    Brand Development

    Your brand comes first and there’s much more to it than a logo. It is the foundation for all of your communication and promotional efforts. We help brands come to life by designing full identity systems and by developing branding standards.

    Print & Graphic

    From brochures, to advertisements, to packaging – if it comes off a printer, we can design it. We have years of experience with everything from simple layouts to complex multi-page spreads, dielines and everything in between.

    Web & Interactive

    When it comes to digital, we’re on top of what’s next. Our team executes the strategy, information architecture, design, and development for WordPress websites, email templates, e-newsletters, e-pubs, web banners, and more.

    Tradeshow & Exhibit

    Close the exhibit catalogue. We’re one of the only local agencies that will design a custom tradeshow solution for you – and build it. Plus, we’ll crate, ship, and store it too. Need custom models or retail displays? We do that too.

    There’s really no need to make design complicated.

    This is what our process looks like

    Discover

    To make sure you achieve your business goals, we start with a discovery phase. The objective of this phase is to collect important information about your project, audience, and goals through questions and research.

    Plan

    Our planning phase ensures that your project will be a success. We use research and develop a comprehensive content and messaging strategy. This strategy is our game plan. It informs our design solutions, and helps us measure results.

    Design

    We develop innovative designs by sketching, mocking and wireframing. Then, we review the strategy with you and present thoughtful design concepts. At this point, we welcome your feedback as we move towards finalizing designs.

    Produce

    In the production phase, we bring your creative designs to life. This typically means that we are working with our printers and/or specialty partners to produce polished print, digital and exhibit products, all while managing quality control.

    Maintain

    We’re there for you long-term. Much like your products and services, design and user interface trends are always changing. When you want to expand your campaign or modify your deliverables to stay competitive, call us. We will develop an effective solution for you.

    Team

    Joe Lyons
    Joe Lyons
    President/Creative Director

    Joe is a creative visionary that likes to get his hands dirty as often as possible. He loves problem solving and welcomes difficult design challenges. A collector since a young age, he has an amazing collection of t-shirts and vintage signs have caused some to call him a hoarder. When he’s not at Spin350, you might find Joe watching movies or sneaking off to somewhere warm with a beach and umbrella drinks.

    Rebecca Murphy
    Rebecca Murphy
    Senior Designer

    Rebecca is a senior graphic designer who has been in the game since neon was in style the first time. Born and raised in Kentucky, she knows a thing or two about the Kentucky Derby and college basketball. When she is not expressing herself creatively at work, she can be found enjoying a good book, trying a new wine or playing hide and go seek with her kids (not necessarily at the same time). She is also addicted to Candy Crush and Hay Day. Currently, she is seeking help for her aforementioned addictions.

    Jordan Tavenner
    Jordan Tavenner
    Senior Designer

    JMT is a perfectionist who loves language, design, and absurdity. He’s been with Spin350 since the Westinghouse studio opened in 2010, but still finds the time to write sappy love songs. You might find him out with his band around Boston, ironically rooting for mainstream music that he sadly can’t bring himself to create. But when he’s not singing his heart out, he’s trying to convince the world to stop saying “literally” all the time. #HandQuotes!

    Our Consultant Network
    Our Consultant Network
    Designers, Developers, Animators, Photographers, Fabricators, and more

    One of the ways that Spin350 keeps our costs down is that we streamline required staff on projects. Each project is led by a core internal group which typically includes a Creative Director, a Project Manager and Designer(s). If we need to involve a specialist that we don’t have as part of our full time staff, like a copywriter or a photographer, we bring in someone from our amazingly talented network. This network is made of local freelancers and consultants that we have trusted relationships with.

    • Working with Spin350 has been a pleasure and a user-friendly experience both for me and my campaign. Their creativity and hands-on approach has allowed me to effectively showcase my work as a Boston City Councilor and a candidate for Mayor of Boston. Spin350 was a true partner through my entire campaign and meticulously handled all of our branding and creative initiatives.

      Rob Consalvo · Former Boston City Councilor and Candidate for Mayor
    • I have been working with Spin350 for some time now and have been very impressed by their creativity and attention to detail. The personal attention provided to each project has made each project very successful. Spin’s competitive pricing, excellent service, and creative talents makes them our number one choice for design services.



      Kris Potter · Owner, Cambridge Offset Printing
    • For over 10 years, I have turned to Spin350 for creativity and project management that is unmatched by other vendors. Spin350 has not forgotten the importance of personal attention. They take the time to truly understand client expectations and outcomes. Whether it is a label, packaging, web design, brochure or presentation storyboards for a key client presentation, I put my trust in Spin350, because I know that they will deliver top-notch and creative results.


      Christine Welby · Marketing Communications & Public Relations Manager, W. R. Grace
    • We worked with Spin350 on creation of our logo and website and couldn’t be happier with the results. Joe and his team were creative, responsive and mindful of our budget. The feedback we’re getting based on their work is fantastic. We’ll definitely work with Spin350 again.



      Yolande Haydon · Business Manager, GliaCure, Inc.
    • We recently worked with Spin350 to put together an ad campaign in world record time. Joe and his team were amazing, making sure our creative was right, accommodating last minute requests, and working within our budget to deliver exactly what we needed. On top of that, they were (and are) simply a pleasure to work with from start to finish – possibly the most responsive agency team I’ve ever worked with. We’re looking forward to a continued partnership with Spin350, and highly recommend their services.

      Jennifer Exoo · Interim Marketing Director, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts
    • For many years we struggled with different design firms who repeatedly failed to meet deadlines and provide the high level of service that both we and our customers expected. Joe and his team at Spin350 have been an amazing partner for us. They provide great value, communicate well and focus on the details, which is something that we and our clients appreciate very much. We look forward to working with them for years to come.

      Robert Glazer · Founder & Managing Director, Acceleration-Partners

    • I was looking for a talented graphic design team with experience in tradeshow booth design and production. I really don’t think I could have found a better company for my particular project. Most design agencies will handle the graphics of a booth, but I was blown away when they sent us their overall booth design proposal, that included all the details of the production phase – and several things I had not even considered. They are such a multi-talented team, and I honestly didn’t expect to receive the level of attention and expertise that we did. They were there from beginning to end. The graphics were phenomenal, we stayed within our budget, and the overall booth turned out better than I ever imagined.



      Rachel Spatz · Marketing Coordinator, SSH Communications Security


    • I enthusiastically recommend to anyone that would be considering utilizing the talents and services of Spin350. I first met Joe in late 2005 after joining W. R. Grace as the VP and GM of the Construction Products business for the Americas. Since then, our business has utilized Spin350 on an ongoing basis in a variety of creative “turn key” projects. The range of projects that Spin350 has worked on range from creative graphic design for our strategic planning presentations to literally building our trade show exhibits. Any organization would be extremely well served if they chose to utilize Spin350′s services.
