Who We Are
About the VanDuzers
In 2010, husband and wife team David (the tech-savvy designer) and Rachel (the business-minded communication professional) decided to channel their expertise and mutual artistic energy into their work for VanDuzer Design & Marketing.
Over the last 13 years we’ve worked with hard-working family farms, unique food retailers, impactful non-profits, vibrant ministries and more. We continued our work without skipping a beat even while living abroad for 5 years! Now we’ve settled in New Hampshire and enjoy the snowy mountains and pristine lakes here. We work well remotely and love aligning ourselves with clients whose mission we’re also passionate about!
In order to deliver the best possible quality work, we have created a network of consultants and business owners with specialties and strengths that contribute to the goals of VanDuzer Design & Marketing. Below are a few of our regular contributors.
