We Build Partnerships

At Ranpak, we were looking for a local, experienced agency to support our growing, strategic marketing needs.  After discussions with several candidates, we chose Diane and Design Edge.

The result?  We got more than we bargained for — we’ve actually found a strategic partner.  Diane and her team are more than just designers, they’re a marketing “Swiss-army knife” tackling all aspects of a project: brainstorming, creative platform, audience segmentation, concepts, copywriting, vendor identification, the list goes on.  If you want a dedicated outside team to proactively handle ALL facets of your marketing project, there’s no better boutique agency in Northeast Ohio than Design Edge.

“As an entrepreneur and business owner having the right resources is critical to our success. Design Edge has proven to be the right partner for our branding and graphic needs. Diane and her team have created the branding and packaging for our new products.  Each time they were able to take our vision and consumer insights and translate them into an effect package for both retail and the internet.  In addition to being creative they can also handle the mundane but needed projects as well.  With very tight time lines they were able to create over 500 pieces of unique line art. They understand our business and have proven to be the right partner over and over again.”
