Nick Crossen

Owner & Lead Designer

Hi, I'm Nick, but my family calls me Duke. I received my BA from Stevenson University in Visual Communication. I harnessed my artistic talents by mastering the technical skills of graphic design. My passion for being creative has never wavered, so I decided to start this business with a dream of becoming the go-to graphic designer for Maryland businesses and families. My dream is slowly but surely becoming a reality thanks to the help of my teammate and future wife, Chelsea. Together, we are the unstoppable powerhouse that is Duke Design Co. We're looking forward to turning your dreams into designs!

Chelsea Sheckells

Director of Marketing & Client Relations

Hi, I'm Chelsea, Nick's much better half. I'm not as gifted or skilled in the art department as Nick, but I have an extremely creative side! I graduated from Stevenson University with a BS in Business Communication. My passion for branding and marketing has lead me to working for some of the most well-known, global brands. When it comes to design, I'm the idea-man; I leave the hard part of actually creating it to Nick. When you hire us, you get my expertise in branding and marketing along with Nick's technical and artistic skillset. We're agency-good at a non-agency price. So let's get started!
