About Us

Designers for the Arts specializes in graphic design services for arts organizations and venues — including exhibition graphics, event collateral, artist catalogs, books, newsletters, magazines, advertising, web, and branding.

Jobs Big and Small

We can accommodate any design project, whatever the scope. Need a title-wall graphic or a business card? We can do that. Need a coffee-table book or multiple pieces of collateral for a major event? We can do that too.

Fast, Flexible, Friendly

We are experienced in the special needs of cultural and educational institutions. Working with production vendors is our specialty, so we can shepherd your project from beginning to end.
