cyclone press helps entrepreneurs (and soloproneurs) in Kansas City build better businesses through design, printing, and website development.

Design is at the core of everything we do, but we’re equally passionate about business, entrepreneurship, even small business marketing. We don’t want to just design and print your business cards; we want to talk about the tagline you’re going to use – if it’s a good fit and why. Branding might be the pretty face, but solid business strategies are the brains underneath.

Everything we do is with the small business owner in mind. The majority of our logo design/redesign projects fall into the “quick logo” category, where we spend a few hours and a few rounds of revisions to create a clean, professional logo in the correct formats that won’t break the bank. We’re practical, and we don’t believe you should spend all your money on a logo before you’ve even validated your business concept. That’s why we have a startup package.

So yes, we excel at creating and keeping a logo and brand identity consistent across print and web. But we’ll also brainstorm with you about where you feel your vision is shifting after a year or two in business. If you have an idea for a creative marketing strategy, we’ll execute it. If you want to partner with someone invested in the success of your business, you’ve come to the right place.

With that in mind, view a single page list of most all our services here. If you have an unlisted need, don’t hesitate to ask. Figuring out how to use the full capabilities of your MacBook might not be a traditional design service, but we would love to help you with that because Apple products and nerdy automation strategies are our jam. Just don’t ask us how to fix a corrupt PST file on your PC.

founder + creative director

I spend way too much time in coffee shops drinking way too much coffee, talk way too fast, and am passionate about clean, minimalist design, entrepreneurship, art, branding, coffee and Kansas City. I’m constantly reading about business, productivity, science and tech and am always available to discuss the best way to reach Inbox Zero. I’ve been helping small businesses look professional in print and online for 10 years and I thrive on creative problem-solving. Let’s talk about how we can get your business idea off the ground – or take it to the next level.

I occasionally post random musings or article links on Twitter and personal art projects on Instagram.
