We Love Our Community!

We feel the balance between work and community is important commitment to keep. This can look different depending on the outreach. We could be supporting small businesses in our local community, volunteering time feeding the homeless or donating design (when resources are available).

Giving back is part of our mantra.

CK Graphic Design LLC., has a long history of supporting the local community by providing volunteer time, money and pro-bono design work to local non-profit organizations. We especially appreciate supporting organizations that provide support to our clients community efforts, children, veterans/active military, and the local art community.
