February signified 25 years of business for Vision Design Group. Our Winona-based website design and digital marketing company provides customized expertise to hundreds of businesses in the Winona, La Crosse and surrounding communities.
Vision Design Group began 25 years ago when three partners joined together in a one-room office located at 111 Market Street to create graphics for print media and apparel. That is a stark difference from today as a company that works from an office that overlooks the beautiful Mississippi River and employs a staff of 12 marketing, creative and technical experts that pride themselves on excellent customer service. Vision Design Group currently provides Web Design and Digital Marketing, Logo Branding, Graphic Design, and Commercial, Studio & 360 Photography Services.
25 Years is a milestone to be proud of; yet, current owners Bill Katula, Matt Marrinan and Dan Trainor III know that this company would not be anywhere without their clients. Matt Marrinan explained that, “It is the people we have worked with that has made 25 years in this business possible. Each client that has walked through our doors has played a role in who we are today. They have supported us through the years and I am truly thankful to everyone who chose us for their design and marketing needs.”
When asked about the last 25 years and the growth of the company, Bill Katula stated, “Rapid advances in technology require agility. We are not the same company today we were 5 years ago, let alone 25. The one constant has been our desire to provide excellent customer service and to create relationships with our clients…that is what has made Vision Design successful and what will continue to propel us forward.”
True to his word, through each twist and turn of the web design and marketing industry, Vision Design Group has been advancing and evolving to fit the market to provide the best services for our clients. In 1994, that meant advertising in traditional media like phone books. Now, our customer’s ads are being displayed on smartphones!
With online retailing requirements expanding, Vision Design has become one of the few companies in the area that provides new services including 360º virtual tours for enhanced user experience and 360º product views as online market demands evolve.
Matt added; “I can’t see the demand for aesthetically good design ever going away. Although it will continue to evolve in many ways, there will always be a need for marketing and creative services. Our goal at Vision Design Group has always been to offer genuine and professional service for each client to help enhance the success of their business. That is something that will never change.”
