We built our team to build your brand

Strategists. Storytellers. Graphic Designers. Developers. Researchers. User Experience Designers. Content Creators. Everything needed to uncover the insights, deliver the solutions and track your success is here at Grafik and under one roof.

And because we actually share what we’ve learned with each other, content that spikes SEO appeals to humans as well as robots. Campaigns that follow users across the web drive to landing pages that are relevant and progressive. User journeys include engagement in the real world as well as the virtual. All so that we can support you at every stage, every touchpoint.

The. Right. Idea.

We’ve added the periods above to ever-so-lightly deconstruct these three words you often see next to our name. The implies there’s an absolute, best approach. Right means it’s the one for you; it is most meaningful only when you are saying it. Idea means there’s meat on the bones. You can back it up; it’s not marketing fluff.

The Right Idea™ is what we must, always, in every instance, provide the client.

We map back to it in everything we do; it’s our mantra.

Our Team

Now meet some of the people dedicated enough (or crazy enough) to hold themselves to the difficult standard stated above.

Designing a great place to work

Judy Kirpich founded Grafik with great passion and heart, backed it up with tremendous talent, and inspired us to do the same. In 2014, after nearly 40 years of focusing on clients, it was time to focus on her art. While no longer walking our halls, her roadmap for developing great brands and great relationships motivates us each day.

Be nice

Treat everyone with respect and kindness. You’ll create a culture that clients and employees want to be part of—a place that feels like home.

Give back

We’ve done so for a very long time. Not only because it feels right, but also because it keeps us focused on what’s important.

Work smart

To move people to action, you have to dig deeper than a deliverable. You have to understand the who, what, how and why of every initiative.

Love what you do

Don’t pour your best thinking into something you don’t love. We seek more than talent—we want passion.

Having a good time is always encouraged

The funny thing about having a unified vision of that hard-thing-you’re-trying-to-accomplish is that it leads to trusting your co-workers. And that trust leads to a better everyday work experience. In other words, it’s actually more fun to have higher standards.

We're hiring!

Speaking of higher standards

While we’ve been recognized nearly 700 times with awards ranging from the global (REBRAND 100®) to the local (Addys®), more important is the length of client engagement (decades for some) and the organic growth it engenders for both of us.

Some of the many awards Grafik has won over nearly four decades.
