Working Together on Your Web Design
I hear you.
I’m going to ask you questions and actually listen to your answers; there’s no better way to figure out your challenges and find the solution that will work best for you. Together, we’ll cut through the clutter and arrive at a painless resolution.
I work with you.
I collaborate with my clients through every stage of the project. Good design isn’t just about pretty pictures and clever fonts. It’s about using visuals to deliver the message that’s most important to your organization in a way that speaks to your audience.
I focus on you.
While I have the capacity to meet all of my clients’ design, programming, branding and marketing needs, my shop is small enough to give each client individual attention. Every one of my clients matter to me and every one works directly with me. No account reps, no sales people, nothing getting lost in translation.
I am a multidisciplinary designer with over 16 years of experience. I currently reside in the Raleigh-Durham area and serve clients both locally and nationally.
From an early age, I was inspired by many forms of design and photography. My first real “paying” gig after attending Philadelphia University was working with Eurosport. What began as an interest quickly turned into passion as I continued to develop my skills in graphic design, branding and programming. There I enjoyed applying my design skills in the soccer and lacrosse fields while gaining valuable experience working with designers, photographers and the marketing team. After Eurosport, I had the opportunity to work with boutique design firms as well as larger marketing agencies. During this time, I was able to couple my design and programming skills with managing client accounts and being a direct resource for design needs, including website design, WordPress development, and other project types. Witnessing the lack of communication and a disregard for personal attention in the design industry, I decided to start my own design firm. In 2007, Doug Brown Design was created. My experience has given me a broad understanding of various disciplines of graphic design and the development of online solutions. Through one-on-one interaction, effective communication and my desire to help others succeed, I put my clients at ease as I work to solve their marketing and design dilemmas.
Outside of work, my family and I enjoy hiking, bike riding and anything that takes us outdoors. I love participating in running and cycling races with friends. Although I am far from being showcased on the cover of Guitar World, I enjoy growing as an avid guitarist.
Because I see every project as a unique opportunity to meet my clients at their—and their audience’s—point of need, I don’t have a formal fee schedule. Once we work together to review your needs, goals, and the scope of the project, I’ll create a project proposal. My shop runs lean with a focus on quality work over quantity. This helps me keep my prices reasonable and my attention on my clients.
Nice things clients have said about us
I have worked with Doug to completely overhaul our website and our multi-brand brochure. He has consistently converted our thoughts into our desired final product. Doug has demonstrated an ability to operate with rapidly changing requests, exhibiting patience and timely execution.
I went to Doug with a few ideas of what I was looking for and he came back with a design that looked better than I could have imagined. Great to work with and quick to get the job done.
Doug Brown is a great designer who I would recommend on any design project. He understands print as well as web design. Any company looking to upgrade its marketing image should hire Doug Brown Design.
Doug Brown has been involved with a wide variety of projects with the Raleigh Convention Center and Performing Arts Center. Doug has always been very creative with his approach, punctual, and has over delivered. An idea man at an incredible value. A true professional.
Doug is easy to work with and produces very high quality output with a rapid turnaround. He is very good at “nailing it” the first time, offers constructive input at all stages, and cheerfully does iterative rework when the design is being fleshed out on the run. Highly recommended.
Doug has helped my website grow and transform as my company has changed through the years. He listens to what I want and helps take my ideas and implement them. My clients tell me all the time how they love my website and that is thanks to Doug.
Professional. On Time. Creative. Just a few words to
describe the talents of Doug Brown Design.
I am very pleased with Doug Brown Design’s speed, service and outcome of our designs.

Doug Brown is innovative with design, always including the new and upcoming trends in his designs. He is thorough and adheres to the time frames of the client. He has been an excellent addition to our team here at Broadway Series South.
