Based in Beverly, Massachusetts, located near Salem on Boston's North Shore, we offer graphic design, art direction, and project management services for print and digital media. Our work includes illustrated books, magazines, newsletters, catalogs, programs, annual reports, and content-oriented websites. We excel at creating designs that integrate words and images to produce compelling, well organized publications and web environments.
What sets us apart as designers is that, unlike many graphic designers, we think like editors. Design is never just about looking good, it is about reinforcing or adding a new dimension to the text, presenting an appropriate visual tone, guiding the reader and looking good.
We work with a wide variety of institutional and corporate clients on projects as diverse as financial newsletters, alumni magazines, architecture books, and institutional websites.
John has over 20 years experience as a graphic designer and art director, and has designed many award-winning publications. He was the founding design director of Experience, a career and lifestyle magazine for young professionals that was a national Ozzie Awards finalist for Best New Magazine Design. He also art directed the inflight magazine Continental; Running Times, a magazine for competitive runners; and was the advertising art director of the Boston Phoenix.
The studio also produces a variety of marketing and collateral work including brochures, direct-mail, media kits, and identities.
