Jeremy Slagle always knew he’d become a designer someday.

Read more.

As a kid, he drew everything and anything he could think of, hung out with the designers at the advertising agency where his mom worked, and constantly took things apart to better understand them.

Always looking for new ways to solve problems, Jeremy was the kid, and later the adult, whom people turned to when they needed help expressing themselves and their ideas graphically.

Today, as the principal of his own firm, Jeremy puts his insatiable curiosity to work every day as he gets into the heads of his clients to really understand what it is they want and—perhaps more importantly—need in order to develop a memorable brand presence. With a firm belief that he is the master of his computer (and not the other way around), he works everything out on paper first to ensure that the logos he designs and the brands he creates are as thoughtful, effective and original as the clients they represent.

Jeremy lives in Clintonville with his wife Becky, two teenagers and a miniature poodle.


Casey Carmell exudes equal parts charm and creativity.

Read more.

Smart and savvy, with an exceptional eye for design, Casey has a quiet tenacity that ensures everything she touches is done thoughtfully and thoroughly. Together, she and Jeremy are a veritable design duo, capable of extraordinary things..

Interestingly, Casey began her design career collaborating with Jeremy at Element, a boutique Columbus firm. Before reconnecting with him at Slagle Design, she gained rich, hands-on experience at one of Central Ohio’s most highly acclaimed branding firms, where she helped to give personality and marketability to the region’s most adored and independently run ice cream brand.

A designer to her core, Casey geeks out about typography, the tactile nature of the printed piece, and the brand experience, both online and off. The only other things she’s as passionate about are her husband, two young children, and the charming home they share in one of Columbus’s most delightful neighborhoods.


Becky Slagle used to do math worksheets in her spare time.

A self-proclaimed “mathlete,” Becky is the left-brained partner who makes sure the team stays in the black. From authorizing payroll and managing the books to deft organizing and warm hospitality, Becky’s role is primarily behind the scenes, but it’s her consistent support that allows our team to run like a well-oiled machine.

When she’s not ensuring the world is spinning in the right direction, Becky loves to cook and spend time with her kids. She’s also an avid gym junkie who rarely sits still; she can often be spotted running or walking around the neighborhood with no apparent destination.


Scout makes sure everyone feels right at home.

Weighing in at a whopping 12 pounds, Scout prides herself in delivering the highest in hospitality services by making guests feel at home.

She is always up for a good tummy rub and is the only employee who's allowed to sniff or lick our clients.

Scout is from Logan, Ohio and came to us with little experience but has picked up the job quite naturally.


Great creative work doesn’t happen in a vacuum.

We’re proud to partner with the finest senior-level creative talent around.

We like to think of them as fellow spokes on the same wheel.

What clients are saying:

Jeremy and his firm provided me with wisdom, insight and appropriate and professional counsel and a product I could take to market in a timely fashion and at a great value. In essence, he sits on the same side of the table as the client, listens, reflects and has a capacity to “see your vision as you see it.” Our team also discovered he created several options from which to choose, all valuable, and we then selected the solution that best worked for us. You will not be disappointed.

As a writer, I’ve worked with a lot of designers, but I’ve rarely had the privilege of working with someone as intelligent, respectful, thoughtful and just plain talented as Jeremy Slagle. The truth is, it seems there’s nothing he can’t do. He’s a gifted photographer, an inspired designer, a talented illustrator, a passionate family man, and an all-around great guy. I love working with Jeremy because he respects both the process and his partners, and I always know that whatever project he takes on is going to have wonderful results.
— Christine Myers, Verb Garden, Inc.
We were faced with a very difficult challenge. We had to remake our entire image but have it line up with our existing product and reputation. I had thought that this was impossible, but after my first meeting with Jeremy I knew that he could do it. Jeremy was great to work with, and very creative. His proactive attitude was inspiring and helpful in getting the project done. The end result was miles beyond what I could have expected, and have received nothing but good reviews about it. It was probably the most beneficial investment I have made to date...that, and the hot tub full of champagne.
— Daniel McKewen, Seagull Bags

“I have worked with many designers over the years. Often they are, frankly, not good listeners. The 'trust me, I’m the designer' attitude that many have is not productive. An entrepreneur knows her brand intimately and a designer must listen very carefully, put ego aside and adjust the designs as needed.

Good design is a waltz between a designer and an entrepreneur — each person must pay close attention and move together. Jeremy is an excellent dance partner. Never leading too strongly, always in tune to the needs, wants and desires of his clients.

If you have the chance to work with Jeremy on a brand, I wholeheartedly recommend him. It’s not just his talent that makes him so special, but his nurturing, open, and understanding personality that brings the right emotion to his work.”

—Jeni Britton Bauer, Owner, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Working with Jeremy is always a great experience. His intelligence, enthusiasm, insight and of course exceptional skill have made each and every project we’ve collaborated on a big success. You don’t often find big talent like Jeremy’s without big ego, but that is never a concern. He’s an extraordinary artist as well as damn fine human being. Not a bad combo.
— Mike Beaumont, Spacejunk Media
We could not be more pleased with the work that Jeremy has done for us. We gave him the challenge of re-designing our brand. As artists ourselves it was difficult to hand over the reigns of something so close to us. But Jeremy listened to exactly what we needed, took the time to understand our brand and produced work that far exceeded our expectations. We could not be more pleased with the results.
— Catherine Lang-Cline, Portfolio Creative Service
We knew that we needed a new look for our beers, but we were not sure what direction to go. Jeremy helped us define what we wanted and then delivered even more. In the first 30 days of launching our new packaging we saw growth of over 50% and we have not slowed down.
