About

Design with intent

aiming to build businesses

 

Thoughtfully designed communications should breakthrough, connect and sway.

norman design co marcus norman

My focus is understanding what moves consumers — ensuring communication I design comes to life in relevant ways that matter and motivate. I’ve worked with Fortune 500 companies and not-for-profit organizations and have a diverse understanding of various markets as well as my clients’ individual needs. Prior to becoming an independent designer, I developed a keen eye and deep passion for design while working at some the best design firms in Chicago.

A unique company — making a difference.

With a deep appreciation for environmental and social wellness, I have committed Norman Design Co. to B Lab standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Thanks to Marcus, the communications materials for my Frankel for Judge campaign were highly professional, appealing and easy to read. His willingness to support my campaign and turn projects around quickly were very much appreciated. In a sea of busy, political ads, mailings and flyers, our materials really stood out.

Because Marcus listens carefully and digs in to understand the audience, communication challenge and background for each project, his design solutions are thoughtful and well-crafted. He understands the pressures his clients experience and what it takes to meet tight timelines. Marcus cares deeply about each project he works on and I always look forward to the next project I can work on with him.
