Marketing Department launches Design Department for small businesses and small budgets

HOUGHTON Not every small business needs big marketing plans and research programs. Oftentimes a professional looking, well designed logo, website, brochure or ad can do a lot to improve the image of a small business.

Now small businesses, start-ups and non-profits have access to Upper Peninsula Marketing Department’s talented, efficient design team with launch of their new division- the Design Department.

“Last year we conducted a small business survey to determine the marketing needs of local and regional businesses. From the more than 100 survey participants we learned that small businesses felt they couldn’t afford marketing services,” Chief Marketing Officer and Principal Karyn Olsson said. “When we took a closer look at the data, what it boiled down to was the need for high-quality design.”

Graphic design is important to every business in that it not only makes something look good, it organizes information to help deliver a message in the most impactful way possible. The design team at MD Inc. is exceptionally talented, not to mention efficient, in developing creative design and marketing ideas that far exceed businesses’ expectations.

MD Inc. proudly supports local businesses by working with printers and vendors in the community. Clients receive all the benefits of a one-stop marketing shop with quick turn-around time on projects.

MD Inc. Art Director Sam Flora said, “Our philosophy is built around teamwork working together to create unique results for clients. From the initial brainstorming process to completion, every member of our creative team has a hand in the outcome.”

No job is too big or too small for the creative team at MD Inc. Whether it’s a sign outside a business’s door, website revamp or a logo, the Design Department has the talent and capability to make it happen.

Karyn and her team have spent over a year developing a rate card that is affordable for small organizations and small budgets.
