Everything hinges on communications.
Your nonprofit or ministry runs on connections with donors, foundations, government agencies and the people you serve. Communications fuel connections that raise funds, mobilize volunteers, increase awareness and create change.
We help nonprofit and ministry leaders like you align, take aim and launch your communications so you consistently hit the mark and connect with the audiences that allow you to transform lives and communities.Our Work
Good Design and Design for Good
It’s vital that your branding and campaigns get the results you need to carry out your mission. That’s why every bit of copy and every design element is chosen to support your brand and the objective of the project. Of course, we love creativity and beautiful designs, but we prioritize effectiveness. Good designs are designs that work.
Brand Alignment & Development
A brand that tells your story clearly and consistently amplifies your impact. It breeds confidence with donors and the nonprofit industry which boosts donations and networking to build capacity. It increases your organization's credibility, earns wider recognition, communicates your uniqueness and strengthens donor loyalty.
Smart communication strategies help you reach your organizational goals. They are audience-focused and aligned with your mission, values, uniqueness and brand personality. We can help you develop and implement a communications plan for your audiences that raises funds, shifts attitudes around an issue, and inspires people to get involved.
What Our Clients Are Saying
- For more than 15 years, our Marketing and Communications Department has relied on Sharie for all of our graphic and design needs.…her work product has always been excellent and in line with our brand.…Personally, I have always appreciated how Sharie captures my vision with minimal direction. Her consistency is stellar, and as a woman of faith, she understands the nuances necessary for our audience. Her commitment to excellence, combined with her heart, make her a pleasure to work with.
Dawn GipsonEditor, Christian Care Ministry / MediShare
There are few graphic design organizations that one can call with rough design scope of work and the designer sends back exactly what you need. We have worked with Maxim Design for over two decades and that is exactly what they give us. They give us exactly what we need, even when we are not that precise in our scope of work. You can give Maxim a few sticks and they will make the right kind of fire for you with little input.
John LyonPresident, World Hope International
Sharie is our go-to designer because she is able to create impressive artwork that matches what we want even if we cannot picture clearly what we have in mind.…We can provide her with pieces of the puzzle, and she can put them together beautifully, harmoniously, and strategically. She has been instrumental in helping us to establish the look and feel of our organization online and in print.…I would highly recommend her to any non-profit organization – from the smallest to the largest.
Kenneth ChanDirector of Communications, National Religious Broadcasters
I have had the opportunity to work with Sharie and Maxim Design Group on multiple occasions. In every instance, Sharie has delivered on the goals we established at the beginning of the project. However, the best part of working with Sharie is not just the final product; it is the process that she used to share those projects. Through her clarifying questions and communication expertise, our organizational identity has been clarified, our message made more compelling, and the impact of our ministry has grown.
