1. We understand that each project we do is unique — just like our clients. Our goal is to get to know the person behind each project, brand or idea.

2. We strive to interpret each challenge our clients present us with and determine their real needs — even the ones they aren't aware of. Clients know their project better than anyone — however — it's our responsibility to deliver it in a clean and cohesive style that's unique to their business.

3. Translating all the information is where we excel. We have developed our process over 40 years of combined experience, working closely with our clients while we develop solutions and welcome feedback along the way. 

4. Once everything is approved, we finalize the deliverables, and then follow it up with hi-fives, hugs, or perhaps a tasty beverage and a toast.










You shouldn't have to hire a big city agency to get big-time creative. We feel that all companies should have great design, regardless of their size. Our goal is to help small-to-medium sized businesses have an avenue to get great creative, at a small town value. We work with our clients to develop creative marketing solutions that work best for their business.

The 411

good design.

Four One Nine Creative, LLC is an independent design consultancy located in Toledo, Ohio. After spending over 13 years working downtown, it was time to make a change. We decided to cut the unnecessary overhead and begin a new chapter, serving local clients quality design at a far more competitive price. 

Things we do: brand development, logotype, print design, corporate identities, publications, posters, brochures, packaging, signage, annual reports, exhibitor booths, collateral, websites, advertising, consulting and more. Things we don't do: crossfit, drink tea, lose at putt-putt, or save lives.

We work directly with each of our clients and practice complete transparency. This reflects our conviction that great design cannot happen without passion, intelligence, and personal commitment, which is demonstrated by a portfolio of work that spans several decades.

And while we’re being so transparent after all, let's set the record straight. We are designers – designers who believe design can solve everything. We are creatives, every one of us, who just happen to still believe really good design can do truly great things.

  • "Tim has provided a few different print design projects for me in various businesses. With each project, I was extremely pleased with the outcome. He understood my market and knew how to visually communicate with that market. My experience with other graphic designers has been a back and forth dialogue trying to get them to produce what I was envisioning. Tim always nails it! I trust his work and I know that in whatever project I need, he will always produce fantastic results!"
    Leah Lanius

  • "Tim has always been a creative think-tank coming up with some of the best design solutions I have seen from fellow workers. Tim listens to his client's needs and aspirations, and the proof is in the details, and  you can always see the blood, sweat, tears and sleepless night that went into his work. I would love to collaborate with him on a design project again someday as he has a way of always making work seem like play."
