Design for small business owners by a small business owner.


Gerhard Stübben

Being a small business owner is hard. I know. Not only do I run my design and illustration micro-agency, I am also a co-owner of a small publishing house named Patristica Press, where I am the head graphic designer. Without a fifty thousand dollar marketing budget, it can be hard to stand out in the always highly competitive marketplace. And sometimes it can be hard to even fit in. It's too easy to have an outdated website, cheap looking promotional materials, and a logo with Papyrus font.

But successful business owners know that marketing is never where to cut back on the budget. One 2007 study found that every dollar invested in graphic design had a 225% return on the investment; for every $100 spent, that's $225 of income. Another study found that 94% of how much customers trusted information on websites was based on how well the website was designed. If you want your business to succeed in today's competitive marketplace, you simply can't skimp on design.

That's where I come in. I love small businesses, and my passion is helping them succeed. I want your business to thrive. I want you to thrive. I can help you stand up and stand out in today's market, all on a budget that small businesses can afford.

If you want a facelift for your business, an updated website, an eye-catching logo, or an all-around rebrand to garner more attention (and make more money), please don't hesitate to contact me. I would love to learn more about you, and how I can help you do what you do best. Let's spend that $100 to make another $225.
