At Hillhouse Graphic Design, our goal is not to be bigger. Our goal is to be better. We use creative ideas, marketing and advertising experience, patience, good listening skills, and excellent design to improve our clients' success and help them reach their goals.


We work toward true partnership with our clients, using our skills and talents to help promote their business or association effectively. We provide a level of quality that competes in a national market with work from larger full-service advertising and design companies. We do quality work, and we give work back to the community. We are active participants in our clients' growth and increased profitability.

Our work has staying power--logos we designed in our earliest years are still in use today. Our company has staying power--we've been a recognized force in the design and advertising community of our region since 1984. Hillhouse Graphic Design serves as a resource for our clients, providing a reservoir of information and skills to help them communicate and compete effectively.

Making a difference

Our size and connections to the community provide opportunities for our skills to advance worthwhile causes that benefit the region and beyond—organizations such as the Worldwide Education Resources’ Education in a Box, United Way of Greater Kingsport, Barter Theatre, Symphony of the Mountains, and the International Storytelling Center.

When it comes to responsiveness, this company has raised the bar.”

We have been thrilled with the cover, and it seems to have especially attracted people’s interest. Last weekend . . . it sold the most any single title has sold so far.” -
~Timothy Seaman, musician
We are so lucky this unique experience has been recorded in this friendly, accessible and thorough way. The design of the book by Jane Hillhouse, art director of Storytelling Magazine, allows the reader in on a conversation among the artists. . . In this way, each company’s joy and struggle is experienced intimately, and important issues are examined from both sides.”
