WTW Design Group

Michigan-Based
Small Business
USA-Based

WTW Design Group was founded in 1996 by Ken Wilson as a part-time business. Ken, a 12-year marketing employee with the University of Michigan, grew WTW on a project-by-project basis—designing everything from websites to printed materials and tradeshow displays—until making the company a full-time enterprise in 2008. 

 

Today, the company’s focus on education, healthcare, non-profit, and corporate clients, coupled with its innovative design approach and dedication to superlative service, has provided it with a committed client base. Our business is focused on all aspects of brand building, from content and media to promotion and strategy. We willingly tackle whatever a project entails and strive to make each engagement simpler, easier, and more effective from start to finish. 

 

The WTW team—most with direct U-M experience—provide a balance between innovative design, detailed project management and technical delivery that ensure a seamless end-to-end design/development process and will meet U-M’s project goals for stunning graphic design and dynamic, easy to manage/update and user-friendly websites. 

 

We believe we offer the most value to your projects and look forward to delighting your stakeholders with truly fabulous end results.
