"The best thing about working with 24 Hour Company is that I don't have to spend a lot of time explaining things to your designers, giving me more time to manage the proposal. ... There is quick turnaround on edits and good communications throughout the process. I've worked with freelance designers in the past and usually have to spend time educating them about proposal graphics. Your folks are up to speed and work as real partners in the process, making my job a lot easier."

Rise of the Infographic
presented by Mike Parkinson (CPP APMP Fellow) and Colleen Jolly (CPP APMP Fellow)
May 27th, 2014
Harness the trend of infographics: visuals (or animations/videos) that combine several bits of quantitative information into easy-to-understand audience-appealing designs, ultimately used to sway them to an opinion, a course of action or a purchase. Explore trends and underlying psychology from around the world then apply those techniques on your next bid. We will review several static and animated infographics and dissect each into 3 components:
Then build a bid-specific infographic, discussing the challenges and solutions for creating quality materials on a bid-relevant schedule and budget, while recognizing what type of information is most pertinent to share using this method. This presentation takes the concept of "regular” proposal graphics and upgrades it to the popular, modern concept of an infographic, empowering proposal audiences to transform their executive summaries and/or key concept of operations graphics through the use of quantitative data and effective visual storytelling.

Read about what our clients are saying about our pricing below—and if you need more proof, check out how our costs stack up against freelance designers right here!
"In my opinion, the real result that 24 Hour delivers is a proposal that clearly conveys to the Government (or private sector organization) that my client is committed to excellence. Considering the expense that my clients incur to develop winning solutions, it's a no-brainer to bring in 24 Hour Company to provide the effective graphics, editing and formatting that produce a winning proposal. The cost of using 24 Hour Company to provide this polish is very reasonable—especially considering the cost efficiencies gained by getting the job done right the first time while working under tight proposal deadlines."
-Deborah Kimmel, DKimmel Consulting
"I work with detail-oriented partners who are not easily impressed with most graphical renderings. When they saw what you can create after looking at our rough sketches, they were impressed! The quality of your graphics is matched by the quick turnaround you provide—along with the patience and professionalism of your staff. Compared with hiring an in-house designer, the cost is more than reasonable, especially considering your top-notch service."
-Jim Druckenmiller, Kearney & Company, P.C.
"We gave you very little to work with and from that you constructed a detailed, gripping and first-class presentation in a very short time frame. Having worked with advertising agencies in the past, we didn't expect your principals to be involved throughout the project to make sure our requirements were understood and executed perfectly. The icing on the cake was your pricing—very reasonable for the quality of your work and incredible service."
