Trio is owned and operated by Erin Ellison. Originally from the Detroit area, Erin earned her BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

She is passionate about design and approaches every project with enthusiasm.
“The quality of the work done by Trio Graphic Design is exceptional, but it is the relationship I value most. I can share ideas, ask for suggestions, make changes and I always feel like what I need is the priority. I know that the vision I have is important and will be the end product. I cannot say enough about what it means to have someone who can help me make these ideas come to life.”
“Trio Graphic Design has provided support to our organization over the past six years by developing a branding plan and designing print materials. Erin listens carefully to our needs and helps us tool our organization’s image into something our staff and board are proud to represent.”
“Erin did an excellent and timely job on all phases of my website project. When I first explained what I wanted, she listened attentively and quickly understood the task at hand. She voluntarily did some research and made all the needed phone calls to complete the work. When I made some mistakes with the data I gave her, she never complained and just took care of the corrections. My website changes were made well before deadline. Erin was always a pleasure to work with – focused, smart, good sense of humor, and willing to do whatever needed to be done to bring the project to completion in a creative manner.”
We take the time to understand your objectives, challenges, and goals. We work with you to develop a clear and concise brand strategy that aligns with your values and vision.
What’s the difference you say? Simply put, a brand is an all-encompassing company image. It is your organizations personality, philosophy, values and vision all in one. Identity is a visual system that is governed by a set of guidelines i.e. approved colors, fonts, layouts, etc. Having guidelines ensures that the identity of the company is cohesive, which helps strengthen your brand as a whole. The ideal logo should uniquely represent a company’s brand into a recognizable mark.
We design everything from business cards, stationery, brochures, catalogs, annual reports, posters, flyers, advertisements, billboards, newsletters, postcards, packaging and more!
