- From Chuck Chugumlung, Graphic Designer and Online Advertising Guru-

Designer's Spring Is Here!
We've already had and incredibly busy first quarter of this year. With a steady climb in the economy, marketers are projected to spend more this year on online advertising than on traditional advertising in print magazines and newspapers. Let us help you with your next digital media marketing campaign. Catch up on what's new in our portfolio on the website. We are excited about our progress and we're still looking forward to a great year ahead. We love referrals, so forward this newsletter to anyone interested in excellent design services. You can also subscribe from our website at

Designer's Spring is finally here at last!

If you have a color printer and some scissors and glue, don't forget to download our dodecahedron paper model 2012 Calendar! Yes, they are a bit of work, but they look great. And you can tell your friends you made it!
Go to and click on "Printables." It's fun and useful!
