Dale Champlin’s Graphic Design is imbued with poetry and art. Her collages visually expand the writing she reads and absorbs. Little Body Book’s cover consistently attracts the reader’s eye eliciting comments and curiosity. As a sometimes hard to work for artist, writer and critic, I highly recommend Champlin Design.

It was a pleasure working with Dale Champlin. In addition to being a talented designer, she’s a good communicator who made a concerted effort to understand and respond to my needs. She is also a team player and will do whatever it takes to make things go right. In addition, her services are reasonably priced. I enjoyed working with her so much that I am asking her to design my next book cover.
With her years of experience in graphic design, Dale Champlin has a unique talent for book design. She helped me get from manuscript to chapbook quickly and for that I am extremely grateful. I plan to work with her again as soon as I have another project ready.
For most of her life, Dale Champlin has been a corporate graphic designer. Her many clients include Adidas, Oregon Symphony, Oregon Historical Society, and Hanna Andersson.
