Girls Allowed

May 7, 2010 | buchanandesign

Buchanan Design’s newest employee differentiates slightly from the others—not just in the way that this designer is a midwesterner, a military veteran, and has an unhealthy Taco Bell fixation—but she’s also a girl. Hi, I’m Terri. I’m new here. My face has been blurred for security purposes. My first week has been a real learning […]


Off to Change the World

May 5, 2010 | buchanandesign

Heather has just finished her internship here at Buchanan Design. It was nice working with her for these last few months where she got to do some designing as well as help give us some support on our larger projects. After graduating, she plans to join the Peace Corps – good design is needed everywhere. […]


Y-Conference #15

April 16, 2010 | buchanandesign

I have attended every Y conference, (except #2), and every year I walk away inspired and excited about our amazing industry. This year’s conference was no exception, the line-up was amazing and I had the opportunity to rub elbows with some of the greatest names in our industry. I even had the privilege of being […]


I See A Bright Future

March 24, 2010 | buchanandesign

Chase has been our creative intern for the past 3 months. It’s been great having her around and she was always ready for a challenge! As her graduation approaches and the “real-world” is is just around the corner, I’m sure Chase’s future will be a bright one. See what she had to say about her […]


Memorable Impressions

March 17, 2010 | buchanandesign

As a studio, we constantly look for design solutions that help our clients stand out and make a memorable impression. I’m talking about pieces that have depth, texture, interest, detail, and design “nuggets” that engage the recipient and continues to do so even after they first received it. A piece that calls you back and […]


Featured in Logo Lounge… Again

March 16, 2010 | buchanandesign

I often describe our design style as timeless and contemporary with a twist. The twist can be in the color selection, font choice, photography, grid layout or unique design elements. Just enough to make something look contemporary and fresh, but can also stand the test of time. We want our clients to feel that we […]


It’s a Boy…. Actually 2 Boys

March 10, 2010 | buchanandesign

There must have been something in the water last spring because both Joey and Ryan received beautiful baby boys this winter. Ryan and Jennell welcomed their second son, Hudson Douglas Skinner (big brother Rowen). Joey and Jessica welcomed their first son, Jose Raon Sadile III (better known as #3). It makes me feel like the […]


Pancake Day

February 24, 2010 | buchanandesign

Although IHOP declared yesterday Nation Pancake Day, we decided to celebrate our own version today (2.24.10). Bobby brought in his portable griddle and tried out his new “Pancake Pen” to pile up dozens of flapjacks for the office. Completing the spread, Bobby prepared bacon and cut up fresh fruit. We even had a little pancake-eating […]


Happy New Year!

January 22, 2010 | buchanandesign

The holidays are behind us and it’s time to focus on several new Buchanan Design initiatives in 2010. One of those is a new booklet titled WHAT MAKES A BRAND WORK? WORK. We wanted to produce a piece that breaks down the various components of branding into simple and easy to understand information. Many people […]


Silver Trees

December 15, 2009 | buchanandesign

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me well that Christmas is my favorite holiday— just so happens that winter is my favorite season as well. I think it’s because layering clothes disguises all the great food and desserts that i get to eat during the holiday season. This is the first Christmas in our […]
