DesignHub is growing in Saline, thanks to work from both new clients and past clients who have risen from the recession.
The 13-year-old design firm has watched business steadily grow since the recession's peak two years ago. It's revenues are up about 20 percent, allowing the company to give its five-person team a full plate and even more work for local freelance creatives. "We have been pretty consistently growing our revenue," says Chris Kochmanski, a partner with DesignHub
Driving this growth is new work from new clients, such as Corner Health Center
in downtown Ypsilanti. DesignHub is working on revamping the business' website and logo. DesignHub has also watched a number of clients that went dormant during the recession come back with new work. It is working on a direct mailing campaign for the Daycroft Montessori School
and has launched a new website for the Center for Automotive Research
, both in Ann Arbor.
"We're hoping the increase in business sustains itself and grows further," Kochmanski says
He adds that the three partners behind DesignHub
are most comfortable with the company as a boutique digital design business with a small staff tackling interesting projects. "We would like to grow steadily and add people slowly," Kochmanski says.
