Welcome to the website of Chris Rosenthal Graphic Design, LLC a micro-agency based in Lexington, Ky. serving clients around the globe.

What’s a micro-agency you ask? In a nutshell, I can provide any design service you might need, static, motion, print, interactive at an award-winning level for considerably less than a full-service agency. By eliminating overhead I am able to keep the cost as low as possible. Please take a moment to review the examples provided and in the end I think you’ll agree micro is better.
