Service Description

With 26 years of experience in the graphics arena, 2nd Floor Design offers a wide-range of design services to meet your business needs. Although 2FD specializes in Editorial design, a.k.a. magazines, 2FD provides a variety of services to include: logos, business cards, letterhead, brochures, direct mail, postcards, fliers, posters, displays, books, magazine and editorial design (did I mention that already?), newsletters, advertisements, presentation graphics, illustrations, catalogs, and much much more. Our creative and visually appealing designs run the gamut to suit the needs of the client in order to reach the intended target market. The design styles are bold and out of the box thinking, and I love getting clients who aren't afraid to break the boundaries of traditional design. 2FD is always ready for new clients. Always professional, courteous, easy to work with and loaded up on common sense.
