About Us

We think in generalities, but we live in details.

What's the difference?

Graphic Details is a full-service graphic design studio in the heart of downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

From our inception in 1991, we've insisted that keeping a small studio—with a core of tight-knit experts—allows us to keep our focus on your own objectives. Our size encourages close-working relationships between our responsive team...and you. The closer together we work, the more we learn about your business and your goals; we'll become experts on your brand to effectively understand, execute and carry forward your vision.


A design agency that gets to know you, inside and out. What could be better?

At Graphic Details, we'll ask questions to grasp your vision and make it a reality. Whether the finished product is put to paper or the web, we'll make sure your message is heard (and seen) for miles around.


Think of us as an extension of your marketing team. We’ll work with you to make sure we’re closely following your brand standards. Our attention to detail will enhance your existing brand recognition while our creativity will provide you with new and innovative design solutions.


Your logo identity is the foundation of your brand, but it's only one part of the picture. Intelligent graphic standards work together with messaging components to communicate your mission to the world. We use an effective and proven research and implementation process to ensure your new brand is unique, recognizable and truly representative of your business.


Need to establish a web presence, or update an existing one? We'll stay true to your brand standards while creating a distinctive online identity that your prospects will recognize and respond to. We can even extend your brand to interactive marketing tools such as email campaigns and online publications.


We create content-rich interactive publications for mobile devices. Think beyond "page-flippers" to magazines, catalogs and brochures that engage readers with video, slideshows, audio, and animations. Visit our microsite at www.gdinteraction.com to learn more about this dynamic new opportunity for information distribution.


Regardless of the publication size or format, we’ll provide full-service production from start-to-finish, including page layout, ad design and placement, editing, proofreading and press management. Moving your publication online? We have the know-how.
