We offer all the traditional services you'll find at an agency--website design and development, logo design, brand management, corporate identity and stationery design, social media management and strategy, and general marketing communications for small to large companies. Check out our Pricing page for recommended business packages.


Our focus is on the small business. We help clients brainstorm, offer assistance getting social media accounts off the ground, and provide a bit of design help here and there. Unless you are a large company--and we can help you too!--we don't require retainer fees or minimum budgets. We can help with a simple social media design for a promotion you'd like to run on your Facebook page, a custom holiday greeting card to send to the family, or a logo design for an upcoming event.


After years in the advertising and marketing industries, it occurred to us that if we could create the kind of agency we wish existed, then not only would we love our work more, but clients would benefit more too. We care about our community, giving back and shopping local. Some of us are military spouses. Most of us have young families.

D+S Design not only focuses on the happiness of its clients, but the happiness of its employees. That's why we focus on helping small businesses, creative entrepreneurs, and bloggers. Our ideal client is in fact, just like us! We understand your struggle, and we understand your budget. We care about a work-life balance, so we strive to keep our prices cost-effective for you. And in turn, you ignore the yoga pants we might wear to the next meeting!

At the end of the day, all we hope for is a happy, well-balanced life, and perhaps a glass of red wine.


Based in Annapolis, D+S Design is lead by Sarah Jane Dunaway - a die-hard paper enthusiast, lover of fine stationery, and creator of the lifestyle blog, Clean & Proper.

A graduate of the University of Alabama's top-ranked College of Information & Communicaton Studies, Sarah Jane completed her studies in Advertising and Graphic Design, before leaving the Deep South for the Pacific Northwest after graduation. It was in Seattle that she fell in love with paper and printing, garnering both paper specification experience and marketing experience at a regional paper company.

Sarah Jane's career has been spent both on the client-side, working in-house with a focus on brand management and graphic design for a variety of industries ranging from large technology companies to small architecture firms; as well as on the agency-side. Before creating D+S Design, Sarah Jane wore many hats from Brand & Marketing Director at a technology firm in Washington, DC., to Senior Social Media Strategist at the agency level, focusing on real estate development and homebuilder industries.
