Here at BlackOut Design we recently had an opportunity to work with a group with a great mission. Over the past 28 years the Highlights Foundation has been developing and delivering curriculum that brings some of the most recognizable names in children’s literature to their campus to hone the skills of writers and illustrators of all levels. The group’s mission is to improve the quality of children’s literature by empowering those who are delivering the next great story to our children.

Recently, Blackout Design was in touch with Richard “Lee” Powers III, a recent Marywood grad and 1st place winner at the Great Valley Technology Alliance 10th Annual Entrepreneurship Institute, to help create a new website for his business: customizable turkey calls.

BlackOut Design was presented with the opportunity to design The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce eBriefs Newsletter. Our talented team was able to create a unique design as well as incorporate social sharing elements. Readers can now easily share an interesting article directly to Facebook by simply clicking a button. The benefits of such a platform give the reader an added ease of use while providing greater awareness for The Chamber and all they do for our community. We loved participating in such a terrific project and hope that you enjoy and benefit from all that The Chamber has to offer.
BlackOut Design was recently engaged by Paul Nardone, proprietor of Outrageous and Secretary of the Board for Equality Pennsylvania, to design the Annual Review for Equality Pennsylvania. Equality PA was in search of a communication piece to reflect the accomplishments and milestones of the organization as it has impacted the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania throughout the past year. We love a new challenge as well as the opportunity to learn about local organizations.
The mission of Equality Pennsylvania is to be the preeminent LGBT advocacy organization for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and work collaboratively to establish a comprehensive network of individuals and organizations united in securing equal rights for the LGBT community.
Our team was eager to assist with such a significant project. Paul suggested BlackOut Design for this task because of our commitment to our clients and our talent to deliver bold new designs. With the guidance of Paul and the rest of the Equality PA Board, BlackOut was able to properly showcase the accomplishments, initiatives, programs, issues and more in order to create further awareness of the past, present and future of Equality Pennsylvania.
BlackOut Design’s talented Art Director, Phil Barket, generously donated his time to create the poster for the “Lords of Drawtown: Drawcore Skatepark Annual Block Party”. Phil was approached by fellow Marywood instructor and artist, Ted Michalowski, to participate in this positive community event.
Lords of Drawtown will feature live mural paintings by Ted and students, skateboard competitions, music and more on July 16th and 17th. This will be the first annual block party at the Jackson Street Skatepark.
Phil created a dynamic design to draw attention to this summer event all on his own time. We are so proud that a member of our team gets to display his art in such a positive manner.

BlackOut Design has completed marketing collateral for Attorney Jason M. O’Malley’s new private practice as well as for Golden Dome Abstract, his real estate division. Through our process of design and review, we created letterheads and business cards that meet Attorney O’Malley’s vision for his law offices.
Attorney Jason M. O’Malley is a Scranton native. He attended Widener University School of Law as a means to return to his hometown with a law degree to better serve our area.

Play Fore Kids is holding an upcoming golf tournament. The committee members came to BlackOut Design for a website. The proceeds go to Marley’s Mission, whose website we also designed. We were more than happy to work with such wonderful people for such a great purpose.
Play Fore Kids is a golf event and benefit bash to raise awareness and help for the Marley’s Mission cause for kids. Marley’s Mission is a non-profit organization that provides equine-based psychotherapy (EAP) therapy to children and families who have experienced trauma. Marley’s Mission arose from the personal tragedy experienced by one local family.
The event is on Thursday, August 11th, 2011 at The Mount Airy Golf Course. Visit the Play Fore Kids website to learn more!
Facebook has become a significant element to grow your business. Few imagined that this social networking service for college students would evolve into a major platform for 600 million users to connect. Facebook is now a key online marketing tool for businesses that can drive increased traffic to your website, generate additional sales, promote brand recognition and loyalty and provide a direct communication link to your clients and customers.
Facebook now offers freedom with your profile image, fan pages and an array of apps that you can plug into them in order for you to customize what people see when they land on your page. This is now a part of the core interactive technology element for BlackOut Design. So far, we have enhanced the Facebook pages for Dropmaster, Modern Gas, One Point, and BlackOut. Check them out and let us know how we can help you to maximize your potential!
