The Purpose

Detour Graphic Design & New Media Inc. is a graphic design and photography studio headquartered in St. Charles, IL. We’ve been quietly earning a reputation for excellence since opening our doors in 1998. Our specialty is advertising, identity, packaging, print collateral and product/lifestyle photography.

The Environment

At Detour Graphic Design we place absolute value on both creativity and originality. We believe that the right environment fosters creativity and outstanding design. So how do we separate ourselves from the pack? We hired world-renowned architect Keith Youngquist, of Dacre & Youngquist, to design our office. We promise just as much time and attention to detail in our work as we do our creative environment. We invite you to come check out both!

that stand out from the competition.

Detour Graphic Design Inc Astellas

Do you like flipping through beautiful, high-gloss, textured brochures of advertising companies that seem way cooler than yours? Didn’t think so. Your products are better than theirs, your employees are better than theirs, and, hey, your products are of higher quality! So why aren’t you advertising the way your company deserves? Change things up and give us a call. We will work with you to create unique marketing pieces exclusive to both your industry and businesses’ needs.

Detour Inc. photography

Photography is a critical aspect of successful marketing pieces, because, lets face it, you don’t read about beautiful design you see it. When it comes to photographing your products/business you could cut corners and hire someone with a DSLR and one semester of Photo 101 under their organic, fair-trade belt. Or you could call our team of expert photographers, retouchers and prepress professionals to capture everything from single-product to dynamic advertising shots and everything in between. Our photographers know a picture is worth 1,000 words; what will yours say?

Detour Inc Olcott Plastics

Are you projecting the right image with your current brand and identity?

In order to deliver a quality message, with a long-lasting impression, you have to utilize marketing materials people will associate with your products and services. Our design process implements research and refinement in order to achieve award-winning campaigns that are highly regarded by both our clients and peers.
