We are a Chicago-based graphic design firm

We believe that graphic design is about more than just being pretty. It’s about purposeful use of pictures, illustrations, and layouts to sell ideas, products, and services.

Our design process focuses on creating results-oriented end products. At ArtVersion, we design our brochures, catalogs, and other marketing collateral to be more than just handouts; they are educational and sales tools created specifically to communicate the story and take your company to the next level. We use innovative graphics mixed with intuitive and professional layouts so that the marketing collateral we create will turn readers into customers and customers into fans.

Our Process

  • Identify the purpose of collateral
  • Discovery phase
  • Research to gain a focused understanding
  • Develop custom images and graphics
  • Convey your message and philosophy
Our Process

Chicago Graphic Design Firm

At ArtVersion, we do things a bit differently from other design agencies. We love diving right into the creative process and getting our curiosity fulfilled. Our focus is on creating purposeful designs for the projects we undertake. For us, it’s not just about finishing the project at hand – it’s about figuring out how it fits into the bigger picture and this leads us to get involved with all other areas of a company from the internal corporate structure, advertising initiatives, to the marketing and branding.

We like making our clients an integral part of the process because it helps us get at our craft while also allowing us to think bigger and innovate together. We bring in our Chicago-based clients regularly to our collaborative space so they can be a part of the creative process. We share what we’ve accomplished, and brainstorm new strategies for their businesses. This results in a better outcome because it feeds our creative process and opens the door to many more possibilities and bigger visions.

For example, when we take on graphic design projects, we don’t just focus on creating a suitable design. Our team starts the discovery phase that leads in to a creative process by contributing ideas on what could make the biggest impact. The best way to describe it is that while other design firms run a project through an assembly line, we like to run it through our entire collective.

When working on a visual branding, rebranding, or print and marketing collateral assignment, we like to dig deep into the company’s culture and try to fully understand the business, target market, products, and services. Our Chicago creative team often works with the internal company marketing departments to come up with creative concepts that represent their efforts. With smaller companies, we work with the CEO or Founder to align our ideas with the goal of the company.

We love the challenge of developing a creative direction that actually produces noticeable results in a company’s bottom line. We’re passionate about what we do and we’re thrilled when our clients come back to tell about the success they’re having with our work. What makes our creative agency really special is how integrated our team is. Creating work that we can all be proud of is paramount to everything else. We wouldn’t be capable of producing such successful projects if our whole team didn’t believe in that. If you’d like to experience our creative process yourself, get in touch so we can schedule a time to get together, talk, and have a fun project kick-off.
