Get to Know The Deep End from The Deep End on Vimeo.

We offer full service custom WordPress design, web design, logo design & more to businesses in Chicago & around the country.
Here’s what we can do for you:



Do you need a strong internet presence that you can easily manage and update in-house? In the past, this meant knowing how to code a site yourself, but thanks to WordPress, the process is now incredibly easy. We can design a custom WordPress site from the ground up, and show you how to manage it yourself, allowing you the freedom to make changes and additions as your business grows.



Your logo is the face of your brand, and it’s our job to make it memorable. We work with you to create a unique, stylish and professional identity that sets the right tone and establishes a consistent brand message. We can also help you create a strict set of brand guidelines to be followed by any graphic designer or in-house team you may work with in the future.



Some things just look best on paper. Brochures, posters and product packaging are just a few, and we do them all very well. We work with several great print houses in Los Angeles, which means we can handle the entire process, from the initial design to the printing phase.

Welcome to The Deep End!

The Deep End is a full service graphic and web design studio located in Chicago, specializing in custom WordPress design. Started as an alternative to the big design firms that seem to care more about winning awards for themselves, we prefer to focus on the needs of our clients. At The Deep End, we’re smaller and that’s a good thing. It means are are able to adapt easily, work efficiently, and think creatively. We get to know our clients and what they need in order to take their business to the next level. So, what exactly do we do around here? The short answer is: We’re here to make you look good.


(Here’s the long answer)

Our services fall into 3 main categories: web design, logos and branding, and print design. Within those categories, we do just about everything.


Web Design in Chicago & Beyond

If you have a small to medium sized business, the last thing you want is an out of date or under-performing website. At The Deep End, we focus on designing and building websites that are easily updateable by our clients, so they can add new content whenever they need to. A lot of people think of web design as purely visual, but we actually  start with functionality and user experience best practices, so that people will stick around your site longer, and are more likely to turn into actual customers. Once the function part is nailed down, we can concentrate on the form, giving your site an aesthetic that not only looks great today, but will be around for the long haul.


Custom WordPress Design

When it comes to websites, we prefer to focus on WordPress. Not just for bloggers anymore, a custom WordPress design can look as unique as your business, and have the functionality to match. A custom WordPress website will be able to grow as your business does. We come up with the design, then we teach you (or someone on your staff) how to manage it. And fear not, it is a very easy process on your part.


Logo Design

We also handle a lot of logo designs, as well as redesigns for clients who need an updated look. A logo needs to be striking, recognizable and appropriate to your business and customers. We do logos across all industries, and for companies of all sizes. Our logos run the gamut from corporate and polished to more quirky and fun. It really just depends on your business.


Print & Packaging Design

If you need anything designed for print, we do a lot of that as well. Packaging, posters, brochures, you name it. If it involves ink and paper, we’ve got it covered.


Because we’re a full service agency, we also offer professional copywriting, search engine optimization services, and we can even give your web presence some extra personality with fully-produced web videos like the one at the top of this page.


So, now that you’re here, feel free to check out some of our work, watch some of our success story videos, and you can even request a price quote for your project using the button at the top of the page. In any case, we’re just glad you found us, and we sincerely hope that our next success story can be yours. Thanks for diving into The Deep End.
