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.
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.
If Adobe created it, I'm probably proficient in it. Also, graphic design, witty slogans and robot talk.
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).
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.
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.
The staff at Mandle Design are incredible to work with … their attention to our needs, as a stained glass business, gave us a web design that is both easy to navigate and appealing to look at … their assistance in setting up our ‘client login’ allowed us to be an industry leader in allowing our clients access to up to date information about the status of their projects … Chris and his staff are a pleasure and we feel blessed to have found them …
Our ads as well as our guidebooks have taken on a more modern, attractively simple and effective look thanks to Mandle Design. The staff really listen and are flexible with changes and additions, providing us with the best possible finished product.
I would highly recommend Mandle Design! Over the past few years we have turned to Chris and his staff for brochures, signs, shirts, and items to promote our events. Consistently they have come through for us with helpful and speedy service, creative ideas, and a top quality product at a reasonable price. I cannot say enough good things about our experiences with Mandle Design.
We have used Mandle Design for a number of years. We looked to them to assist us with changing and set our Branded image. Since then they have become a strategic partner of choice for us on numerous projects. From Social Media solutions to Direct Mail to Graphic Design, this team of talented individuals meets or exceeds your expectations every time your work with them.
Mandle Design was an excellent collaborator on our branding team. They listened, provided expert feedback, and met our difficult deadline without sacrificing quality. We are continuing to work with them as we implement our new brand.
Mandle Design rocked my world!
From the beginning of the creative process to the end Mandle Design exceeded expectations. They understood the end goal and intent of our project, as well as the market for our new brand and content. I was new to the role of website manager and they helped to explain to me what they were doing and why, with statistical evidence to back-up their reasoning for all aspects. With a demanding timeline, I was impressed at the level of creativity and flexibility to make (nearly constant) changes. I am thankful for their customer-service and willingness to give advice and feedback when I need their help.
