Graphic Design and Litigation Strategy 

Specializing in the Preparation of Demonstrative Evidence

Creating Clarity From Complexity in Over 3,000 Cases in More than 175 State and Federal Venues.

 

STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT:  From the start, our involvement with your case ensures you will benefit from our extensive knowledge of what has worked in past like cases and what you can anticipate by opposing counsel. The right strategy means having a portfolio of both offensive and defensive graphics.

 

Together we will take an in-depth look at the strengths and vulnerabilities of your case. We identify case themes and the demonstratives needed to communicate them. We then provide a visual communication strategy that is driven by the objective of each visual and the supporting documentation, testimony, and evidence available. This process provides trial counsel and their experts with a way to focus and organize case issues.

GRAPHIC DESIGN:  Good graphic design means making information clear, simple and persuasive, information that may otherwise remain a mass of numbers, text, tables, events or reports. Information may be presented in many ways, but there should always be a good reason for choosing the right form of presentation. In most instances, it is the material itself that will determine how a graphic will be designed.

  • PowerPoint presentations

  • Computer animation

  • Photography and video

  • Medical illustrations

  • Tutorials

COURTROOM PRESENTATION SUPPORT:  We provide in-court presentation of evidence including

EXPERIENCE

Together our team has over 30 years of experience assisting trial counsel with the preparation of demonstrative evidence. We have been involved in over 3,000 cases in more than 175 state and federal venues.

Our consultants and artists come from many backgrounds, possess various talents, and have extensive experience in litigation support. Together we create strategies and compelling graphics resulting in a presentation that engages the viewer while communicating the themes of your case.

 

Many of our designers have not always been on the Sundblom Design Group payroll. They have been handpicked from many other leading, state-wide jury consulting and demonstrative evidence companies. Our design team is not made up of “production artists”. Rather, they are a custom team of artists who bring years of proven experience both with our firm and others to every design and strategy briefing.

  

Our vast experience, impressive talent base, and our dedication to exceeding the needs of our clients makes Sundblom Design Group, Inc. a powerful resource for litigators.
