Glad you asked. We are talented individuals with a common goal: helping you reach your goals. It is important for you to meet us, because we will be working together closely. Our clients view us as their in-house design team. Some communicate with us on a stream-of-consciousness basis, while others lay out highly structured marketing plans. Either way is fine with us. What we do is respond. This relationship is not only integral to the design process, but also allows us to create according to the needs and desires of the clients. Our mission and vision statement will tell you the details of our company but the root of it is this: we create branding and marketing materials that attract success. Yours and ours – it's the same thing.

Anastasia Tanis
Principal

Since founding Anastasia Design, Anastasia Tanis has given dozens of organizations more than they bargained for—in a very positive way. She brings to any table a unique, a powerful blend of skills and experience. Her clients, which range from international companies to local start-ups, reap the benefits. Anastasia has crafted ads that have appeared in publications worldwide, and she had led multi-national, multi-faceted marketing campaigns.

Prior positions Anastasia has held include everything from newspaper advertising manager to P.R. professional. She is also an avid networker: this keeps her finger on the pulse of trends in a wide variety of fields, and provides a huge pool of business contacts and vendors, which can be invaluable. Her selection of certain printers for specific jobs often saves clients enough money to pay for all of her firm’s strategic and creative work—to give but one example.

Anastasia has excellent listening skills; combined with her experience and resources, they give her a "top of the mountain" perspective on her clients’ challenges, as well as paths to success. She also has the energy and enthusiasm to turn creative visions into business realities. The excellence of her work is recognized not only by her clients, but also by the prestigious organizations that have given her numerous international awards.

Outside the office, Anastasia continuously refines her skills in karate. She also has a passion for travel: trips to countries around the world are a potent source of creative insight and inspiration.

Kirk Etherton
copywriter

Kirk has worked as full-time and freelance writer for over 15 years. During that time he has created works in virtually all media, for clients ranging from high-tech and hospitality to financial services and higher education. Print ad campaigns and other work for the Mass. Convention Center Authority won numerous international awards; a public health anti-smoking T.V. spot he wrote won an Emmy Award. Other accolades include a number of wins at the notoriously competitive New England Hatch Awards Show.

With a strong background in photography and alternative visual arts, Kirk’s concepts frequently don’t rely on words alone. Kirk is also know for generating a significant quantity of quality ideas: on many occasions, clients have been unable to choose a single print ad, radio or direct mail concept, and have instead allocated the resources to execute a number of their favorites. Kirk believes strongly that any assignment is an opportunity to do excellent, award-winning work.

Beyond the ad world, Kirk’s interests include songwriting, writing and performing standup comedy, and writing poetry (which may or may not be serious). He is also an award-winning playwright.
