With so much experience over a broad spectrum of the design field, we are able to step in at any stage of the process and deliver uniquely effective and beautiful designs without losing sight of your quality, deadline or budget needs.

nonprofit fundraising

Our team has a decade of experience designing direct marketing campaigns for organizations such as CARE, Defenders of Wildlife, and New England Aquarium. We have worked with small nonprofit organizations and agencies supporting the nonprofit community.

print & prepress

With over 15 years of experience in print design and prepress preparation, we make sure every detail is attended to. We have a great deal of experience in knowing how graphics will look once printed and we work to ensure your collateral looks awesome long before it reaches the printing press.

presentations & RFPs

Working in the government and nonprofit sectors, our team has created attractive and effective graphics for printed and digital presentations. We have designed layouts, graphics, icons, mock-ups and illustrations for new business proposals, resulting in new business acquisition and increased revenue growth for our clients.

email and web graphics

Email design that perfectly conveys your calibrated message or sales pitch, unique and expressive web banners, icons, buttons or layouts-–we can help you with your web graphics to make your marketing hit the right note every time.

marketing & advertising

We conceptualize and design print ads, social media graphics, web ads and any other promotional materials you need to ensure your project’s successful and timely performance. Our familiarity and experience with market-specific design and advertising makes us another valuable member of your team.

logos & branding

We create custom logos that communicate the unique identity of your brand. To do this effectively, we learn everything there is to know about the brand, its audience and its goals. We then craft several choices to present to you and we evolve and fine tune the best logo choice through close consultation with the brand's owner(s). Fern Hill Creative has a database of 1,500 logos and logo design elements.
