"In the Know" Weekly Newsletter - The International School

Auction Sponsor Feature: Topaz Design

TIS parent, Kat Topaz, founded her nationally recognized strategic design firm Topaz Design in 2000. Located in Northwest Portland, the firm originally focused on print media. Today Topaz Design offers full-service marketing and branding work to help companies stay competitive. They are as likely to re-imagine a magazine layout as they are to help their clients create mobile apps, email blasts, and well-designed websites.

Top local and national companies have sought out the creative expertise of the team at Topaz Design to kick start a marketing campaign or energize their brand. A sampling of their portfolio of well-known local clients includes big names such as The Oregonian’s Mix Magazine, Wordstock, and Hotlips Pizza. Around the country, Topaz Design has worked with San Francisco Bay Guardian, Boston’s Weekly Dig, and Harvard University.

Even with a full line-up of clients coast-to-coast, Topaz Design always makes time to take on one more project close to home. Kat and her team created the first In The Know school newsletter, and created it weekly for many years. For the past 11 years, they have helped create whatever auction materials we need. And, as Gold Level sponsors for many years, Topaz Design helps ensure that all of the funds raised at our auction can benefit the students and teachers at TIS.

Thank you, Kat Topaz and Topaz Design, for once again helping to make this year’s auction such a success!
