My name is Douglas Bringle. I am the principle and owner of BigFish Design, Inc.
My background spans 3 decades of work in the field of Graphic Design and Marketing. In my early years, starting in the 1980’s, I had worked in various capacities ranging from Graphic Artist to Production Manager to Art Director. It is during this time that I acquired my knowledge of commercial offset printing handling the design, art direction, purchasing and management of the printing budget for a large local consumer manufacturing company, Cosco Inc.
At Cosco, I designed most of the major catalogs, brochures and sales literature used to market their product lines. I handled the printing budget and scheduled the production of the work including model selection, room set design, trade show graphics as well as all vendor selection.
Leaving Cosco in the late ‘80’s, I took my skills and management background to other companies in the Muncie and Indianapolis areas working as a Art Director and Creative Director where I managed a staff of artist and writers. During this time, I picked up the additional skill set of computer aided design for print page layout and production.
In the early ‘90’s I worked as a independent designer/art director with a client base of local and regional clientele. I was introduced to the lead designer at Cummins Inc. in early 1993 where I established what was the start of an 18-year association as a contract designer and employee where I was titled, Senior Art Director.
In the late ‘90’s I became aware of the growing market of opportunity we now know as the World Wide Web. I have since became a student of “all things” internet and bring forward my design and management background into the realm of Information and Web Site Interface design.
Leaving Cummins in 2012, I have again reached out to local and regional clients. I look forward to continuing to grow, learn, and apply my present and future skill set designing and marketing for my customers.

No Cookie-cutter design
We consider design as a partnership with the client for a specific purpose. It is our job as visual communicators is to listen first. Our clients are the experts in their given field and have definite ideas and concerns when it comes to marketing their product or service. That is why we want to hear what our clients have to say without any pre-conceived notions as to what is best for them.
Once the facts are in, we will assess the client input and explore the possibilities. These findings are brought back to the client in the form of recommendations. Upon agreement to direction, costs and timing can be established.
Throughout the process, the client is consulted to assure them the project is on target and on time.

A beautifully design solution is not effective if it is delivered late. Attention to detail includes attention to the client schedule and deliverable needs.
