The Deal




Hi! I'm Ken Maynard... an idea man


Creativity is my passionI love to come up with new ideas and develop them into solid marketing, branding and promotion avenues for my clients. 

I doodle a lot. I laugh a lot. I read a lot. 

I have over 2 decades of experience as a designer, printer and idea man. My extensive network of resources helps me provide reliable, professional results for marketing, branding and print production. 

Um...  a little heads up... some of those little social icons up there aren't pointing anywhere yet, so stop back by a little later. Thanks!

In a nutshell, I do three things: inspire. create. succeed.

I accomplish these things by developing fresh ideascreating professional design and pursuing responsible production, while and fostering a listening partnership with my customers..
