About CMS Design


Carolyn SchiffnerCMS Design is a woman-owned business located in Oak Park, IL with a diverse base of clients in the Chicago area and beyond. As an independent designer, I have a passion for small businesses, startups and nonprofit organizations who share my enthusiasm of mission and vision. My work reflects a commitment to providing professional, affordable design for everyone.

There's a reason my client partnerships span decades. Developing a deep understanding and trusted working relationship with my clients is just as important as delivering creative and effective design solutions.

For all my clients, concept development begins with listening. An understanding of your products, services, competitors and marketplace, provides the basis for creating strategic and successful communications. Delivering smart solutions doesn't mean sacrifice stunning aesthetics. My work stands apart visually, balancing a functional approach to design with bold, beautiful use of typographic form and spatial organization.
