About 7ninedesign

When you work as a graphic designer, it seems like friends and family are always asking you to help them set up a website, or to create logos for their businesses, or to create graduation announcements. I realized how much I liked doing these side projects and, in 2004, I decided to create my freelance design studio here in Marquette, Michigan.

Thanks to the Internet, I have done projects for people across the U.S. without ever having to meet face-to-face. Feel free to email me or call and discuss your project with me and I'll let you know if it's something I can do, or if there's a better solution out there. I'm a pretty honest guy and I'm not going to lie and tell you, "Sure, I can do that by next week, no problem," or suddenly spring extra charges on you. As cheesy as it sounds, I want you to come away from your experience satisfied with the project we've created. I really do want to help my clients make a good impression and I am dedicated to creating products that are functional and unique.

About Greg Kretovic

fishing in the Upper Peninsula of MichiganUnlike many graphic designers, I am fortunate to have experience in a variety of design environments– from print design and advertising, to web design and billboards. I have years of experience creating media and graphic design for a wide variety of clients. I am a graduate of Northern Michigan University's Fine Arts program, with a concentration in Graphic Communications and have worked for a variety of design firms.

When I'm not sitting in front of a computer, I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing, golfing and being in the outdoors of the beautiful Upper Peninsula.

I am extremely fortunate (in more ways than one) to be married to my wife, Leah. She has a degree in Public Relations and currently works as a marketing specialist. She does freelance writing and editing and is one of those people who can spot a typo a mile away. Leah proofreads and does a final check on all of my projects to ensure that the finished product meets your goals.
