About

Web Design Houston, Graphic Design - Sura Design

About Sura Design

My business is successful because I make it less about me, and more about my clients; about the direction their companies are heading and about the success they will achieve. Not only do the brand identities I design ensure my clients stand-out, they also provide visual expressions that stand the test of time, enabling clients to engage and connect with their own customers more effectively than ever before.

As a graphic designer, I consider myself to be an artist, a writer, a communicator, an educator, an organizer, and a thought-provoter. I find great freedom in the ability to choose any media, format, and concept that can best convey ideas or information. I strive to integrate methodological process and concept development with moments of inspiration and responsilve fine-tuning.

I started Sura Design in May 1998 as a Houston area web development and graphics design firm. Sura Design is a multimedia design firm dedicated to delivering fresh, eye-catching, and functional design that makes companies stand out from the rest. We work hard in determining company objectives, current branding, competition, and target market in order to define the best strategy for communicating the client's message. We pride ourselves on offering excellent customer service that speaks for itself and not only retains our current clients, but also brings in new ones through word of mouth advertising. With a customer centric philosophy, creative talent, and a mastery of the latest technologies, Sura Design has been able to help companies anywhere from start-ups to Fortune companies.

We are a custom design firm, but we offer solutions for every budget. Once we determine your specific needs, we scope out a solution that works with your budget as well as your end goals. By streamlining our processes, we're able to offer more affordable options. Our solutions promote future growth and profitability for your company. We design for tomorrow.
