The Whole Package

July 23, 2010 | buchanandesign

We just received our newly-published copy of Rockport’s Packaging Essentials: 100 Design Principles for Creating Packages today and BD is excited to share that our own self-promotional packaging was chosen to be included. We’re honored to be in the mix with so many other beautifully executed packaging solutions. Always a fantastic feeling to be appreciated […]


Oh, Canada!

July 1, 2010 | buchanandesign

In the spirit of Canada Day (and of stuffing our faces) – we all thought it would be highly appropriate to cook up some Canadian bacon, eggs-n-cheddar, and maple bars (okay, we didn’t make those, but Joey totally could have if he wanted to). The eggs were a sight to behold, as Bobby artfully griddled […]


Lunch Heroics

June 15, 2010 | buchanandesign

So yesterday we all went out for lunch at Sushi Deli 3. On our way back to the office I was suffering from a major food coma and I had a serious vision problem, I couldn’t see myself working the rest of the day. But Bobby on the other hand was sharp as a tack! […]


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 […]
