Marketing Terms and Conditions:
Advertising in our publication will not guarantee you a job. However, with 1000 premium copies x 2.5 pass along rate, your brand could be in the hands of over 2,500 potential clients. Any jobs where the client connects and hires you for a job is a great return on your marketing dollars. If we call from Christian Hill Studios and include your services in one of our marketing packages, either you the creative, or the client will be responsible for paying a 19% management fee (if applicable. Based entirely on contract with our client and will not apply to every job.) 

Every paid partner will receive 10 complimentary copies of the magazine. Non paying marketing clients can receive a complimentary copy or purchase up to 25 copies. The Best of Lowell Award Winners will all receive a complimentary copy and can purchase up to 25 copies for sale at their location. The rest of the copies will be directly delivered to businesses in Lowell, Chelmsford, Andovers, and some in Boston. 

Sales of advertising spots are final and non-refundable. Proofs will be sent to all represented members for approval and we are not responsible for ads that may contain any incorrect information after final approvals. We will however do our best to make sure THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN. 

In closing, a word to the design community... When you walk through the downtown, and you see a business that looks like it could use your services, it's because they do. It's our job now to transform Lowell and we plan on doing that by providing top level marketing services with the ability to meet any budget. We can't do it alone though. Every can design for Lowell. And we are always working on creative projects in the lab so you may get a call to come in. Your duty, as an agent of design justice could end up in collaborative projects that build economic growth. Together we can design a more beautiful future! 

Email Cam at with any questions or call at 978-697-2250. Our new downtown office allows us to meet at more convenient locations if needed. Thanks everyone!

I randomly bumped into a friend's new project on Facebook called Poder (Power in Spanish) Leadership Institute in Lawrence MA. Within a couple hours, we had a brand new, iconic logo that had excellent input from the client, and it all happened over texting over drafts directly. I highly recommend developing a relationship with the client that is comfortable enough to push this form of communication. It saves so much time. More from them as we get it. Until next time...
