At Fleming + Company, we have a passion for design and believe in the importance of building strong client relationships. Larger companies love us because we meet, and in most cases exceed the quality of much larger agencies. We are more cost-effective with less overhead. Our clients enjoy working directly with the designers who handle their projects instead of account representatives. No matter what size your business is, we can act as an extension of your marketing department to create integrated promotional materials that get results.
