“In the short time Bikes, Blues, & BBQ has partnered with Aponi Studios, our social media efforts have increased by over 50%, which is tremendous for a four day event once a year! Our Facebook page grows daily and the creation of the blog, Roads to the Rally, has given our fans another interactive platform to share their experiences, thus keeping them more involved in rally news and marketing. One of the most important differences Aponi has made is the improvement of the satisfaction of our sponsors. We have received several compliments from our sponsors about the rally’s social media efforts and rightfully so, as it provides them with not only more exposure, but better impressions to boot.”

It’s true that every situation is different and calls for a certain theme to be considered. We try to be flexible and take these circumstances into consideration while creating your website and marketing materials. A product flier might be best served as simple and clean, a professional presentation without much distraction. Yep, we can do that!
On the other side, we definetly enjoy creative freedom to turn your event flier or website into an elaborate visual experience with loads of creativity for your viewers to enjoy. So, consider the situation and feel free to be as fun as you want to be!
GOOD PHOTOGRAPHY KEY TO YOUR SUCCESS
A great number of Aponi sites and materials are created with photography we have shot, so if you happen to be in the NW Arkansas area we can offer professional photography to help enhance your site or marketing materials. However, your photography can be provided by a professional in your area or if you have a knack for it, you can provide it yourself.
Stock photography is a third option and can definetly provide just what you need in the moment. Above all, the images used on your site or in marketing materials should be of the highest quality as they project an image of your business.
“Creative genius. Phenomenal. I could never have described who I am better than Aponi did through my website, social media graphics and marketing materials.”
Mark Peterson, Dusty’s Adventures
From simple and clean to wildly artistic
Aponi Studios is a freelance web design, photography and graphic art studio located amid the beautiful Ozark Mountains of NW Arkansas on a 60 acre homestead, Baron Fork Ridge.
Owner, Laurie Harris, has worked in the area of marketing and web design since 1998. Leaving the corporate field in 2006, she began operating freelance on a full time basis and has continued ever since. In addition to design and marketing, Laurie has spent more than 15 years as an event and commercial photographer, primarily within the equine and motorcycle fields. She has served as director of social media for several large scale national and international businesses over the years including Bikes, Blues and BBQ, Cavallo Horse & Rider, ACTHA and Sport and Trail Magazine. She spent almost 10 years at the University of Arkansas’ Department of Animal Science heading marketing and web design for the Equine Program.
Aponi photography, ads and articles have appeared in many major publications including Horse & Rider, Horse Illustrated, Western Horseman, Savvy Times, Equus and numerous regional and breed association magazines. Aponi photography has also appeared in several motorcycle publications; Easy Riders, Ultimate MotorCycling Magazine and on many covers, including a Southwestern Bell phone book.
“Simply stated, Laurie Harris is an artist. She has utilized her artistic flair to promote the Equine Program and the Animal Science Department. She routinely develops marketing plans and strategies, determining the best way to maximize exposure for an event. In fact, many times, she has creatively recruited outside sources of funding for promotions. Look no further!”

“I strongly recommend Laurie Harris and Aponi Studios for any job that requires creativity, quick thinking, great marketing skills and a pleasant demeanor when working with people. I’ve had the pleasure working with Laurie as I have contracted her studio for three websites, a blog, marketing materials, business cards and photography. It has been a long and productive relationship from my perspective.Laurie is extremely adept at communicating her vision on each site in ways that I’d not anticipated, yet soon adopted and embraced. Laurie is efficient and effective in her professional role; any company that hires Laurie will find their money well spent.”

“Laurie Harris has answered Bikes Blues and BBQ’s need for “all things internet” in a huge way. Her website acumen and artistic eye combine to create a site that any business can use to present the most effective marketing tool imaginable. In the realm of social media, Laurie’s efforts quickly generated over 60,000 Facebook “friends” in a brief time utilizing innovative strategies that we never imagined. So, website presence and social media combined, you have the complete package, guaranteed to increase awareness and, most importantly, sales. We could not be happier with her work.”
