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.

Fifteen 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 15th anniversary as author of the column, which you can check out here

Song Hill Winery
Song Hill Winery
is a small, family-run winery in upstate New York, hand-crafting premium red, white and sparkling wines from high-quality cool-climate grapes. Last fall, Song Hill commissioned Ink Stain Design to develop branding for the company, including a logo and bottle label design, both of which are scheduled to hit the market later this month. We say cheers to that!
