Great Design is a Superpower

who are we?

As a young and passionate designer, our fearless leader, Tina Cardosi, started TM Design way back in 1995. She had a vision of working hand-in-hand with clients creating great design and smiles all around. Over two decades later, she is still living the dream by working with her team to create award-winning work and therefore, chipper clients.

TM Design is an approachable group of people who love what we do. Our team is handy and easy to work with. Our goal is to make your job a piece of cake and for you to look top notch. Behind the scenes, we are serious about our craft and have many standards in place to stay on top of timelines and project management. We try to take the stress off of your plate and let you focus on your expertise. Consider us an extended member of your team!

it’s not about us…it’s about you

Got a vision? Our team will make it happen for you.

We’ve gotten great results for local, regional and national clients, from non-profits to retail to business-to-business and Fortune 1000 firms. But we don’t design for art’s sake. We want to know about you and your needs. We listen, ask questions and solve problems. Then we brainstorm and exchange ideas. Our team gets results for you because in marketing communications results are what really count.

We are really good at this stuff. Come find out for yourself.

Design for you, not for us

Your business is our business. Your organization isn’t like the rest and your marketing collateral shouldn’t be either.

Over 70 awards!

Personalized attention

We treat our clients like they are our only client. Our team provides exemplary customer service, open communication, and of course, some hand-holding, if need be.

Large firm solutions, small firm price

We provide superior service at an affordable price and stick to the original agreed-upon budget. If the scope of work does change, we will discuss options with you. Surprises are fun, but not at invoice time!


Client connections

We build strong long-term relationships with all our clients which helps us to better understand their needs and respond quickly. Consider us family!

Extension of your staff

We are like a trusted member of your team. Your knowledge and expertise combined with our creative talent makes an awesome partnership. High-five!


Old-fashioned practices, new-fashioned ideas

We work diligently, respect our clients and their work, respond in a timely manner, and honor deadlines. We come to work to serve our clients, not our egos.

Kudos from clients

Who is a better measuring stick than our own clients? A happy client is the best form of advertising!


Happy people

We are an upbeat, down-to-earth group and enjoy working with our clients. We like to smile. : )


Most importantly, we love what we do!

Great customer service and award-winning design

Teamwork + Creativity + Professionalism

That about sums it up.

Our staff calls TM Design “the northern WGTS office.” That’s how important they are to our company. They treat our projects like our own and go out of their way to make our brand shine and to help us serve our listeners.

The TM Design Team has been the perfect partner for our Catalyst Schools. We feel they have a deep understanding of who we are by providing designs that reflect our schools' true character. TM Design is masterful in bridging those creative designs with our true essence. The result is a look and feel of our publications and website that we are proud to share. The team listens to us well and is efficient in its turn-around times.

– Ed Siderewicz, Co-Founder & Director of Mission & External Relations, Catalyst Schools

From our logo to our entire branding package TM Design has provided a fresh yet comfortable design nicely targeted to our audience. Their consistent and thoughtful expertise has really made a difference for us as we serve the Nation’s Capital.

– Kevin Krueger, President/General Manager, WGTS 91.9

In our global program, we work with emerging market businesses that need a strong brand that tells a story and enhances the image of the company. TM Design delivered this and more. The final results were outstanding, inspirational, and met our “good design is good business” goals.

There are so many talented people in the world; therefore there are many design firms to choose from. I found Tina Cardosi before she started TM Design – and was immediately impressed with her eye for design; her ability to hear what we wanted, and translate that into something amazing; and the ease of working with her – there is never any stress. I have had experience with other design firms, and none measure up to TM Design.
