Who We Are – Dale Design

From our studio in North Carolina, Dale Design has spent the past three decades solving problems, taking on interesting design challenges and (we’re pleased to say) meeting the needs of a broad range of clients. Updating a logo or creating an entirely new brand identity? Sure. Producing brochures, websites and exhibits? Of course. Constructing a piece of furniture, a site-specific sculpture or a completely updated home interior? That, too. Simply put, we’ll work with you to create exactly what you need. And bring it to beautiful, functional life.

“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.” Steve Jobs

A team

Dale Design     +     Client     +     Vendor     =     Success

We bring our creative talents, extensive experience, strategic insights and production savvy. You bring your project, knowledge, goals and unique perspective. Carefully selected specialists join us as necessary to complete specific functions. Yes, it’s more art than science, but we’ve learned that it can add up to something pretty remarkable.

A beginning

After deciding a career in professional soccer wasn’t in my cards, I turned a part-time job at a small print shop into full-time employment. Like it was yesterday I remember my first step in the direction of design – knowing I had a background in art my boss approached me to design a logo for a client. “First question I asked myself: what’s a logo?” By the end of a decade, after a thorough education in the design world of Washington, DC, I discovered my true passion: creating and building just about anything you can lay your hands or eyes on. Looking for a place to pursue that passion and raise a family we discovered a thriving design community in Raleigh, North Carolina — so we packed everything, made the move and set up shop as Dale Design. The rest is history.

A track record

Awards aren’t the most important thing, but it’s nice to be recognized — and even better to have a way of demonstrating our commitment to both the quality of our craft and the impact of our work.
