The story of Crop Marks Design – a journey well worth the trip.

Crop Marks Design Studio was born in 1994 as an entrepreneurial effort to slowly build a design firm focusing on graphic and web design in central New Hampshire. Realizing that his first job out of college (designing yellow page ads) wasn’t going to put him on the road he wanted, Stephen bought a $4,000 PC from Dell (Dell told me I was one of their first residential customers!) and came to Concord to register the business, thinking he would freelance his way out.

Naturally a business doesn’t develop overnight so Stephen got into the advertising agency scene for 14 years carrying titles of Senior Graphic Designer to Creative Director of well respected award-winning agencies. During these years, Crop Marks Design was operating in the background (yes, lunch hours, late evenings, weekends, holidays, etc.) slowly developing a growing client base and referral network.

Today, Crop Marks Design has developed into a well respected design firm in the community – with Stephen having left the ad agency world far behind to do things his way. With clients in every type of business, located coast to coast – “his way” is working just as planned.

Stephen is a graduate of Plymouth State College (class of 1991), an active member in the Concord, NH Chamber of Commerce and has been recognized by the NH Internet Awards, Ad Club of NH, American Graphic Design Awards, NH Graphic Arts Association for creative excellence.
