Owner and Creative Director Eric Winkel established The ArtD'partment in 1992 as a freelance "agency." The concept behind the company was the notion that every business can afford top notch graphic design services if the artist - and thus the overhead - is there only when needed. The ArtD'partment originally provided a wide range of services including design and print products. As technology has expanded, so have the capabilities of The ArtD'partment. While print advertising remains an integral part of the company's business, The ArtD'partment now also offers such services as digital photography and website design and construction. [ back to top ]
