Welcome, Friends of Design

Congratulations! You have come to the right place!

Logotype, branding, corporate image, catalogue, direct mail, fundraising, broadcast, Don is a designer you can count on!

Don's philosophy of design is a culmination of his God-given ability, finely honed to skills with more than three decades experience in the trenches, communication theory and practice coupled with good English (a gift from his parents), and a vast list of satisfied clients who have used Don's prolific creative output to build their businesses. That comes neither out of a box, nor without a price.

Good design comes at a cost — but it pays handsome dividends.

Don's award-winning work has been honored by the Washington DC Achievement in Radio (AIR) Awards and the Maryland/Delaware/DC (MDDC) Press Association Awards, and has appeared in nearly every major-market newspaper in America, as well as numerous national weekly newsmagazines, local/regional radio and on regional and global satellite/cable TV.

Don Garlock has been designing professionally since 1973 and invites you to browse these pages for a small sampling of his work. Don is also one of those rare animals who can deliver a complete package: from concept to completion.

Performance You Can Count On

Don understands deadlines. And production. And budgets. He has learned to deliver superior creative work product and see it through to fruition or implementation with remarkable responsiveness and turnaround. Don welcomes your inquiry on your next project.
