Time is money in business. The last place you need to spend yours is babysitting a graphic design team.
Now, more than ever, it’s critical to work with designers who get things right the first time.
Whether you’re a 1-person start-up or a multi-million dollar corporation, we will help you realize the best possible creative strategy for your company. And when you sign up to work with Premier Designs, we become a vested “partner” in the success of your project.
Each design assignment is personally managed by company Founder and Creative Director, Michele Kasl. You never have to worry about unanswered phone calls, missed deadlines, or being handed off to a rookie account rep. We pride ourselves on meeting budgets and deadlines — while exceeding expectations — every time.
MEET THE TEAM
Michele received her BA from Kent State University’s prestigious Visual Communication Design program, and served an internship at the Akron, Ohio-based agency, Hitchcock Fleming & Associates. After graduation, she went on to work as an Illustrator for Arrow International, in Cleveland, where she was responsible for character development and advertising collateral. Her next opportunity was as Art Director for Impact Marketing, where she wore many hats as a graphic designer, account manager and freelance supervisor. Experiences at this position really piqued her interest in running her own design company. In April 2005, and with only one freelance client, she made the leap into self-employment and hasn’t looked back since.
Michele continues to fill multiple roles at Premier Designs, as Owner and Creative Director. She truly enjoys the relationships she has developed with her clients, many of whom have worked with her since the company’s inception. “That’s what sets Premier Designs apart — our commitment to our clients. We want to be partners for the long-haul, not just one or two projects. We want to make sure our clients know they can count on us for everything. Web, print, illustration… We do it all, and we do it well. And you get the personal attention that you won’t receive at a large agency.”
Andy has always loved drawing and illustration, and feels very fortunate to be doing what he loves professionally. He is a graduate of The Columbus College of Art and Design, with a BFA in Illustration and an Advertising minor.
Just one week after graduation, Andy started working for Cleveland-based Arrow International, as an Illustrator/Graphic Designer. His responsibilities included: creating original characters and game themes, designing promotional materials, training new artists, and providing technical support for the creative team. After nine great years with Arrow, Andy moved on to become the Art Director and Lead Illustrator for The RPI Group in Solon, Ohio. While at RPI, he had the opportunity to invent and illustrate original housewares to be sold at Target, Wal-Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Williams-Sonoma and Linens N’ Things. He also accepted the challenges of producing schematic artwork for manufacturing in China, designing packaging, marketing and point of sale materials and product photography.
In July, 2010, Andy signed on to work with Premier Designs full-time. He now serves as Michele’s “right hand man”, managing several illustration and print design accounts, and playing an active roll in helping grow the business.
In addition to our featured team members, Premier Designs has partnered with some of the best programmers, website developers, copywriters, direct marketers and creative professionals to meet all your design and advertising needs.
