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.
