Designers Ed King and Michael Hagler have been creating Print, Web, and Branding solutions for
over 25 years.

Longtime friends, they partnered to launch
Vert Creative, a full
service design studio.

"I want to thank you for the exemplary way you handled our need for a "first class" web site and marketing materials. I especially want to acknowledge the professional manner in which you handled the construction, and were able to guide us in making good decisions for the design and creation of a very professional site. You focused in on our needs and goals immediately. You were always prompt and kept us informed at every stage of the proceedings.

 The fact that "we" accomplished most of this by email and fax certainly is a credit to your ability to stay on top of things! We love our site, and have receive many compliments on its design and content.  Thank you again for everything. Feel free to provide my name to potential clients. We would be pleased and honored to act as a reference on your behalf."

Ed and Michael first met while attending renowned Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where they studied Graphic and Advertising Design. Both went on to establish themselves as industry design professionals, developing expertise in branding, logo development, and packaging. With the advent of new media, they translated their skills to the area of website design and development, which became their primary workload.

They formed Vert Creative, taking advantage of their breadth of experience to offer a complete range of design services. Vert prides itself on clear, open communication with clients as well as efficient use of budget and resources. Vert's goal is not just providing effective design solutions for projects of all sizes and scope, but also to make the process collaborative and enjoyable for everyone involved. Clients work directly with Ed and Michael, with none of the creative process outsourced or assigned to junior staff.


• Scheduling: Meeting or exceeding deadlines is priority, constant communication is key.

• Budgeting: Fixed fees are preferred so the client knows exactly what the total costs are up front.

• Websites: This CMS is Vert Creative's preferred platform, the most user friendly system available.

• Print Projects: Only trusted local vendors are partnered with for quality assurance.
