About Us

A graphic design studio right in your backyard
about post and prairie

We make design local. 

We started Post and Prairie Design Studio with a focus on small businesses in the Illinois Valley. We provide high-end designs at a price compatible with your budget.

Because we love small businesses!

Our mission is to help local businesses thrive by creating beautifully-designed marketing materials that connect with their customers and grow sales. When you succeed, we succeed.

When you work with Post and Prairie, we promise you three things:

  • Honesty
    We will always be honest with you. No hidden fees, no shady upsells. We believe honesty is the best policy and is one of the guiding principles of our business.
  • ​Trust
    You can trust us with your business. We treat each and every client equally. Your small project is just as important to us as a large-scale redesign.
  • ​Integrity
    What needs to be said here? If we can’t run our business ethically, we might as well close up shop.
we are locally based
