Entering into its second decade of business, Alchemi Design & Publications, a full service graphic design and marketing company in the Annapolis, Maryland area, continues to be an industry leader and is growing its client base with expanded services.
Since Alchemi's founding in 2005, the firm has specialized in the design and publication of high-end books and marketing materials for venues with exceptional locations and services for weddings, receptions, and other special events. These venue books are produced at no cost to the venue and replace costly, multi-paged information packets with large format, color brochures that, on average, increase overall revenue for both the facility and its featured vendors. Current clients include: The Annapolis Waterfront Hotel - a Marriott autograph collection, Historic Inns of Annapolis, Georgetown Westin, Lighthouse Sound, and others.
Recently, Alchemi has successfully expanded its publications to include partnerships with county tourism offices to highlight destination weddings and other services. By marketing an area as a key wedding destination, the unique attributes of the county are highlighted and local businesses benefit from an increase in potential clients and visitors. Current partnerships include Cecil, Garrett, Harford, and St. Mary's counties and the Lower Eastern Shore, all in Maryland.
Alchemi Design's Principal, Meagan Connolly and her tight-knit staff are proud to receive accolades for their work in the tourism sector. The Maryland Office of Tourism awarded Alchemi with the 2016 "Cultural, Heritage, Sports and Culinary Tourism Award" for the Visit Harford! Restaurant Guide and the Maryland Tourism Coalition awarded the company with the "Best Printed Promotional Materials Award" for the Cecil County Wedding Destination Book. Says Greg Pizzuto, Tourism Director for Visit Harford!, "Alchemi Design & Publications was able to create a county- wide piece in a short pre-determined timeline. With great customer service and organization, Alchemi produced a unique and superior piece. We would be excited to work with Alchemi Design on future projects."
Published destination books are available at walktheaisleweddings.com, a stylish weddings resource and directory website targeted to the mid-Atlantic region, created by Alchemi Design. This service is a benefit for engaged couples as they look for vendors and venues in the area and provides added benefit to Alchemi's supporting organizations and advertisers.
In addition to its work in the wedding and tourism market, Alchemi continues to create corporate identity packages and marketing strategies for companies in various industries. Alchemi Design recently became a Google Partner for online advertising and develops dynamic, unique, and effective marketing and advertising through impactful logo design, business cards, brochures, billboards, website design and other materials for digital and print media.
