Intro

Graphic Design is a driving force in advertising and the creation of what can become widely-recognized brands, as in the Trademarks displayed above. Potential consumers are bombarded daily with logos, trademarks, and symbols produced by amateurs and professional graphic designers. Graphic design is everywhere. Every newspaper, magazine, product package, brand logo, website, poster, book, sign, or billboard displays some form of graphic design. Almost always, thriving companies become successful, in part, because of their wise investments in professional graphic design. Those companies that choose not to make such investments, may find it difficult to compete.

Graphic Design gives your brand a familiar face, or visual presentation that, just by looking at it, gives a sense of what one should expect of the company and its products. As global competition expands with the exponential growth of technology, the need for that eye-catching graphic becomes even more critical to a business.

Mastery of the combining of colors, shapes, objects and font styles, and their strategic placement in relation to each other, is key to creating a successful design. Even something, as seemingly arbitrary, as a color choice for a website background or a logo, is far more important than one may realize. Trained graphic designers understand how certain colors create particular moods or reactions.

Graphics are encountered in our daily lives. The proper graphic can stimulate a person to feel drawn to a product and reach out to choose it from a store shelf. Conversely, a poorly-designed graphic can create an unconscious decision that a particular product is inferior, and that it is not even worth trying. Strong corporate branding can also convey that your company is ready to compete with any other players in the market. Feel free to select the following link to view some of our WORK.

Work

Above, are only a few of my layouts which I designed for various businesses. Whether you are a small mom-and-pop business, major company, non-profit organization, or if you just want something personally done, I treat everyone with the same respect and importance.

I have been successful because I pay attention to detail, and think “outside the box,” while keeping your costs at a minimum. Many designers charge hundreds, if not thousands, for a logo design, website, or even to restore a vintage photo. One thing that makes "Designed by Marin" unique in the industry is our ability to work within your realistic budget. We also give special consideration to non-profit organizations, newly-established companies, as well as, companies in the process of formation. Your success is our success.

About

Hello, my name is Paul Marin, the owner of “Designed by Marin.” Starting at a very young age, I looked at advertising differently than most people. To me, the visual aspects -especially the colors- were of utmost importance. I remember when riding the New York subways and buses, I would spend my time studying the billboard ads. The ones that attracted me most were those that stimulated my peripheral vision. I eventually realized that it was the colors they used that actually got my attention. The copy (wording) is what held my gaze long enough to absorb what was being presented. Little did I realize that these small observances would lead me to a life long love in the field of advertising and graphic design.

With the Apple Macintosh coming into its own as the premiere graphic arts tool by 1990, I finally had the opportunity to become a graphic designer. Fast forward 27 years, I now have an extensive knowledge of marketing, advertising, graphic design, and sales.

Now, whenever I complete a project, I engage my mental checklist:
√  Will these colors be pleasing to the general public and to my client’s eyes?
√  Did the ad, logo, brochure, website design, etc... make logical sense?
√  Did it deliver its intended message?
√  Did I use the appropriate fonts (letter styles) to convey the message?

Until the answer to all these is an unequivocal, "YES", I will continue honing the project to perfection before presenting the final product to my client.

Answering "YES" to the list items above represents the culmination of my use of an extensive array of tools and talents that are unique to each particular design project. Each ad, etc... has it’s own flair of identity. This is not a one-size-fits-all graphic design company. All of my design projects are tailored to my clients' desires and their needs. In essence, my job is to transform your idea into a powerful statement of tangible reality.

Now that you know a little more about me and what I do, please select this link CLIENTS to view our showcase page for some excellent examples. Or, if you would like to know what I can do for you and that idea you've been holding on to, please select CONTACT.

Thank you for visiting!
