Service Description

Sole Source Design is a small creative shop. Most projects can be completed using my sole expertise, leveraging a diverse skill set for any design project. For projects with a larger scope or that require special needs, I am fully networked with a community of talented, passionate print and web designers. Our tenacity combined with your company’s expertise are what create successful design solutions.

Sole Source Design provides full-service design solutions. Professional expertise includes brand identity packages, logos, advertising, direct mail, brochures, presentations, book cover design, illustration and website design.
