Pair opens graphic design store

 

Keith Delaney and Luke Mathison offer services to businesses and individuals.

Stickers with their logo — as well as their work — are showing up all over town. But how does one say their name?

“It’s pronounced like ‘designs,’” said Keith Delaney of the business D’sinez he co-owns with Luke Mathison.

The graphic design and sign, sticker, decal and banner-making store at 630 Fleet Street was opened by the pair in August 2011 and since then has seen business steadily increase. 

“We help businesses around town to create signage to help their business,” Mathison said. 

The store can create a variety of marketing products for businesses and individuals, including, but not limited to, banners, vinyl signs, apparel, decals, boat wraps, cardboard cutouts and stickers. Delaney says they can work with clients to develop a logo or design, or with someone who already has a logo but needs a sign made. 

Delaney got his start in graphic design at Brookings-Harbor High School in a digital arts class. After two years at Southwest Oregon Community College and some time at Oregon State University, Delaney worked for a sign maker in Corvallis, learning the ins and outs of the trade.

“I learned how to work with corporate clients, like OSU and Hewlett Packard,” Delaney said. 

After a different sign maker in Corvallis went out of business, Delaney and Mathison bought up the company’s equipment at an auction and started D’sinez in Brookings. 

While most of their business has been local, Mathison said they had worked with clients as far as Portland. 

Delaney said they are able perform a quick turnaround on most projects and they try to provide their services at a competitive rate. 

So far the company has worked with several businesses around town in creating signs for them.

“I enjoy it,” Delaney said. “It doesn’t feel like work sometimes. I enjoy the creative aspect and I visualize what they are talking about and recreate and redraw until it’s right.”

D’sinez recently joined the Chamber of Commerce and both said the community has been really supportive of their business the past two years. 

 

“We get to work with a lot of smaller businesses, people we went to school with,” Mathison said. “And now they own businesses, too.

  • Oil's drop chills Asian stocks, inflation data boosts dollar
    Asian shares were mostly lower on Friday as a sharp overnight pullback in crude oil prices dampened risk appetite, while the dollar was firm after upbeat U.S. data tilted expectations back toward an early interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve. Strong factory output data and a weaker yen pushed Tokyo's Nikkei (.N225) to a fresh 15-year high but the market was last flat as profit taking kicked in. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.1 percent after advancing to a five-month high on Wednesday.
  • Brent rises above $61, set for biggest monthly gain since 2009
    Crude oil futures rebounded on Friday, with Brent heading for its biggest monthly gain since May 2009, as supply outages in the North Sea and renewed fears of gas supply disruption in Europe supported prices. A reduction in rig counts and expectations for better oil demand have helped Brent prices rise by around 15 percent so far this month from January's close of $52.99. Brent crude (LCOc1) rose 98 cents to $61.03 a barrel by 0055 ET. Elsewhere in Europe, gas supply talks between the European Union, Ukraine and Russia will be held in Brussels on Monday after President Vladimir Putin warned that Russia would halt gas supplies to Ukraine that can cause disruptions in deliveries to Europe.
  • Lower gasoline prices dampen U.S. consumer inflation
    U.S. consumer prices fell over the past year for the first time since 2009 as gasoline prices continued to tumble, which could allow a cautious Federal Reserve more room to hold off on raising interest rates. Other data on Thursday showed a rebound in business investment spending plans and a steadily firming labor market, suggesting the move into deflation territory would be brief. In addition, gasoline prices have been rising in recent weeks. "We believe the Fed will wait until September before achieving liftoff on interest rates and, even then, the process of normalization will move at a glacial pace," said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial in Chicago.
