Industry: Agents and Representation
Design on Edge is a boutique design and marketing company. As a team, we strive for the absolute best in cutting edge design, marketing and business identity. Our goal is to build better relationships between the business owner, organization, individual and the consumer through strategic marketing and one-of-a-kind corporate branding. We are collaborative problem solvers who listen to our clients’ challenges and find smart and creative solutions.
Collectively we have worked as creative directors and graphic designers for a number of unique companies ranging from advertising, media-buying and event promotion to signage, apparel, blueprinting, architecture and casino marketing. When the economy started to shift, so did our industry and we saw a prime opportunity to launch a unique boutique style company that could cater to the tourism industry, small to midsize companies and non-profit organizations. When the company was formed in 2007, we began working with small businesses that needed assistance in the full scope of brand development and marketing strategies. This is where we started to develop relationships, influence peers, collaborate with other partners and provide positive results. Within the first two years, our smaller clients had not only doubled but they tripled in size and space in a time when most companies where shutting down. We worked with local non-profits and media groups for creative cross-promotion, donated media and outreach opportunities. Since the beginning, nearly 100% of our projects have been referral based and our client list has grown substantially.
