However, there are some search engine optimization (SEO) best practices you should be following and you just may be on your way to the top.

Logo Examples

A brand board visually defines your brand with specified colors, typefaces, and an overall look and feel. As you build your company and develop other print and web collateral, the brand board helps keep all of your marketing material consistent. In the competition for brand recognition, a strong consistent brand is invaluable.

Our Process


Whether you are starting a small business or running a large one, choosing the right graphic designer to work with can be critical.  Your logo, marketing materials, and website provide your clients with a first impression, and you want it to be a good one.

Paper Patina has streamlined the design process, to make it as easy as possible for our clients to collaborate with us and get the results they are looking for.

MEET: I always enjoy meeting clients face to face, and I am happy to meet you at your office; but if time or distance does not allow for an in person meeting, we can also meet over the phone. Be prepared with your marketing needs and some examples of design styles you like. If the project will include extensive copy, such as a brochure, it is best to have a draft to provide as well.  We’ll also discuss your budget and timeline.  Two different pricing models are available, by project, or hourly. We can discuss which will work best for you and create an estimate and contract if needed.

RESEARCH & DESIGN: Once I have an understanding of your design needs I’ll do some research into your industry, what others are doing, and how I can make your business stand out from the competition.  Then I go to the drawing board to develop the best visual solution possible.

Texas International Pageant Sponsor

When the new director took over the Texas International pageant franchise, she was tasked with rebuilding the brand. The pageant needed an updated look and uniform design elements to tie the marketing and event collateral together.


To update the look, Paper Patina came up with the idea of using the pageants’ signature crown sitting on an empty throne, just waiting to have the new reining queens announced.  The clean, refined design really set the pageant apart as a leader in the industry in style, beauty, and integrity.

Paper Patina is proud to sponsor the 2014 Texas International Pageants, which showcases the accomplishments of women in their communities.  Good luck to the contestant’s at the 2014 pageant on March 16th at the Granville Arts Center!
