Who we are

Hello,  I am Mark, owner and designer with Kwonyah Designs. I have been a graphic designer and illustrator for more than 15 years and have worked with companies ranging from non-profit to Fortune 500.

There is not a design need that I can’t address. Don’t believe it? Then put me to the test!

At Kwonyah Designs, I pride myself on bringing the big advertising and marketing agency to the little guy. Just a quick glance at my website and you’ll feel the the big agency presence, but that’s not who I am. I am a one man band with all the experience  you’d find with the big guys but at a fraction of the cost. That’s one of the many things that makes Kwonyah Designs special.

 

 

Think : Create : Become

Think, Create, Become is the essence of all good design and with me, it’s not just a motto it’s a way of life. I cater to the needs of every individual client and work as a team with them to create exactly what they need, not just what they want. Taking the time to think about needs, creating exactly what it needs to be and it becoming the design that helps propel the client to the next level.

 

 

My Story

kwonyahdesign-about-familyFrom an early age, I wanted to work for myself and it has always been a goal of mine. After graduating from the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks) I decided to work to gain some experience before I set out on my own. So I worked for many years as a designer and did some freelancing on the side. In 2014, I took a leap of faith and decided to start my company and go full time as a designer.

One of the factors that lead to that decision was my family. I’m married to my wonderful wife Quanya (she is the inspiration behind the name Kwonyah by the way) and have two amazing sons.

When I am not designing, I am spending time with my family doing all sorts of things like family game night, taking walks and even making our own pizzas. When I’m not with them, I enjoy exercising, competing in obstacle course races and watch Gamecock Football.
