LEDM serves as a 'virtual in-house creative team' for our clients. We'll make you look good, across all your media needs and wherever you want to be seen. Whether you're starting from square one or are seeking some remodeling, we've got the team in place to make it work.
Why Work With Us?
Because of what we are, and what we aren’t.
Landon Elmore is a seasoned designer with strong business acumen, and as the President of LEDM, he knows what it takes to plan and produce an integrated marketing plan across multiple media, and deliver it on time and within budget. At LEDM, we hate surprises and we don’t drop the ball, ever.
LEDM provides a ‘virtual in-house creative team’ for our clients. Which means we’re NOT going to load you up with tons of overhead costs or unnecessary and unneeded capabilities.
We believe in a phased approach to marketing and website creation (which helps us start quickly and continually refine over time), NOT a ‘built it and abandon it’ method. When you work with LEDM, you have a design and marketing partner committed to the long-term.

At its core, our process is about understanding you, what you want and how best to deliver it. This arc of understanding never stops, because we keep you consistently abreast of what’s going on. So each phase is informed by previous ones, and our ability to deliver the kind of work you want and expect is always being sharpened. It breaks down, essentially, like this:
Discovery – We talk a little and listen a lot. When it’s done, we’ll have a sense of the scope of your needs, as well as your ‘world’ (competition, research and on).
Project Quantification – Once we know what you need, we put it all down on paper in a very tight, very precise project requirements document. Insures everyone’s expectations are in sync.
Initial Design Phase – Next, we’ll present initial design directions, each based on your established input and scope. Then we simply ask that you choose a single direction to refine further.
Design Refinement – We’ll refine the chosen design through two to three rounds of refinement toward design approval/sign-off.
Production – Where it all starts to feel real. Content, photography, illustration, web development, all of built on the sturdy planks of an agreed-up strategy and direction.
