For 25 years we have been bringing our clients’ communications projects to life. We design, develop and manage websites as well as design and produce print materials such as brochures, fact sheets, books and book covers. And we have done it for organizations from 1 to 1,000 employees.
We are a blend of old and new. We are all full-time employees who go to our office in Dallas, Texas, every weekday. But we live the Internet culture and thrive on the benefits these technologies bring us. This allows us to hold effective meetings and training sessions anywhere — and we do just that.
Our work is never the product of a single person. We are strong believers in multiple heads being better than one. As a result we work well with teams, always happy to add our perspective and work toward a common goal.
About our name.
“In typography, a glyph is an elemental symbol within an agreed set of symbols, intended to represent a readable character for the purposes of writing and thereby expressing thoughts, ideas and concepts.”
Glyph as defined by Wikipedia
We were founded in the early days of desktop publishing (1987) and our focus then was on producing effective marketing materials using the new technologies that helped lower the cost of production. At that time the focus was on improving the printed results with higher resolution images, color and better typefaces. Our interest in quality typography was always at the forefront of our minds. How your message is presented supports the emotional reception of your ideas.
While mastering these emerging tools was important, we learned that there is no substitute for the critical and creative thinking that goes into making truly effective marketing communications.
As the World Wide Web became the primary communication method used in our culture, we expanded into Web-based communications. Alas, this shift downgraded typography to a utilitarian use of the common fonts on every computer.
Today we are once again entering a new phase in typography. As web browsers advance and displays improve their resolution we can once again use typefaces with more nuanced designs that work to set the appropriate tone for your message.
