What inspired you to start your own business?

I began my career at Lotus/IBM in 1998 after graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. At Lotus I worked under the guidance of a fantastic art director – as well as other designers – that I learned so much from, some of whom I still work with today. I was just starting out at the time, so I was asked to do a lot of the grunt work that the other designers didn’t want to do such as archiving projects and preparing presentation boards. Fortunately, however, I also got the opportunity to help designers with branding guidelines, designing websites, creating tradeshow graphics, as well as designing other various printed material.

During the few years I spent at Lotus, it was a difficult time to be working because of the dot com burst. Then in 2001 there was 9/11 and eventually our whole department was let go by 2003. Before I left Lotus, I was introduced by my art director to a company called Stormship. I began contracting with them shortly after leaving Lotus, helping their team with Flash animations and other print and multimedia projects.

As a new freelancer, I interviewed with most of the top Boston area design studios. I constantly called for interviews, applied for contracting work and sent resumes to as many companies as I could. There were some projects that I knew may not be a good fit, nevertheless I always felt that any interview would be good practice with the potential to lead to new opportunities. I never turned any work down. If there was something I didn’t know I would learn how to do it or hire someone who did it better than me.

After building up a few consistent clients, I decided to officially start my own company. I am now sharing office space with the first design studio I contracted with, Stormship. Today, most of my work is through word of mouth referrals. I have been working with many of the same clients that I started out with when I first went on my own back in 2003.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are have a professional and trustworthy reputation that we have developed over the years. We have been working with many of the same clients since back in 2003, and we make it a point to treat every customer, big or small, like they are our only ones. Being able to do creative work that our team can feel proud of is equally important to us as being able to meet our clients’ expectations, on time and on budget.

As well as winning numerous amounts of awards!

Graphic Design FAQs

Expand all

Having fantastic visual design can really change how your audience (or customers) view you. In fact, great graphic design goes way past just making things look good. As well as a strong visual impression, brilliant graphic design enables you to amplify your efforts and get your message across in a way that will make people take notice.

Making the correct first impression is vital. With great design principles, you can create an image of your company that stays in the mind of your audiences. Add to this a consistency across all of your materials, and you will quickly be able to build trust in your brand. As well as communicating with your audience visually, you’ll be able to convey your values. Things like having a well-defined logo can be the first step towards perfect brand recognition.

It is well known that we are very visual creatures. Having the right content, designed in the right way, can really encourage your audience to learn more about your business. Being able to express ideas visually can also help to break down complex content that can be difficult to get across with words alone. This combination of benefits allows you to build a great relationship with your audience over time. This can transform into growth for your brand or increased revenue (depending on your goals).

When it comes to choosing your graphic designer, make sure you are clear as possible about what you expect from them. It’s best to write a detailed brief with background, details and timelines on your project. Giving them the relevant background information will attract the best talent possible for your brief.

Make sure to share details about your company, what you wish to achieve and any qualifications you think are necessary for the role. Explain any deadlines and things they may have to work around to make sure their understanding of the job is as comprehensive as possible.

It can also help if you understand a little bit about design yourself. Without going into too much detail, you can research what skills you would need for a particular job. After getting your head around some fundamental concepts, you can ask your candidate some questions to see how they respond.

This could be about past work they’ve done, or it could be about something you are wishing to create from scratch. This will give you a good idea of how they come up with solutions. You may even assign a trial project to complete – as long as this trial is paid for.

Talking to your potential designer on the phone is also useful. This way you can get a great understanding of how you will communicate together and whether you see eye to eye. Be sure to ask your candidate what they will need from you as well. This will help your project to go smoothly and result in the best possible outcome.

The different kinds of graphic design and their complexity will greatly affect how much you can expect to pay. Graphic designers create a huge array of content – from posters and flyers to websites and logos. Some of these graphics are used for film or TV, while others find placement within ads. Graphic designers mix both skill and creativity, while also being able to communicate with clients in an effective manner.

In a word, yes! Graphic design can be carried out remotely, so as long as you're able to discuss the brief with your expert over the phone or via video chat, then you're good to go.
