Evenson Design Group (EDG) is a full service market development, branding and design firm with a passionate commitment to sustainability. We have been creating enduring brands for more than thirty years and are committed to serving a community of like-minded companies that authentically strive to express sustainability in their business strategies, brand identities, and visual messages.
We believe that integrity is the common denominator of all sustainable systems and brand design is no exception. The integrity of our work shines through in our ability to develop exceptional brands and marketing campaigns which produce long-lasting results in the marketplace without imposing harsh and enduring effects on the fragile world we share. To that end, EDG moves way beyond basic energy saving practices within the workplace. We are committed to inspiring and educating our clients about alternative ways of communicating their products and services and providing them with fresh and exciting options that will propel their brand to new levels of success and sustainability. We come full circle as we assist others in reaching their goals. In doing so, we broaden our dedication to sustainability and raise the bar to our own environmental education, awareness and practices.
The ability to help companies—large and small—achieve their business development and marketing goals in a sustainable way requires unique skill. Accomplishing this with efficiency begins with the perspective that in order to grow and succeed in today’s ultra-cluttered business environment, we must strategize, leverage and synchronize every business opportunity available. We focus on providing clients with insightful assessments, fully integrated solutions and assistance that draws upon a full gamut of business, marketing, and creative talent for this new sustainable business climate. The EDG team of experienced, bright and skillful designers, copywriters, programmers, project managers and brand strategists, employs a “marketing first” development methodology to meet the unique challenges of every project we undertake. Before we even dive into the design process, we first enlist the expertise of our market and brand strategist, a multi-disciplined business development consultant with handson expertise in both high-profile and start-up consumer packaged goods, lifestyle brands, and service organizations. Grounded in strategic business planning, every project then comes to life as we move through the creative process.

You were able to deal with our internal design committee and their diverse opinions. Your ability to face this difficult project and achieve our objectives is indicative of the creative and high quality work you produce. Your integrity, experience, and professionalism helped formulate an excellent result and working relationship.“ —Thomas Spear, President, Property Management Associates
”The pieces you designed for us communicate a valuing imagination and a commitment to excellence in the immediate impression they offer. The design work and flexible but well-grounded style guide you provided established the basis for a signature look allowing us to leverage with each new publication the image and awareness of our brand identity. The approach for designing inserts for regularly changing information has enabled us to maintain ‘the look’ in a cost-effective way.“ —Jim Buckheit, Head of School, Vistamar School
”I recall with great clarity how you and your team invested painstaking efforts to ask insightful questions, to listen, to understand our journey, to identify with our culture, to discern our needs. As an entrepreneurial company, we almost immediately perceived our relationship as one as partners, collaborating together for a single common goal. Your masterful work has laid a firm foundation upon which multiple generations of solutions and products can be based. We have and will continue to point all that yearn for creative and ingenious and sustainable branding to EDG.“ —Tom Ramey, President/CEO Vu Ryte, Inc.
“I used to think that my job didn’t have anything to do with the environment. Then I realized that my job, as well as everyone else’s job, impacts the environment in some way. And now advocating for sustainability has become my No. 1 responsibility.” — Ray Anderson
