Our goal is
to achieve your
business goals.

What we value the most are long term relatioships. The only way that will happen is when we create results for our clients. We listen to you and your team, and in collaboation we create a plan.

We will execute the plan, take care of your branding, design, and marketing needs, so you and your staff can focus on your business.

Our Difference

Have you hired someone to design ads for you and they created some beautiful art that unfortunately does not work in the context of your business? Do you have a website that is generic and does not make visitors feel and understand what your business is about? And you feel like designers are artists and really hard to work with? What we do is fundamentally different. We focus on your business goals and your customers.

Client-Centered Design

We coined the term Client-Centered Design because every one of our team believes that we are operating in the business world, the fine art world (unless your business is fine art, of course!). We first understand your business, and decide you and your staff’s involvement levels, and create a plan in collaboration. This enables all parties to focus on producing results while still working in synergy.

User-Centered Design & User Experience (UX) Design

User Experience and UX (user experience) is the fundamental building block of everything we do. The designs we create for you will help your customers experience your brand, products and services to the fullest.

Downtown Seattle Graphic Design Company Moved to Bellevue

Our Story

If you have gotten our business card or looked at our website long enough, you might have seen this graphic a few times. Ron made this graphic in 2008, indicating with a red label where rauDesign was located–Benham Gallery in downtown Seattle. The owner of the Gallery, Marita Holdaway, helped Ron started the business and we are very grateful for that.

rauDesign had evolved throughout the decade, but little had changed to the graphic–and we will continue to keep it because we are grateful. We are also grateful for all our customers’ and partners’ continuous support. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to collaborating with you!
