about purple pear
Purple Pear Design was founded in 2002 by a husband and wife graphic design team. We love creating exciting pieces for our diverse clients, whether it’s for print or the web.​



Meeting with the client is a fun part of getting to know them and figuring out the best way to approach a design project. After the consultation, a few initial designs are provided to the client and then any changes are incorporated. The collaboration between purple pear and the client is the best part. Well, except for the finished product! 
Since starting Purple Pear Design, we have had the opportunity to work with quite a number of great clients, including Kronos Inc, JC Consulting Group, Vision Communications, Connexion, and Get in Shape for Women. We've also done work for work-at-home mothers, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and non-profit organizations, including Assabet Village
Co-op Market, Garden Mates Design, and McKellips College Counseling.
