Current business start up date and why you think you have been successful:

I worked at Ad Agency businesses throughout the Bay Area since 1979 picking up valuable experience. I started Garson Design Services in August of 1992 after having enough of a daily commute to an Ad Agency in Sausalito. I took the big leap out of the corporate world and into self employment. We just celebrated our 10th year anniversary. A lot of our success is due to hiring young local men and woman and teaching them valuable work and creative skills.. Our studio provides big city graphic design experience at small town pricing. We provide a variety of creative services such as advertising, brochures, logos, illustration, slides, websites and much much more.

Have donated time, money, services to:
Fairfield Downtown Association
Fairfield Visual Arts Association
Gomer School Historical Association
Student mentoring for Fairfield High School
