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.

  • Fed debates merits of earlier rate hike given U.S. jobs gains
    Federal Reserve hinted on Wednesday that a surprisingly strong jobs market recovery could lead it to raise interest rates earlier than it had been anticipating. At the same time, most Fed officials wanted further evidence before changing their view on when rates should rise, according to the minutes from the central bank's July 29-30 meeting. "Labor market conditions had moved noticeably closer to those viewed as normal in the longer run," the minutes said, adding that policymakers "generally agreed" the job market was healing faster than they had expected. The Fed had said in its policy statement following the July meeting that there was "significant" labor market slack, but the minutes showed many members of its policy-setting panel thought this characterization "might have to change before long."
  • BofA in $16.5 billion deal with U.S. over mortgage bonds: source
    Bank of America Corp is expected to pay more than $16.5 billion to end investigations into mortgage securities that the bank and its units sold in the run-up to the financial crisis, in a deal that could be announced as early as Thursday, a person familiar with the matter said. An agreement in principle was reached earlier this month after a phone call between the bank's chief executive, Brian Moynihan, and Attorney General Eric Holder. Representatives of the Justice Department and Bank of America declined comment.
  • Dow, S&P 500 rise after Fed minutes reassure on rates
    The minutes were from the two-day meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee in late July, when the Fed trimmed its monthly bond-buying program by an additional $10 billion. Stocks pared gains immediately after the release of the minutes, but the Dow and the S&P 500 returned to positive territory with a little more than an hour of trading left in the regular session. "The market was absolutely being driven by the Fed. It started out strongly, then it looked like a bit of capitulation before the statement came out, and then we obviously saw a big sigh of relief," said Drew Wilson, an equity analyst at Fenimore Asset Management in Cobleskill, New York. The S&P 500 gained 4.91 points, or 0.25 percent, to finish at 1,986.51.
