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.

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.

Haddon Sundblom, after whom this firm is named, is Lori Lara’s grandfather. Sundblom is best remembered for his advertising work, specifically:
The Santa Clause advertisements he painted for The Coca-Cola™ Company in the 1930s, and used by Coca-Cola™ to this day.
Coke’s Mascot Sprite Boy™.
Recognized as a major influence on many well known pin-up artists.
More than any artist including Norman Rockwell, Sundblom defined the American Dream in pictures, proved by his work for virtually the entire Fortune 500. [Among his still-living legacy is the Quaker Oats™ man.]
