In 1994, after spending several years absorbing the trade in Boston design studios, he opened Dan Beard Design.

Whether it’s the creative talents of copywriters, photographers, and illustrators, or the production expertise of print shops, embossers, and mailing houses, Dan Beard Design has all bases covered.


Each new job presents an opportunity to learn. Dan constantly strives for a better understanding of each of the businesses or institutions with which he works. He’s inspired by the eagerness of his clients to reach their audiences in just the right way. The intimate knowledge and commitment that they bring to the table fuels Dan’s pursuit of the perfect design solution.
