At Dinardo Design, we put passion into everything we do. We support and inspire each other every day. We encourage new perspectives and the free exchange of ideas. We are painters, gardeners, and equestrians. We play quidditch and we love birthday cake. We embrace social responsibility, and our commitment to equity, inclusion, and diversity has shaped our values and our community.
Creative geniuses. Our designers bring a fresh perspective to every project that makes ideas come to life. They connect with clients to understand their needs and work closely with our Art Director to develop innovative and effective visuals. Yes, they deliver outstanding, memorable designs, but more importantly, they deliver meaningful solutions.
Art Buyers at Dinardo Design have years of experience finding inspired and appropriate artists for every project. And well, artists just love them! Their relationships are invaluable. They follow art expectations composed collaboratively by our clients and designers and have the intuitive ability to spot the style that will perfectly capture the spirit of each project.
The right photo can make all the difference. With guidance from our Design Department, our photo research team can track down the most elusive photos for our clients. Managing tens of thousands of images, they have a keen eye for detail and are meticulous when it comes to licensing and permissions.
Lots of magic happens when our Production Department takes over. They work with our Design Department to ensure every project is produced as expected. They create templates, troubleshoot files, and finesse visual assets. Then they bring each project into its final stage, wrapping it up in a neat package. With their expertise in file management and their printing know-how, they make sure your project is delivered flawlessly.
Everybody makes mistakes, but our proofreaders catch them. Files are thoroughly reviewed and quality checked at each phase before going to clients for review. As well as ensuring every project aligns with required style guides and document formatting, our proofreaders verify consistency in artwork and identify any potential issues. But we love them anyway. We also partner with external content service providers. Just another way we make our clients’ jobs easier!
Project Management—the driving force behind every project—makes and maintains schedules and works seamlessly with clients and all our departments to keep jobs on time and on budget. With in-depth status reporting and continuous communication, there are no surprises.
“I’ve worked for a LOT of educational publishers, and Dinardo has been the best by far. Even when they make me draw dozens of bicycles in big city traffic.”

“When we needed to redesign our songbooks, Dinardo Design came up with a fresh, new look that was playful, clean, and incorporated our new illustrations and branding. We are very happy with the result, and so are the families that use them! Dinardo is always ready to help us with smaller, more routine jobs. They turn things around quickly, and they are a joy to work with.”
Marcel Chouteau, Director of Production and Distribution, Music Together Worldwide
