When Ink Stain Design launched in the fall of 2002, there was no such thing as YouTube, Facebook or Twitter. In fact, most people didn't even know what a blog was. While much has changed over the past ten years, our commitment to effective design, honest service, and fair prices remains the same.

Fourteen years of the Roads Report
Many of my clients don't realize that in addition to being a designer, I'm also a writer. Since 2000, I've been authoring the Roads Report column for Roads & Bridges
magazine, the most trusted source for road and bridge construction news (and also the place where I started my design career). This month marks my 14th anniversary as author of the column, which you can check out here
