Worth 1,000+ words

A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes a photo just isn’t enough. Sometimes your brand’s story needs a personality or dynamic that goes beyond what can be shown in a photo and is best told through illustration.

Illustration has a wide variety of styles and applications, and there is a technique to fit almost any type of visual need. Illustration adds an authentic, artful touch to your message and it offers a flexibility that allows you to communicate in a vividly conceptual way.

Show, don’t tell

Graphic design is, at its core, the art of visual communication. It is the intentional weaving of images and typography into visual material that creates an impression, sells a concept, relates information, or influences opinion. The messenger, as they say, is usually seen before the message is ever heard. 90 percent of the information that we receive is visual, making it the most abundant—and most immediate—way that our brains interpret the world around us.

You have no doubt already witnessed graphic design in so many of its forms that it’s difficult to imagine society without it. Imagine shopping at a store that didn’t have a logo. Or visiting a website with no colors or pictures. Or handing out post-it notes with your phone number instead of business cards. Graphic design is a powerful tool in creating an overall image. Your image is always communicating something about your business and yourself, and that’s something worth investing in.

At Ingage, we have 40-plus years of combined experience in the practice of graphic design. We have cultivated projects from the birth of initial concept sketches to the sight of an illuminated sign, the smell of fresh ink on a brochure, or the launch of a company’s new home on the web. Our hands-on experience with overseeing production allows us to design in a way that gets you the highest impact for your dollar and the strongest foundations for long-term brand-building.

Your new brand identity

A valued brand identity doesn’t often just stumble into the marketplace and succeed. Successful brands are built from a grounded process that involves deep knowledge of the company, its values, its customers and its future. It’s a tool kit of processes, creative products and strategies that are put into action based on what the goals of the company or organization are.


We can help your organization through our effective brand building model in three distinct areas:

  1. Brand Strategy – Understanding who you are now, and where you want to be
  2. Brand Identity – Design the visual and verbal creative assets that reinvigorate the brand
  3. Brand Guidelines – Establish the parameters that keep a brand on point

Once your brand’s strategy is established, we work with you to evolve your brand identity, including: Logos, Corporate Identities, Letterhead Packages, Visual Style, Color Palette, Corporate Type Selection, Naming, Taglines, URLs, Social Media Handles and Hashtags, Personality and Voice.

Once your identity is crafted, guidelines are established to assist your brand’s management as you utilize these new tools over the lifetime of your brand building campaign and beyond.

We love building brands! We have seen over and over the excitement and success brand-building brings to companies. Services and products are clarified, employees are energized, customer satisfaction climbs, and revenues increase! It’s hard work, but we love it so much it’s at the heart of every project we take on. Let us show you how.

Ingage gears up to promote first-of-its-kind event

Ingage Advertising Agency is proud to have played a part in promoting the first annual Hats off to Horses Social benefiting the Rocking Horse Ranch’s therapeutic riding program. The agency provided digital marketing, communications and coverage for the event. Patrick Fay, co-founder and owner of Ingage, provided a personal rider testimony to attendees during the event.

The following article was published by WNCT on April 15, 2018.

First annual ‘Hats Off to Horses’ held at Greenville Country Club

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A fashion show, hat contest and auction were all on display at the Greenville Country Club Sunday for the first annual Hats Off to Horses.

Around 150 people attended the event, wearing their Sunday’s best and enjoying drinks and refreshments.

Organizer Lorri Kessler said there is no event like Hats Off to Horses in Greenville.

She said proceeds go to Rocking Horse Ranch’s therapeutic riding program.

“They service people of all needs and abilities, but beyond that, they also service volunteers opportunities with the university and through the hospital,” Kessler said. “It’s not just a program for a couple people with disabilities, it is a program for people of all abilities.”

Kessler said the event leads up to the Derby Dash Bash, the ranch’s largest fundraiser.

Derby Dash Bash is on May 5.
