We are design professionals that have been working in the communications field for more than 40 years. A lot has changed. We have taken the graphics path from the “old days” of typesetting, mechanicals, and offset printing to computers and digital software. Many tasks once done by hand are now performed by computers, printing presses are being replaced by digital presses, and communication is often done in front of a screen rather than across the table.
But a lot has stayed the same. We believe in the old-fashioned practice of talking to our clients before starting the design process. Time is spent understanding their goals and objectives. Design time is as much about sitting down with pencil and paper as about sitting at the computer. We prefer to have long-term relationships rather than create one-off design projects. We want to be proud of our work and know that our clients will feel good about what we and they have created as a team. We aim to embrace that which moves our clients’ missions forward and, at the same time, cherish the values and skill needed to create enduring, distinctive work.
We are fortunate to live and work in a region that is rich with creative people. Our practice is to assemble a team of artists, writers, photographers, web developers, and printers as required by the needs and budget of each project we develop. Managing each piece, whether a business card or a complicated report, from beginning to completion ensures us that every stage of the work is done well and all expectations are met.
