First, a moment of inspiration.

Design Inspiration

Design Factor is a design firm based in Reno / Sparks, Nevada just down from beautiful Lake Tahoe. The focus here is strong design and branding that carries out in all things a business or organization stands for. Inspiration provided by nature.


Not everyone is built to boast, brag and talk about how great they are (whew). Most who are great are focused on being great and doing great things. That takes effort. This is where we come in. We help show and tell the world, who may not have heard, what you’ve got to offer… And we do so appropriately.


Each client is different, but one thing that seems to stay the same is the need to show who they really are, maybe the parts that are typically hidden, so someone at the other end can know what they have to offer.


Our clients have ranged from local businesses and non-profits to international corporations. We help those who serve the less fortunate in our community, doctors who help us do things better and stay well, as well as those who provide products and services to some of the top companies on the planet, which we are consequently unable to mention.

It's hard promoting yourself.

A tough question about self promotion

Who would you rather interact with? Better yet, who would you rather be?

A : One who bolts into the room during an afternoon meal wearing loud obnoxious colors, beating their drum, clashing their symbols and proclaiming how great they are, how you should talk to them, and right now by the way, constructing a freshly made squeaky balloon giraffe while you enjoy your meal.

B : One who steps into the room, the room goes quiet, instantly drawing the attention of the audience, striking those who have gazed up with interest and curiosity about knowing more about this different yet approachable person clearly having something amazing to offer in their left arm, who simply says great to see everyone, I’ll be sitting right here by the door.

If you said A, well, that’s a clown, and while I suppose there is a need for that somewhere, it wasn’t intended to be here. If you said B, that’s what we’re doing for our clients. We help them to stand out in their space, in a way that engages their audience with a bold truth that shines and draws attention appropriately, for a natural and memorable interest within reach. The desire and the need to interact then come from within, which is much stronger than being told what you need.

Everyone has an internal compass, lets trigger some.


Looking for clowns? Brace yourself.
