Comprehensive design. Sustainable client relationships. Efficient work. Flexible terms. Our mission is to create, develop, and nurture the creative solutions that will make your business successful or take it to the next level.
Szal Design is a multi-disciplinary design studio with a wide variety of design experience. From small, individual graphic and web projects, to ongoing corporate branding development, to the design of physical objects, to art and architectural design, whatever your creative needs, we can help.
At Szal Design, our clients call the shots. We don’t have a “designer ego” where our ideas rule and your thoughts don’t matter. We value and encourage client input in the design process. Szal Design makes it a priority to understand your business and business philosophy better, so that we develop creative products and solutions tailored to your needs, and not any one designer’s sense of “style”.
We are efficient. We only use the resources needed to complete a project, nothing more. This helps focus the design team, but more importantly, saves you money. We also pride ourselves on our responsiveness to our clients, and the timely nature in which we complete our projects. You will never feel that you are not important enough for our time.
We are flexible. Szal Design works with a variety of different businesses and individuals. We understand that every client is unique, with different financial situations and different approaches to the creative process. Let’s work together to develop a mutually beneficial solution.

In addition to design services, Tim is also a stained glass artist. For more than fifteen years, Tim has been designing and building contemporary leaded glass windows, panels, and other art glass pieces.

When not working on design-related projects, Tim can usually be found in the company of Gus, the wirehaired pointing griffon, and his wife Jamie, hiking, exploring, cooking, brewing GF beer, or just chillin' together. Gus, Tim's quality control assistant, is rapidly taking over Szal Design's Instagram page. Follow the adventures of #gusthegriff & company @szaldesign.
