Hello, thank you for visiting! It is the mission of ASGD to provide sound brand guidance, outstanding creative, and true customer service. Acting as an invested partner for my clients provides on-going success for my business and my clients’ businesses. If you have questions or would like to visit about your brand + graphic design needs, let’s talk today!

ASGD offers expertise in brand development and print design, and provides the full range of graphic design services. With 15+ years of experience working with marketing and advertising professionals, in small businesses and at corporate levels, Azure provides sound strategy and positioning guidance and designs effectively. ASGD works with teams of all sizes and businesses of any type.

Azure’s experience started in a small Nebraska print shop performing graphic design and print production. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Industrial Management and Graphic Arts, she went to work for a 100,000+ circulation newspaper, honing her technical skills in a fast-paced environment. An established reputation of outstanding talent and exceptional relationships led to an 11-year position in a large marketing and public relations department in South Dakota where she was at the design forefront of a system rebranding.

Azure began her freelance business in Olympia, Washington, in 2008. Since that time she has been working directly with business and corporate clients across the U.S. to reach greater success through strategy development and effective visual communication. In 2012, she and her family returned to South Dakota, and now reside in Nebraska. Her client base continues to grow and includes clients coast to coast.

ASGD proudly supports non-profit organizations through creative service donations. Azure donates design services to the Black Hills Children’s Home Society, offers service to local community organizations at free or reduced rates, and supports Children’s Miracle Network by providing Great Black Hills Duck Race designs for 11 years running.

Notable recognitions include a First-Place Award of Excellence from the South Dakota Newspaper Association, a Silver Addy Award from the South Dakota Advertising Federation, a national award for the 2006 Great Black Hills Duck Race design, and a variety of local, state, and international awards.
