When you call Frank's Designs, you are calling Frank. I deal directly with all my clients because I believe in providing the best customer service available. As Frank's Designs has grown I still work with clients directly because I'm the creative director of my business. I am the face and voice of Frank's Designs.
I first discovered my love for graphic design when I learned AutoCAD. At the time, I had finished my service in the US Coast Guard and was working as an electrical engineer. On the side, I started creating logos, business cards and other graphics for my employers and friends until finally, in 1997, I officially started Frank's Designs.
In 2008, my wife Anna and I moved to Sarasota, Florida. It was then, after 11 years of running Frank's Designs on the side, that I decided to follow my passion and work full-time as a graphic designer and web designer. In 2016 Frank's Designs became Empowered Marketing, LLC. Now that I have a team of people to help me I say "we," because all together we produce excellent results for you and your business. All employees are based in the United States and based on the East Coast.

Graphic Design: Vector vs. Raster
As a policy, we create images as vector art (vector graphics) whenever possible. This allows you to scale an image without losing quality. It can be scaled down for the web and scaled up for print, and look fabulous in both media. Read more about raster vs. vector graphic design.
Privacy and Ethical Standards
In any project, we use extreme caution with personal information and we protect your passwords in encrypted files. We strive to maintain the highest ethical standards with our work and expect our clients to do so too. Website content should be original. Images on websites should be original, or used with permission. We only use "white hat" search engine optimization techniques. "White hat" means legitimate, above board, ethical techniques to improve your search engine ranking. Finally, if we feel that you are better served by taking your project elsewhere, we will gladly recommend that you do so, and we will even refer you to someone who is an expert in that area.
When it comes to web design and search engine optimization we will refuse to work with direct competitors to your business. Being loyal to you is the least we can do to earn your loyalty and business.
