We are so excited to have earned such recognition for our work on our own website redesign project as well as the main events marketing piece for the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel Venue Book, a Marriott, Autograph Collection hotel. Here’s a closer look at our award winning projects.
dotCOMM Awards 2017 Gold Winner for the Website/Small Business Category*
Since the establishment of our company in 2005, Alchemi Design & Publications has kept a consistent online presence with our website and social media, maintaining our brand identity to establish a recognizable presence in the digital world. Last year, with ten years under our belt, we felt it was time for a refresh, not only to our online brand but also to the technical aspects of the code, layout and organization. In the hopes of creating an improved digital experience, we have designed our current website with a client-conscious mindset. But that’s enough of explaining… go check it out and let us know what you think. Leave a comment on the blog, send us a message on our Contact page, or hit us up on Facebook.
Alchemi can help you design a custom website for your business and services. Another example of website design work, please visit the The Wright Firm’s website.

Commitment To Their Community
Alchemi designed a new logo for the Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa’s efforts to contribute to the Chesapeake Beach community in Maryland. Giving back is important to our clients at Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa and we wanted to evoke that in the logo as much as we could. The clean lines, simple forms and oceanic color palette help translate a clear and memorable message to the viewer.

We have been busy in the new year with creating a unique marketing campaign for one of our favorite dentists, Dr. Scott Finlay. We have been writing about his latest techniques in the market since he is a pioneer and leader in cosmetic dentistry. Alchemi created a fresh branding campaign for Dr. Finlay including email marketing. This was a large undertaking since we needed to start from stratch and compile emails for different lists that not only Finlay’s office had but other businesses. Once we compiled and cleaned his lists we set out to create a new cutting edge look that was consistent with Finlay’s business goals. We feel we have achieved the overall look and first marketing projects including print and online advertising, email and public relations and look forward to progressing with this brand. Take a look at one of our monthly email campaigns. Click here!
Easter is now behind us but some people are still engaged in the Giving Season and hoping to Multiply Miracles. We were hard at work even before Easter to create a Stewardship Campaign for Woods Church that focused on the concept of Multiplying Miracles for a large community. This campaign evolved into a multiple step project starting with a new logo that conveyed the idea of giving back to the community and that our actions can come full circle. Then moving on to a three fold brochure, letterhead, reply card and envelopes. This was a great project to see in the final presentation, take a look for yourself!
For us (and we guess for most of you too) the holiday season is both part wonder and stress, especially this holiday past where the tight time between Thanksgiving and Christmas made us all feel short of time to prepare. Each year, we like to let our creative sides go wild, salute our relationships and thank all our wonderful clients by coming up with a little holiday gift. As we are a collection of graphic designers we love paper and the chance to use our hands to create things both entertaining, useful and shamefully promotional.
We like to think we are hitting the mark on these ideas every year but end up having a chuckle at some of our results. For instance in 2012 we came up with the thought to spread holiday warmth to all by sending imported European hot chocolate during what was a record warm holiday season. Last year we thoughtfully prepared an “illuminating” gift centered on a keychain flashlight and greeting card all mailed in shiny gold bubble pack envelopes. Not only did we nearly go blind stuffing the envelopes (they were shiny) all the feedback we received on the gifts was how thrilled everyone was with the envelopes with no mention of the functional flashlight. No matter – the goal is to be remembered which was mission accomplished!
