My name is Ed Ochtabienski and I am the Creative Director and Graphic Designer for EO Graphic Communications. Located in Hamilton, ON, I have served the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) for over twenty years.

My passion is to advise and work with you in order to properly fulfill your advertising needs, support and enhance your brand identity, advertise effectively and target new customers and clients using the most effective design methods. This attention to detail means the difference between a clever decoration and a piece that exceeds your initial project expectations.

I have been fortunate enough to provide graphic services for startups through to Fortune 500 companies in a wide variety of local, national and international markets. From the consultation, research and design of all types of print, digital and branding media, my focus has always remained the same… produce solutions that advertise effectively and generate measurable results.

You set excellence as a standard. Let EO Graphic Communications fulfill your graphic design, branding and advertising needs with superior, creative and problem-solving print and digital solutions.

    Creativity is a product of our mind. When you employ a graphic designer you are not only hiring them for their technical skills, but more importantly their experience, professionalism and imagination. With my experience I can provide you with the services of a seasoned industry professional.

    When looking over my list of services, please note that most print media can also be configured to be used in a digital format for posting on your website or emailing.

    Every design project is unique. In order to maximize the quality and impact of any project, it is essential that your goals, deadlines and budget are fully understood. The creative collaboration between you and EO Graphic Communications will result in dynamic and effective communications that deliver your message and achieve your advertising objectives.

    In order to ensure that every project is clearly realized, I employ a four-stage process:

    STAGE 1: Dialogue

    The first step in any project is the completion of the Creative and Project Briefs. This initial stage involves: determining your needs; collecting information about your company, products, services and demographic; clearly defining the objectives and scope of the project; identifying content and visual requirements; addressing production considerations; and the creation of a critical path including responsibilities, completion dates and budget.

    STAGE 2: Develop

    Once all relevant information has been identified the look, feel and tone of the project begins to take shape. Concepts are developed including the art direction and creation of: layouts; illustrations; photography; typography; copy; paper stock; printing techniques and/or digital requirements. At this stage, comps or mockups are presented to you for proofing and approval.

    STAGE 3: Design

    This stage focuses on the refinement of the chosen design and preparation of a revised and comprehensive version for your final approval. An ongoing dialogue with you is necessary for proofreading and correction purposes. At this time, detailed preparation of printing specifications / digital requirements are also developed.

    STAGE 4: Deliver

    After the final proof has been approved, the project takes on its final form as outlined in the previous three stages. Final, print ready / digital files are created along with a proofing copy and PDF. Print files are then submitted to the printer and, upon successful completion of the printing process, the finished pieces are delivered directly to you. Digital projects can be uploaded on your behalf or sent to you, according to your wishes.
