Design is about more than looking good.
It's about effective communication. Reaching your customers takes careful planning, a good strategy, and a clear message. At Destination Designs, we combine years of digital media experience and modern design to create solutions that meet every business's needs.
Beautiful. Functional. Responsive.
Our websites lead with design, but making it look good is only the beginning. We go the extra mile to make sure everything works exactly the way it should - on every device.
Robust, yet user-friendly.
Whether you want your site to give some general information or if you plan on operating an e-commerce business, we do the hard part of making sure your website does what it's supposed to. All you have to do is use drag n drop tools to keep it up to date.
Your logo is your first impression - it should be a good one. We can work with your existing logo to make it more versatile for the digital space or, we can start from scratch and create something completely custom.
Photography & Video
The quality of a website's images can make or break a users perception. With access to the world's best libraries of stock photos and the ability to shoot custom photos and videos, we can deliver a site that looks clean and professional throughout every page.
We'll support your brand and deliver your message by creating print materials, ads, brochures and more using your logo, and colors. Having a consistent look and feel across all of your materials assures your company is recognized in the blink of an eye.
Here for you!
Having a website and a marketing campaign is essential to your business. Providing exceptional customer support is essential to ours. We service our clients in a region that allows us to interact with our clients on a more personal level.

"Get your head out of the boat!"
Destination Designs started as a small project to bring Schaffner Publications, Inc. into the digital era as the web design arm to the legacy print publications. I graduated with a degree in Eastern Philosophy and Western Civilization (the ying, the yang, and the bang bang) from the University of Life Experience. I partnered the efforts of my own Toledo based AYCDesign agency with Schaffner Publications, Inc. in the summer of 2013. With my background in development, design, as well as advertising media sales, I bring a complete package to the Destination Designs portfolio, and am able to consult businesses through the entire process of building a digital presence.
"Don't give up the ship!"
President and CEO of Schaffner Publications, Inc. and partner in Destination Designs. When you are in the newspaper business, and have been for 40 years, it's impossible not to understand the importance of Digital Marketing in our current media environment. So, that is why we have determined to create a digital marketing services arm to our organization. I may not understand everything about this "Brave New World" ... but I'm learning, proving once again that "you can teach an old dog new tricks!
"The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary"
I moved to Port Clinton in 1976 and am a Port Clinton High School graduate. Having my own daycare business for 19 years, as well as working in the restaurant and education fields, has helped me to develop many lasting relationships in the area. As an account executive for Destination Designs, I look forward to helping people and their businesses reach their future goals.

"Failure is always an option"
I'm originally from Illinois but I've lived in Ohio for more about 5 years. I'm proud to call this home. I've been interested in design since highschool and just started designing for real-world clients about 4 years ago. Being self-taught, I've learned to never be afraid to try and fail - there's always a lesson to be learned. I love designing things I like to look at and things that communicate well. Working with Destination Designs is an amazing opportunity to work with some great people and create great products
