We design for people who believe that what they are saying and doing will make a positive impact on the world.
Each of us is focused on supporting, facilitating, and enhancing the message of these individuals and organizations, and we are committed to both written and visual communication that drives wellbeing and gains real traction in the marketplace of ideas.
Graphic design is much more than just aesthetics. Certainly, strong graphic design presents your services beautifully. But it’s also a language that, when “spoken” well, communicates large amounts of information efficiently, comprehensively, and elegantly. It can also enhance your reputation, foster trust, and build your customer base. Each element of graphic design converses with your audience, ensuring that each individual, regardless of their background and experience, can intuitively understand what you are offering and how to use it.
We are our team
The Beacon Design Collective took on two complex projects (a series of 8 sign designs and a 240-page book) with very compressed deadlines. I appreciated the time they took to understand each project and formulate a detailed work plan with clear timelines and accountabilities. They were systematic without jeopardizing creativity and provided top-notch project management and design services. We could not be happier with the results. The work far surpassed our highest expectations, despite the tight timeline. I recommend the Beacon team and their approach for any number of projects.

Beacon are the best team and most talented designers I have ever worked with. They take the time to understand the work and your audiences, and use their own expertise to make the final product better in every way. I recommend them to anybody looking for design support.
Dani Vachon and the Beacon Collective are absolutely wonderful to work with — so much so that this is now the second organization at which I have chosen to work with her team for our design needs. Dani has an impeccable eye for creative design, is incredibly responsive and communicative, and has never missed a deadline. She is a delight to work with and consistently makes my job easier. I wholeheartedly recommend Dani and the Beacon team.

Dani and the Beacon Design Collective are a tremendous design team who elevate every piece of work they touch. They manage projects effectively, understand our work and context, and produce design solutions that dazzle every single time. Plus they’re great fun to work with and can problem solve any tricky issue. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again!
