Research & Planning
Many times companies come to us with a specific idea of what they want, based on a Compendium product they’ve seen. But when they come with a specific challenge and the question “What do we do?” we apply our unique market insights, interviews with key stakeholders and other in-depth methods of discovery to develop just the right concepts and plans that integrate these with our expertise in consumer behavior, culture and organizational development.
Traditional commercial design takes on a different form than retail product design. Creating a gift book is a departure from designing a brochure. Compendium’s design team, though, has experience in both disciplines, allowing us to craft business communications that deliver a marketing message in a style, and with the impact, of a gift.
Books are a powerful media. Compendium is one of the leading publishers of gift-books in the United States, selling hundreds of thousands of copies each year. Because we control all elements of intellectual property—from design to content—of our gift products, we frequently license and modify our content for companies seeking to utilize existing titles, designs and messaging.
In addition, we’ve developed an unparalleled ability to help companies communicate more effectively through creation of their own books.
If you can imagine it, we can make it. Compendium has developed global expertise in the manufacture and assembly of gifts or promotions—created using a wide range of media. Whether you’re looking for paper-based solutions or ones made from laminate, fabric, metal, wood—or a “kitted” combination of several—we’ve done the legwork so that our customers shine. We deliver on time, and on budget, at costs that not only thrill but surprise even the most experienced production managers.
Experienced at distilling complex messaging into bite-sized nuggets, our copywriters have one thing in common: a talent for connecting with people both emotionally and personally, and for moving people to action. Our lead copywriter has 35 years of experience, and is the author of more than 50 books. We couple that skill with our 100,000-plus quote database to develop our unique style of inspiring communication.
