Dandelion Design
Where ideas take root



What we believe in

There's a ton of opinions out there about what creative's role in business is, but our belief is simple: it should solve problems for the client. It's role is not just to win awards for an agency (although, that's nice too)—design and creative is meant to do a job. Whether that's changing someone's mind, piquing their interest, getting the lightbulb to go off, or to reach out and pick a product up—creative needs to work hard.


What makes us different than a typical agency

We don't have the overhead of an agency. We can scale up or scale down as you need. If you just need a brochure for your sales team, or collateral for a speaking series, it's a pretty much you and Deb. But if you want a corporate video, we'll assemble a tight team in the background. You get all the perks of dealing with the best of the best and our diverse experience without all the agency headaches and large bills.
