My Graphic Design Background

sampleimage_4.jpg

More than 30 years of graphic & web design experience

Hi, I'm Mark Beaudry, owner of Couch Studio and a graphic design specialist with over 30 years experience in the advertising and marketing industry. 

I started my career in Toronto, Ontario at Grafika Studios where I created marketing materials for companies such as Shoppers Drug Mart and Beckers Milk. 

Later, I went on to work for larger ad agencies as an art director and associate creative director before starting my own Hamilton based ad agency in 1995. Specializing in the restaurant food industry, I was the first to design and launch all of the creative materials for Prime Restaurant's Irish pub chain called Fionn MacCools. 

15 years later I formed Couch Studio to focus more on graphic design and web development and have since become a well known respected artist for clients from around the globe.


What I Do

Graphic Design

I develop professional graphic images and layouts to communicate the message that my clients need to sell their products or services. It can be as simple as a business card or a more complex brochure. Anything you see graphically designed such as a postcard, menu, flyer, billboard, magazine, ad, etc., I can create that for you.

Corporate Identity

Every business should have a logo to represent their identity and to look professional so that consumers can take them seriously. I have been designing corporate identities for businesses worldwide for over 3o years. If you're a new business or want a fresh new look,  Contact me and I would be happy to guide you through the process.

Website Development

I have been designing websites since the web's early inception in the early 90's and have kept up-to-date with today's technologies. Whether you're looking for a simple brochure style or fully robust e-commerce website with an administrative backend, I can provide you with an online presence that your competitors will be envy of.
