Fly­ing Cloud Design offers fast, professional, freelance graphic design services. The company is owned by Maria Poulos who designs for world-class, multinational corporations. Many start-ups and small businesses have taken advantage of this experience. This is a one-of-a-kind, one-person (mostly), freelance graphic design agency. We’re here to help companies compete with the best.

There’s a lot of high level designing to do, and then there’s the stuff you can do yourself. I recognize the need to be cost effective, under the umbrella of high-quality work. It’s important to get the basic elements in place before launching a marketing campaign. The best way to do that is by retaining a reliable, professional and experienced graphic designer.

Autonomy. Using this service you will own your own materials, edit your own website, and get help as needed. Websites are built using a content management system (easy to edit) then handed over to the client (including hosting). When designing for print, source files are released to the client (not held hostage). Logos are formatted as vector files making them easy to use across all media. Your success is our success.

About the name: Flying Cloud Design

Being a life-long member of the Newburyport scene, I wanted to pick a name the reflected the place I call home. The Flying Cloud was a clipper ship with ties to Newburyport. It brought goods from port to port. It was noteworthy for being fast like a flying cloud, hence it’s name.

“The cloud” in today’s terms is that of the immediate access to information and communication. Commerce is done via the cloud, which made Flying Cloud Design an appropriate name for a graphic design business which offers a fast turn-around on web and marketing services. Fast like a flying cloud.
