Excellent ideas. Excellent design.
Good business. Good relationships.
This simple philosophy has guided hgDesign for over forty years as we produced award-winning corporate collateral and built a reputation for innovative thinking, quality design and personal service. We are a graphic design boutique with an ad agency approach to creative work based on an art director/writer team who develop concept-driven, targeted solutions to communication projects.
At our faculty leadership retreat the book was a total hit! We placed them on the table where we spent the day, and the faculty could barely keep their hands off them… I am so grateful to hgD for your vision, your keen eye, and your partnership in this project… It has been such a pleasure working with you all, and I hope we have more projects to come.
With hgDesign, we get more than beautiful design—we get vision, project management and truly personal attention. For almost two decades I have relied on their combination of creativity and craftsmanship, for work that wins praise as well as awards.
I’m really happy that we selected hgDesign to design our visual identity and marketing materials. We couldn’t have asked for more in terms of the creativity, beautiful design and their dedication to making sure that everything was done right. The hgD team were a genuine pleasure to work with.
It was a pleasure and honor to work with hgD. You were absolutely fantastic! The creativity, experience and professionalism is obvious in this remarkable 150th Anniversary Book. It is really something to be very proud of. We had a great team and I am very grateful.
