Hello, welcome to my design playground. My name is Craig and I am the CEO, janitor, secretary and head designer of Stapley Design. I specialize in creating designs, brands and illustrations/icons that solve problems (and look damned good while doing it). I am usually half the price of most agencies. I do this by NOT charging my customers for spiffy catch phrases, a bloated ego and a feng shui work environment.

About Me

See that bald floating head thingy over there? That's me.

My name is Craig and I am the creator of this shindig. I have many titles though my favorites include "Daddy", "Sweetie Pie" and "Butt-Bugs". I live in Northern Utah where, more often than not, there is no temperature. I enjoy running, playing with my kids and brownies. I believe that design is about creating solutions, communicating and forming connections.

Wanna Work together?

The internet has created an exciting and new platform for businesses to grow and expand. Online coupons, websites and annoying pop-up ad's are just some of the tools available to get your message heard.

Print


By "print" I mean... well... stuff that gets printed. This can be anything from brochures to postcards to your company newsletter.

Give something tangible to your customers.

Branding

Branding


Your brand represents the emotional, visual and physical connection others have to your company or organization.

Although I continually preach that a brand is much more than a logo I am showing images of logo's under "branding". Go figure.

Illustration

Illustration


Not every designer can draw, paint or hold their breath for over a minute. It just so happens that I can.

Illustrations and icons will capture a veiwers attention unlike anything else.
