Ohno Design is more than websites. Or brochures. Or business cards. Or video, logo design, social media, marketing, advertising or photography. We’re all that. We’re one piece or all the pieces. We’re what you need, when you need it. And we’ll help you figure all that out. We’re solutions seeded in Michigan’s Great Lakes Bay Region serving Bay City, Midland, Saginaw and beyond.


At Ohno Design, we do it all. You don’t have to have your designers send your logo to your website developers. Your videographers don’t have to touch base with your social media team. We are your graphic designers, web developers, videographers, SEO and social media team. Our one-stop approach cuts down on charges for transferring files. We eliminate inconsistencies and inaccuracies that come from dealing with multiple firms. We save you time and money. We give you consistent quality. Among our services:


The Nike Swoosh. The Coca-Cola font. The Golden Arches. They’re among the world’s most recognizable icons, and their brands have been built around them.

At Ohno Design, we recognize the importance of building a brand and keeping it consistent across all mediums. We will work with you to develop your business logo and materials into an identity that becomes easily identifiable. From your business cards to your website to your slogan, we will create a brand that is uniquely you.

Social Media

So, your business has a website, but what incentive do you give your customers – and potential customers – to visit it often? Do you just sit around and hope your customers will visit your site? You are not powerless. Take your message directly to your customers by creating a presence where they are: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

On social media sites, your message becomes part of their daily dose of news – their feed. Social media can help you build your brand, get customers and get results.

Ohno Design can set up your social media business page and get you on your way to a more intimate and effective relationship with your customers. Don’t have the interest or time to create content and keep conversation alive on your social media sites? We can do that, too.

Photography is at the heart of Ohno Design. As seasoned photojournalists, we are trained and experienced in capturing real life in pictures. We’ve seen the difference that original photography makes vs. stock photos. It helps you stand out. Get noticed.

You’re an original. Why tell your story with other people’s photos? With our photography, your website and marketing materials become uniquely you. We tell your story without saying a word.

Among our favorite visual websites:

Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer to that. Pricing depends on a variety of factors – how much information do you want on your website? Do you want us to shoot photos? Do you want us to create a video for you? Do you want brochures and business cards that match your website? Do you want us to manage your social media accounts? What is simple, though, is setting up a meeting with us to talk about your website needs. Based on that meeting, we give you a price before you commit to the work.
Yes! We love to help good businesses become great businesses. We get as excited as our clients do when their customer base expands. We all choose to live and work here because we think this community is pretty awesome. We love helping other people discover the local businesses and attractions that make this part of Michigan such a great place to live. Call us today to set up a meeting to talk about your business needs. We’re happy to show you what’s worked for others and write a specific plan to help your business grow and prosper.
There are some wonderful online templates and other resources for marketing and websites. If you want to blend into the crowd then those standardized forms might be a good solution for you. Most businesses, though, want to differentiate themselves from their competitors. Here at Ohno, we have photographers, videographers, artists, writers and others on our staff to capture the essence of what makes you better than your competition. If you provide a better service than anyone else in the area, then you want your marketing materials to communicate that.
