a full-service design agency


We are a boutique graphic design firm in washington, dc, offering fresh perspectives on the printed page, digital design and brand identity.

What We Do

Merry Alderman Design is a top-to-bottom design studio with a range of services to meet your design needs. Understanding who you are and what you do is at the core of our design & branding practice.

Logo Design

We create logos that become launching pads for exceptional brands and the touchstone for loyal customers.  

Printed Stuff

When you print something today, it has to be something special. And that’s the kind of print work we do.

Brand Identity

We can help you define what makes your business or organization recognizable and build a dedicated audience.

Social Media & Infographics

Delivering a message in 280 characters is a lot easier with a dynamic image attached.

Web Design

Bold Images. Pops of Color. Dynamic Type. We believe everything on the page is in service of the user experience.

Annual Reports

Boring. Dull. Obligatory. Annual reports shouldn’t be any of these things. We create a showcase of your work and impact. 

Explore Our Work

No matter the size of your project, each client gets individualized attention from our creative director.
