I Am Mandle Design

I am the Mandle in Mandle Design.

Being a graphic designer gives you a lot of creative outlets - whether it's print, web, or just figuring out funny slogans for people.  Somehow, I keep getting paid to be a smartass.  I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, who have exposed me to so many things I would have never learned about. 

This company grew out of my upstairs spare bedroom, a good reputation and friends figuring out, "oh, you mean you can design me a business card?"  From there it blossomed into where we are today.   Here at Mandle Design, Inc. I oversee the amazing output of our talented team of creatives.  I figured out long ago I couldn't be the best web designer, print design guy, and development guy all at the same time. The best thing to do is surround yourself with good people and I think I've got the best in the Quad-Cities right here at Mandle Design, Inc.

Things That Make Me Tick

I'm a Beatles fanatic.  I'm also a bit of a history and theology nerd, full of obscure facts and knowledge useful pretty much only for trivia nights.  I also pretend to know some things about wine, but really I just pick most bottles based on how cool the label is (what do you expect from a graphic designer?).  I've been blessed to be a part of a number of wonderful civic and volunteer organizations and from these groups I've formed my closest friends.  I continue to try and find ways to give back to the community via volunteering as much as I can.

Geek Speak

If Adobe created it, I'm probably proficient in it.  Also, graphic design, witty slogans and robot talk.

Featured Clients

Woodfire Grill

Our friends at Woodfire Grill wanted a dynamic site that reflected their eclectic menu and atmosphere. This site was developed over late night drinks at Woodfire with owner Toby Christianson. This site is editable via a custom content management system (CMS).

Morning Star Academy

Teaching truth, training disciples, and transforming a community is the focus of Morning Star Academy, located in Bettendorf, Iowa. With that mission in mind, we utilized a submitted design that was both practical and appealing in highlighting traditional Christian values celebrated at Morning Star Academy.

Hooah! Quad Cities

We were proud to partner with the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce on this site that's a resource for military members, veterans and military families as well as for civilians to find out how they can support our heroes. This site includes a custom content management platform used by the Chamber to edit their site, manage SEO and track analytics via a single dashboard.
