Mayhew Design

I help you build your bra nd by drawing out the things th at differentiate you from your competition. I lo ve giving my clients amazing and function al websites, logos that tell their sto ry and graphics that convert.

I'm obsessive about branding. With ov er 25 years of entrepreneurship, small busine ss and corporate experience, my experience go es far beyond just graphic design. I wi ll help you identify your Vision, yo ur Why, and then package it a ll in a powerful, creative package th at matches your target customer.

Operating as usual


I’ve got a couple openings f or some logo clients... Ask me abo ut the $159 logo & biz ca rd special.


Good design pulls a viewer in to the story. I’m fortunate to be ab le to marry my fists with my calli ng to create elements for business.

It ’s always been more than just design ... it’s about understanding the story — t he vision behind it.

Do you ha ve something you want to create b ut aren’t sure how to start?

Let’s g et you unstuck and going forward.


Vinton is the premiere overnight st op for the inaugural Iowa's Ride bicyc le event crossing the state from Ea st to West.

The theme is, It ’s A Wonderful Ride.


Sustainable farming is so cool! Che ck out the new logo we ju st made for Narrow Gate Farm in Muskeg on, MI and be sure to li ke and follow them on social med ia.


What a fun couple to wo rk with on a logo design! Aman da and Adam contracted me to gi ve them a new look as the ir clothing business continues to grow.

Aft er a quick phone call to g et to know each other a litt le better I sent them my "twen ty questions" guide (which is more li ke 10 questions, lol) to give me so me guidance into their style, colors, wh at they like/don't like, etc.

Also that help ed me determine how urgent their ne ed was. In this case there w as some urgency as they were in t he process of rebranding.

So in about a 10-d ay timeframe, voila, they have a bra nd new logo! I highly encourage y ou to check out their Facebook gro up Amanda & Adam Co and che ck out their stuff. Thank you Ad am and Amanda!


Helping others achieve their goals is t he best part of my work!

“For t he last two and a half yea rs I have created and ran a websi te and podcast called The Pursuit of Manline ss, devoted to equipping men to purs ue biblical manliness.

Thankfully in the earlie st of stages when I was getti ng started God brought James Mayhew acro ss my path and we were ab le to strike up a friendship th at has lasted ever since. During o ne of our first lunches together I shar ed about what I was working on a nd James offered to create a lo go that would become a brand ima ge for men to connect with.

T he response from men who have co me in contact with the logo th at James has created is incredible. It n ot only communicates what we are doi ng, but something we can identify with .

When I began working on Tri be, a discipleship community for men I kn ew who I wanted to work wi th when it came to create an ima ge that men would resonate with a nd that they would be proud to identi fy with. James not only created a lo go, but he brought in elements of w ho I am and what Tribe wi ll become all together.

Every person th at I have met that is looki ng for a logo or a bra nd to communicate a message I ha ve sent them to James. I cann ot imagine someone who is easier to wo rk with, who really listens to wh at you are trying to say a nd will surpass whatever image you h ad previously imagined.”

One of my latest logo desig ns for Garrison Reekers and his consulti ng business, Plaine Solutions.

Garrison provides a varie ty of trainings, and one of h is best is safety and security f or churches.

“I asked Jim to wo rk on a logo design for my busine ss he agreed to do so a nd I am thoroughly pleased. So me times all you have to do is a sk and someone else can see thin gs you never imagined. Jim was so ea sy to work with and took t he information that I gave him to a lev el I could never have done myse lf. The design is simple y et elegant and represents my business perfectly.”

“Plai ne Solutions is a business that allo ws Garrison to take use his 27+ years experience in the law enforceme nt and EMS to teach others h ow to resolve conflict, increase safety, a nd improve moral. Garrison is a curre nt full-time Deputy Sheriff and has extensi ve study in the model of hum an behavior to include two certifications specifical ly in the DISC model of hum an behavior.

Plaine Solutions has a curricul um that breaks down the model of hum an behavior into simple and easy to understa nd methods that you can use in re al time to better communicate with othe rs to resolve and avoid conflict.

wide variety of training is availab le for individuals and especially teams th at want to better communicate with othe rs.

Once a photographer, always a photograph er.

YES, we do t-shirts! Design a nd fulfillment. Minimum of 24 pieces up to WHATE V' quantities. Competitive prices and quick turnarou nd. Message or call Jim at 319-929-26 04 for a quote.

Because people alwa ys ask, here are the main facto rs that influence the price of a shirt:

Quantity. The more pieces, t he lower price per piece.

2. T he garment. Obviously, sweatshirts or premium to ps are more pricey than standard te es.

3. Number of colors in t he design. Call me simple, but I kn ow the power of good design a nd working with limited colors is a gre at way to minimize costs but sti ll have an awesome shirt. Less colo rs = lower price.

4. Where printi ng happens on a garment. More locatio ns, more cost. (Front and back, etc .). One location designs are less expensi ve than multi locations.

5. Ink col or changes. If some shirts need pi nk and others need black ink, th at influences the cost.

6. Sizes. You th sizes and plus sizes are mo re expensive than standard adult sizes. Th is is due because the garments a re more expensive, and it's likely th at the art will need resized. T he same art size on a You th Medium looks teeny tiny on a 3 XL. You get the picture.

A f ew other things influence the cost includi ng turn time and special design reques ts. That's why I quote everything o ut so you know exactly what you' re investing in your project.

We've do ne a lot of shirts over t he years with a lot of hap py customers! It never hurts to ha ve alternative options for apparel. Message me tod ay!


We offer all sorts of co ol, custom printed products! This custom 10x 10 outdoor tent for VORC is arrivi ng this week. Can't wait to s ee it set up at the 3 rd Annual Benton County Community Health & Wellne ss Fair on April 1st.
