Great graphic design creates lasting first impressions.

Great design is a mix of passionate art and thoughtful business.

Our first goal is to understand your goal. What message do you want to convey? What story do you want to tell? We take years of experience in design and business, combine it with our passion for solving problems, and help you create clear visuals that communicate your story.

When ThirdSide was started, our goal was to provide great graphic design services at a budget that was within the reach of small and medium sized businesses. Over the years we have produced dozens of brand images, logos, and websites. If your brand is already established, we will carry your look into everything we create for you. That way your brand will maintain the same level of professionalism that you do.

“Design is thinking
made visual.”

—Saul Bass

Logo Design

Logo Design

Many people can sketch a picture, but only a professional graphic designer can create a business identity. A logo is the foundation of that identity. It takes a team of experienced artists and business professionals to understand how a logo can impact your business. A great logo can say more about your business than pages of text, but a hasty design can drive people away.

Whether you’re an established organization looking for a facelift or a brand new company, we can help make sure your image doesn’t recede into the crowd, in print or on the web.

Print Design

Our graphic design and print design services will help you to target your audience better and maximize your return. We have extensive experience creating memorable posters, flyers, banners, and signs that will help your company project a highly professional image. Business cards and stationery fit this category too. (We can even design packaging for your products or decals and wraps for your vehicles.)

Display Design

Display Design

Whether your business presents at trade shows or you sell from a trailer we can help you create a display that demands attention. From store signs to menus to point of purchase materials, there isn’t a whole lot that’s out of our reach. We work closely with some of the best printers and signmakers in the area to ensure your design has a high level of physical quality to match its visual quality.

Newsletter & Book Design

Newsletter and Book Design

We have designed, edited, and laid out books and newsletters for a variety of clients. Our work has been seen in Chicago Public Schools, small private workshops, and in churches and other organizations throughout the state. We can prepare print-ready versions of your materials and even help you select proper paper stock. We have relationships with local printers and printing presses to ensure the quality of your physical product is as good as the design itself.
