AWCNJ Kicks Off with Networking, Digital Marketing Tips, October 14

If you are in the marketing and communications field who lives in the northern NJ area (Morris, Essex, Union, Hudson counties) AND want to meet new people while learning about the latest trends in digital marketing, the Association for Women in Communications (AWCNJ) is hosting a Fall Kickoff on Tuesday, October 14, at the Morris County Public Library in Whippany, NJ.

Karl M. Stearns, President of KMS Marketing Solutions, will explain the strategy behind email marketing and how it is used in conjunction with social media. The results will be an effective connection with your community to help build the buzz around your small business or non-profit, rather than a bunch of emails and random posts on social media.

Karl Stearns is a nationally known speaker on small business topics. As a Platinum Solution Provider for Constant Contact, he is one of a handful of Authorized Local Experts who has taught hundreds of small businesses how to utilize the powerful tools of digital marketing.

AWCNJ’s Fall Kickoff will begin at 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the Morris County Public Library, 30 Hanover Avenue, Whippany, NJ 07981.

Cost is $15 for members, $25 for non-members and $10 for students with current college ID. Admission at the door is $30. Sandwiches and refreshments will be served. You must pre-register for this event here.

For more information about the event, contact AWCNJ Programming at programs@awcnj.org.

Design | AWCNJ Recognition & Networking Breakfast Postcard

As part of the Association for Women in Communications – NJ Chapter’s MarCom committee, I designed a couple of marketing materials promoting the organization’s June 8th event. The image shows two sides of a 4×6 inch postcard.

I’ll add the flyer on a later date.

Client: The Association for Women in Communications (AWC)

The Clarion Awards – hosted by AWC – recognizes excellence across all communications disciplines, including advertising, marketing, journalism, digital media, graphic design, and many more.

Marking  the 40th anniversary of the Clarion awards, AWC asked me to create three promotional items:

  • Web banner for the AWC home page (See screenshot above – Banner Dimensions: 596 pixels x 291 pixels)
  • Web banner for the entrant log-in page (Banner Dimensions: 760 pixels x 222 pixels)
  • flyer to be distributed to all AWC members and prospects.

The concept behind the design was to reflect the elegance of an awards show. The Clarion logo was provided by AWC.
