de Val Grafik Source's design philosophy is simple and straight forward - minimalistic, uncluttered and brilliant in a simple 'crispy-clean' approach - devoid of design elements and uncalled-for colors that distract from content. Our designs are coherent in the marriage of words and elements, flawlessly giving visual synergy to the blend, and; thus inducing the readers' interest by simple composition and well-thought placement of photographs, charts. tables and such. However, our 'business sense' accepts and understands the subjectivity of art and the likes and dislikes of our clients, and thus we strive to meet and compose based on stylistic demands, color preferences and established formats - all of which is considered together with the material's content and target audience.
