inmanmuseum.com – I believe that the museum in Inman, Kansas, is one of the best-kept secrets in the state. It’s more than just a small, rural town’s archive of trinkets and photos; the museum houses around a dozen room-size dioramas depicting 1800 and early 1900 culture and business, a life-size 1800s village square constructed out […]
The recent branding work Hillsboro MB did over the first half of 2014 prompted the church to order a complete stationery set, including letterhead, envelopes and business cards for staff members.
hillsboroac.com – In the late summer of 2014 I had the opportunity to redesign the Hillsboro Animal Clinic website. The new design features a full-width layout, simplified navigation, unique page design elements (with a parallax effect) and bold, large photos (take by local photographer Vance Frick).
In the spring of 2014 I had the opportunity to design and print promotion brochures for Bethany Home, a continuous care retirement center in Lindsborg, Kansas. The design styling for this built on the website I designed for the home earlier (bethanyhome.com), and was instrumental in establishing the branding artwork that we went on to […]
During the summer of 2014, I ran a “The Summer of the App” promotion in Hillsboro. The first nibble came from the manager of the Hillsboro and Marion Ampride Cenex stores. What resulted is this full-featured app that is available for free in Apple’s App Store and for Android devices in Google Play. The app’s […]
In the spring of 2013 I worked with Golden Heritage Foods (now Barkman Honey) in Hillsboro, KS, to develop packaging artwork for a new product line that was in development. One of the two final pieces for the presentation, this was a more homemade, “farmer’s market” style, featuring post-consumer paper and rich colors.
This design was created for the Tabor College Student Senate in early 2012. The plastic cards were distributed to students for discounts at area businesses.
bethanyhome.com – This website for Bethany Home, a continuous care retirement center in Lindsborg, Kansas, went live in the early spring of 2014. In addition to its wide, modern design, the website features a strong emphasis on photography, an interactive cost calculator, news streams and extensive information about the facility. The site is built to […]
This piece of identification was created for the Southern District of Mennonite Brethren Churches Youth Commission for its 2014 camps, conferences and programing.
Built for demonstration purposes only, this was used to show prospective churches what they could expect from an app developed by Revelation Graphic Arts (a subsidiary of Vogel Design) at a summer conference in 2013.
For a small Kansas community, the city of Inman has an impressive vision for the future and preservation of the past. This is most apparent at the Inman Museum, a gem of an attraction along Main Street. In addition to the predictable artifacts, the museum features a complete 1800s town square–built from 100+ year-old wood […]
Artwork for “Facing the Feelings of Life,” a sermon series at Hillsboro MB Church in the spring of 2013.
In the spring of 2013 I worked with Golden Heritage Foods (now Barkman Honey) in Hillsboro, KS, to develop packaging artwork for a new product line that was in development. One of the two final pieces for the presentation, this is the more modern, supermarket-y style, featuring bright colors and strong lines.
In the fall of 2010 Olde Towne Restaurant, a local tradition, finally reopened. Though the restaurant has since closed again, the business cards still look nice.
The youth pastor at Hillsboro MB Church commissioned this design. Ask one of the youth group members for the meaning. I think you’ll find it inspirational.
This logo for Hillsboro MB Church in Hillsboro, KS, was approved in January of 2014. The requests that the logo be Christ-centric, have a feeling of openness and appeal to the broad cross-section of members.
An impression of a very stylized white flag was used as the basis for this January 2014 sermon series at Hillsboro MB Church.
Used for a summer 2014 sermon series through the book of Galatians at Hillsboro MB Church.

Vogel Design, a Hillsboro-based digital and print design studio operated by David Vogel, was honored this month with three 2014 American Graphic Design Award certificates, recognizing outstanding new work and design excellence.
The national competition is sponsored by Graphic Design USA magazine.
For five decades, GDUSA has sponsored a range of national design competitions, and its American Graphic Design Awards is the original and the flagship, open to the entire creative community: design firms, ad agencies, corporations, non-profits, institutions and more. It honors outstanding new work in 23 categories from print and packaging to Internet and interactive design.
“I’m excited and honored to have my work recognized by the national design community,” Vogel said. “I love what I do, and receiving these three certificates is an appreciated affirmation that I’m doing it
David B. Vogel is an award-winning graphic designer based in Hillsboro, Kansas. As a child he branded and created signage for his summertime start-up, Yellow Giraffe Lemonade, and has been passionate about design, web development, new technologies and marketing ever since.
Vogel focused on art, design and publishing in high school, and received recognition in 2008 from Music Theatre of Wichita in its Jester Awards program for outstanding graphic/playbill design. He graduated from Tabor College in 2012 with a bachelor of arts in Communications Studies, and minors in Integrated Marketing and English.
Before founding his full-time studio, Vogel worked as a graphic designer for Lenexa Christian Center, a megachurch in the Kansas City area, and at the Hillsboro Free Press as a web developer and graphic artist. In 2014, Vogel received two awards from Midwest Free Community Papers for ad design, as did his redesign of the Free Press website, and was also awarded three certificates of excellence for his work in a national contest by Graphic Design USA magazine.
It’s no accident that Vogel based his design studio in the heart of small-town Kansas. “Creative firms are often out of the financial reach of rural Main Street businesses,” he said. “My aim is to fill this gap; to provide high quality, effective design and marketing materials at an economical price.”
