Art & design with a purpose. Steve Johannsen Illustration & Design provides
quality, affordable advertising for your business or event per project or
on-going basis. Quality design can open unlimited possibilities in putting
you in the eye of your audience.
I enjoy the challenges of design and production of promotional materials for
your business or event. I believe in the power of a strong central image to
capture the attention of the viewer and draw them in to learn more. Creative
and functional design with typography and other elements complete the final
I believe we can explore creative and cost options to suit your project
needs. I also have hands-on experience in commercial printing, screen
printing, signage, photography, vendor and media coordination.
Your input is valuable in sharing thoughts and visions and seeking the best
options available. Your complete satisfaction is the ultimate goal.


A LOGO DESIGN is the mark or symbol created by the artist for an individual,
company, event or product, that translates it’s use, function or essence
into a graphic image. This image becomes your face to your public and market
as business identity, branding, advertising and promotional design.


Logo packages include the concept and creation of an original design,
file/format versions as needed for line art, grayscale and full color and
ready files for business cards, letterheads and envelopes.


Steve Johannsen Illustration & Design provides quality design for any
printed products from one color to full color. He has years of hands-on
experience in most phases of offset printing, screen printing and product
coordination…from concept to final delivery.


Johannsen Design can help with nearly every creative aspect of your
restaurant business. From overall conceptual design and physical
presentation, inside and outside of your location…to menus, signage,
placemats, table tent cards, ads and printed materials for special events.


Creative Sign design can portray your image to help the public notice,
locate and enjoy your business or event. Artist will create eye-catching and
functional signs and displays inside your store. He can also coordinate
production of final product.


Effective Advertising is far more than ‘how many’ ads you run in local or
trade publications or online. Quality ad promotions begin by visually
capturing the attention of the viewer and enticing them to contact you
directly for information or to visit your business location.


Self-promotion for your business may be enhanced with a variety of products
displaying a custom design created just for you, or using your logo and
info. Events such as festivals or concerts may offer uniquely collectible
merchandise year after year.


Tourism and Event promotions can be tricky. Your community takes pride in it¹s local events and natural surroundings. You hope people attend and return year after year and view you as a quality destination.
Competition is very tough these days. Towns and communities are fiercely
competing for  attention, consumer support and dollars spent in your
community. You need to stand up tall and show them why they should come to
Your Town and Event rather than one down the road.
I strongly believe that it is the power of the IMAGE  which appears on your
posters, ads, T-shirts, online calendars etc. which makes ALL the difference
in the world. This IMAGE gives you credibility and professional
quality representation. If you rely on outdated and unprofessional promo
styles…you will appear cheap and hokey to the public.
Once we exchange ideas and information, I will create a series of concept sketches with cost options…all up front and honest. Projects can be small on a tight budget or a complete promotional package.

In addition to creating the main image…I can design and coordinate most of
your printed and promotional materials…like a Committee-in-a-box. This
could include posters, fliers, post cards/mailers, rack cards, publication
and online ads, video/audio ads, signage, banners, set design, commemorative
merchandise such as shirts, stickers and many more items.
