Atticus Pet Design studio is a small web and graphic design studio based out of historic Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We provide distinctive web, identity, and print solutions for businesses and individuals with a focus on the pet industry. We cater mainly to small and medium-sized businesses, as well as startups and independent contractors.
We like to keep up with current design trends, but our level of experience also allows us to tap traditional and classical design fundamentals as well. We love all types of design - from sleek and modern to whimsical to grunge. We apply this appreciation for design to every distinct project we receive.
Hello, my name is Stephanie Hamilton, founder and lead designer at Atticus Pet Design Studio. I am a full-time freelance Graphic and Web Designer who specializes in creating unique and beautiful design solutions. I have been in the field for nearly 5 years and have expanded by capabilities in that time. My pursuit of the web and design, however, began when the web was just a couple years old as I'd spend my time constructing websites using HTML. To my surprise these websites were apparently good for 90's standards. Things have moved on and since then, I pride myself with keeping up with the latestest web technologies.
After college I've managed to land an internship at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Having accumulated the knowledge of what it takes to be succesful in the field, I've started Stephanie Hamilton Design and in 2011, Atticus Pet Design Studio - the latter forging my interests in both animals and design.
I enjoy every aspect of design, from concept development, to print design, to hand-coding XHTML and CSS. I take my work very seriously, and I feel personally invested in every project I work on. The kind words and appreciation I receive from my clients lets me know that I am on the right on track with our methodology.
Products & Services
We like to think of ourselves as a full-service design studio with a decided focus on the Web. With additional experience in brand identity and print design, we have the tools to offer a complete branding package. On the other side of the coin, no project is too small either. Each of our services is available on a standalone basis and we can work with you to develop a solution for even the tightest budget.
"Thank you Stephanie and Team at Atticus Pet Design. We are a small business, but needed a major website over-haul on one of our projects, and in need of a brand new site for another project. You made this a painless process for us from start to finish... keeping us in the loop through the entire process. Despite our constant changes, your team patiently worked with us, and this was a great help to us. Thank you, you guys are awesome, easy to work with and communicate very well. You are our web design solution.."
"Stephanie is a very easy person to work with, with an attention to detail and an ability to hear and understand the purpose of the project. She was fast and followed the client's wishes in detail, and added some unique visual elements that help the web site stand out."
I've worked with Stephanie on a logo project. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable all along and whenever I had problems downloading the work due to my out of date software or lack of knowledge, Stephanie helped me out right away. Her designs were great too - she gave me a wonderful font that I didnt know existed and she was willing to stay with the project through literally dozens of changes and tweaks. Unlike some freelance designers, Stephanie goes the distance! She stays with you and helps all the way.
"Stephanie Hamilton Design created our signage, which went from being indistinguishable to visually intriguing and informative. Stephanie is very responsive to feedback and has a quick return on revisions. She really took the time to listen to our requests and understand our practice. Very accessible and accomodating throughout the process. "
"The colors, the layout, the whole brochure was beyond our wildest dreams. We appreciate Stephanie helping us with this brochure, she did this to help animals and we can tell she loves them also! "
