About Us

Solely owned and operated by freelance graphic designer Brian J. Schmidt, BJS Design Studio, operating out of Hatch Co-Working Space in beautiful downtown Wake Forest, is a trusted source of professional print and web design with an industry background of over 21 years. I work with a range of customers — from small, local businesses to large, national organizations — to develop targeted, high-end creative that supports their marketing and communications goals.

I also offer extended services, such as copywriting, custom photography and measurable marketing (social media management and automation, SEO services, Google PPC Ads/Remarketing campaigns, custom web development, listing distribution/sync and customer review campaigns), via business partners and other industry colleagues. If you're ready to grow your business through visually stunning, consistent, branded, ongoing content, let's chat!

Typical projects include: ads, brochures, posters, T-shirts, logos and branding, web banners/ads (i.e., Google ads), social media graphics (I can help you build/brand your social media pages, from profile pics and cover photos, to timeline photos, to ads that follow Facebook's best practices to give you the most reach), websites, app icons.

Companies I have designed for over the years include: Duke University (Health System, The Fuqua School of Business, Residence Life and Housing Services), LORD Corporation, The V Foundation for Cancer Research, Pennzoil-Quaker State, Kodak, North State Bank, Zurbuch Construction, The Shredding Company (Washington, DC area)
