organization; as I am responsible for meeting deadlines and making sure you receive materials on time. All three definitions of this word directly relate to my day-to-day duties.
I’ve been in the design field since 2008. I’ve sampled the industry with a few jobs here and there in a variety of settings. I’ve taken that experience and analyzed it; figuring out what works and what doesn't. I decided to take that knowledge and go into business for myself. That’s the way my old man did it and you know the old saying, “like father, like son”. Family life and owning my own business take up most of my time but when I have a moment to myself I enjoy Pittsburgh professional sports, surfing YouTube, camping, music and addictive free-to-play mobile games.

Client Catalyst

She provides the support and glue that keeps the train chugging and the orchestra in tune. From the

minute details to final proposals and interfacing with clients, she manage the less creative side of things.

"A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well."

Jeff Bezos
What do businesses, organizations, events and products all have in common? Branding! Basically, it tells anyone who wants to know everything you represent or stand for in a three seconds or less ⎼⎼ or should anyway.
While the logo is the statement maker, it relies on an ensemble of elements such as fonts, image styles, tones and colors just to name a few. It’s imperative to take the time to develop each aspect so the brand, as a whole, can project loud and clear to succeed.

“There are three responses to a piece of design — YES, NO, and WOW. Wow is the one to aim for.”

Milton Glaser
Some people think that print is dead. I didn't attend any funerals, did you? Publications are still in circulation, business cards are still handed out and direct mail still shows up in our mailbox; wether we want it or not. Print design can take many forms, anything from simple postcards and flyers to
thick catalogs and multi-piece sales packages. Print places your message in the best place possible ⎼⎼ right in your customer's hands. We can provide you with the most effective print design at the best price possible. If it goes through a printer, we can take care of it for you.

“Good marketers see consumers as complete human beings with all the dimensions real people have."

Jonah Sachs
We’ve already talked about branding, now meet the other half of the success process ⎼⎼ marketing. Think of it as constant maintenance to keep your brand performing at maximum efficiency. With the marketing industry moving so quickly, it’s hard to keep up with trends and customer behaviors.
If you are a small business, you are wearing so many hats that tasks like Search Engine Optimization (SEO), stat collecting and social media management fall through the cracks. We can help by putting together a strategy that has tangible steps to grow a customer base and expand your brand.

“Great web design without functionality is like a sports car with no engine.”

Paul Cookson
With each passing day, technology grows more and more prominent in daily life. So naturally, digital design has become one of the preferred methods of marketing. Digital design can be transmitted and reproduced easily and consistently, perfect for building brand recognition.
So take your digital marketing to the next level with a strong digital presence. Some of the digital design services we offer include front-end web design with basic web development, email newsletters, custom social media banners, video production, digital photography and digital artwork.
