An Introduction to Crisp Graphics

For over three decades, Crisp Graphics has specialized in state-of-the-art communication solutions.
Crisp Graphics as a company has been in business since 1985. Originally the company focused on graphic design and illustration with an emphasis in airbrush illustration and hand lettering (for logotype and custom type treatments). With the advent of the personal computer and desktop publishing, Crisp Graphics made the transition to a desktop publishing and graphic design studio. Over the years Crisp graphics has been involved in projects for advertising agencies, small businesses and large corporations.
Upon the introduction of the World Wide Web and electronic publishing, Crisp Graphics began to create web graphics along with print and other media graphics upon demand.
Our vision for the future continues to evolve as electronic media grows in prominence. Although Crisp Graphics continues to offer design services for print, our central focus and direction for the future is to concentrate on worldwide web and other multimedia design productions.

The Virtual Company
Crisp Graphics employs a unique approach to creative team work. Many modern design firms struggle to keep multiple qualified individuals on payroll. We circumvent this problem with a solution we call the Virtual Company. A loose confederation of independent creative professionals works together to see that you receive (and pay for) exactly the services you need - no more, no less.
Describing what the virtual studio is not helps to define what it is.

It is not large.
It has no buildings or fixtures to maintain.
It has no rooms full of employees to keep happy and productive.
It has no army of sales people and account executives to keep salaried.
It has no continuously growing overhead to pass on to the client business.
