Identity & Design
MM Studio, Graphic Design
SGA has worked with Michael Motley for years, if not decades. Michael’s ability to take our ideas and transform them into a compelling, clear visual identity or representation always amazes us. We have no idea how hard he works behind the scenes, but the solutions he comes up with seem so obvious and right that it often leaves us thinking: Of course! Why didn’t I think of that? It’s this ability that marks him as a true designer. Ever the consummate professional, Michael’s deep knowledge of graphic design has made us a stalwart client.

We facilitated the sale of Great Ideas! to Nancy and Bruce Cunningham. Great Ideas! already had a solid book of business, but with Nancy’s top-notch people skills and Bruce’s graphic design savvy, they’ve taken this business to the next level. Their promotional items span the range from pens to eco-sensitive shopping bags. With Bruce laboring away over his computer to optimize the images you provide, they deliver promotional items that make you look your best and spread your brand in the community.
