Unique Solutions through team design approach

Vaughn Design uses a project team approach to accomplish a client’s objectives.  Before a project gets underway, a team is formed whose members are selected on the basis of individual expertise.  A Project Manager is selected and has overall responsibility from design through project completion. 

Our Goal

Excellence in quality, both in product and service is our principle focus.  We are committed to creative design, client service and professional growth.  We believe these are interdependent goals because in the final analysis, good design is good business.
