Graphic a la Design – At Your Service

At Graphic a la Design, successful and impactful design is accomplished through a genuine collaboration between our clients and our team. We work together from our initial meeting about your business or brand through job delivery and beyond. By asking key questions from the get-go, our expert team will learn about your graphic design or web design needs and business goals, your competitive landscape as well as your deadlines and budget. Armed with this information, Graphic a la Design will be your partner in designing a brand that positions your company as a leader in your field and resonates with your customers.

We’ve got a proven track record when it comes to successful graphic design and web design performance. We encourage you to read our customer testimonials throughout this website, on Google Reviews and on our social media pages. Each endorsement is a bona fide reflection of Graphic a la Design’s professionalism and commitment to clients and their business success.

Did you know that the pineapple is a symbol of welcoming and hospitality? You’re sure to spot at least one or two during any visit to Graphic a la Design’s office studio. Lori, founder and owner of Graphic a la Design, has loved anything “pineapple” since visiting family in California more than 20 years ago. Lori admired her great aunt’s pineapple pendant, to which her aunt replied with a quote by Kat Gaskin, “Be a Pineapple: Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside.”

Since then, Lori has accumulated many things “pineapple” including this lamp, which was a gift from her husband. It reminded him of the idiom, “The light just goes off with creative people” — which in turn, reminds him of Lori and her intuitive sense for graphic and web design.

View any of the services pages below to see how Lori and her team can bring advantage and value to your company. Several client design and branding samples are available on our portfolio pages. We would be happy to share additional work samples with you during an in-person meeting, or over Zoom, during COVID. Due to contractual restrictions with some corporate and trade clients, we can not post all of our projects online.
