What our clients say

AGD was hired to create a corporate identity package for us including website, letterhead, business cards, and brochures. We were impressed by their ability to literally read our minds and deliver a corporate identity that perfectly symbolizes our vision and conveys the stylish, creative and modern image we needed to sustain the development of our company. Creative, flexible and efficient, we will not hesitate to use AGD again and we highly recommend them.

Chris Hubble, CEO, db5 Brand Research


We loved our experience of working with the Amara Grimes team on our website! Developing a new website was a big undertaking for us. We valued the beautiful design work, the high quality standards, and the collaborative support of the Amara Grimes team. We have recommended Amara Grimes to a number of colleagues for their websites as well.

Amara Grimes Design has a unique ability to deliver impactful designs along with insightful user experiences that help us reach our clients both online and offline. This is an important attribute in a design firm today as not every design can easily translate between these mediums. Whether a print design or online web design, AGD invests the time to fully understand our goals and making sure that our objectives are met in our project outcome.

Keith Teruya, CEO & Founder,

Bob Grimes, Elizabeth Callahan and the entire Amara Grimes team have consistently provided us with refreshing, elegant, and alluring designs for our website, newsletter, concert programs, magazine advertisements, and customer communications for over ten years. We hear nothing but compliments from our customers, who clamour for our calendar every year. Amara Grimes has helped us distinguish ourselves in our worldwide trade.

Good work. Good words.

Professional. Personable. Conscientious. And above all, talented. Those are the kinds of words we often hear from our clients. They embody the attitude we bring to every project and, admittedly, it’s kind of effortless. It’s just who we are. We like designing. We like to see our work help others succeed at theirs. We like to believe our work contributes to something better — a better experience for both the client and the consumer.

Our process

Client Meeting

This is our opportunity to learn more about you and your project. It’s the time we listen, take notes and ask questions.



When we’re satisfied that we understand the scope of work, we’ll prepare an estimate that specifies the costs and deliverables.



Now comes the work. We provide tight comps throughout the design process so you can be confident the final product is right.



Once the design stage is complete, we’ll oversee any outside production processes (printing, coding, etc.) through to delivery.




More words.

Simple. Smart. Effective. It’s a slogan we came up with to embody our design philosophy.

Simple is the process of reducing complex problems into clear accessible solutions. It means not overthinking the design, not letting the design get in the way of the message. We often hear clients describe our work as “clean.” That’s simple. Simple is clear. Simple is clean.

Smart means making intelligent choices and avoiding lazy solutions. It means not dumbing down good ideas. Smart is trusting your audience’s innate intelligence. We’ve always trusted “smart” and it has always paid off.

Effective is the product of getting the first two right.
