What can we design for you?

Together, we’ll create a customized design package that suits your needs. Our design packages can include:



Data Visualization

Digital Marketing

Social Media Graphics


Research Reports

Logos & Branding

Our Work

STBW Display print

Save The Boundary Waters

STBW’s mission is just that: to preserve the precious boundary waters in Minnesota. We worked with them to create several brochures, infographics, reports, and an animation that describe their work, why it’s important, and what citizens can do to help.

Providence Service Corporation

We created a report for PSC to show the positive outcomes of their Virtual Residential Program. Using data, images, and visualization, we created a compelling report that works well in print and online.



Howard County Health Department

HCHD needed to publicize the results of their annual health survey. We created several trend-based infographics, shareable social media graphics, and a website to help them communicate the findings with healthcare providers and citizens.

"Simplicity Metrics understands the substance of our policy research, and they know how to communicate it effectively. They are easy to work with. They deliver what we need when we need it."

− Neil L. Bergsman, Director, Maryland Budget & Tax Policy Institute

"The staff at Simplicity Metrics are creative, collaborative and easy to work with. They have helped our organization understand the power of visualizing our data, and their widely-shared infographic has helped our site get over 10,000 likes on Facebook."

− Jo Comerford, Executive Director, National Priorities Project

"Simplicity Metrics has a real gift for making data meaningful and integrating technology and design. Most firms can do one or the other, but it is rare to find a group that can do it all."

− Heather Iliff, Director, Maryland Nonprofits Consulting Group

"We were delighted with how quickly and beautifully Simplicity Metrics created an engaging, innovative presentation (think Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother). And their professionalism and commitment to every detail of the process was wonderfully reassuring. But most remarkable? Their active listening and thoughtful strategic advice that allowed us to think more creatively about our educational objectives. These folks aren’t just technically savvy communication experts, they are also educators who know how to explain and empower."

− Sara Collina, Health Policy Consultant, Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute

"Working with Simplicity Metrics adds real value to the information we want to communicate to the community. A partner that can translate data into more accessible formats and presentations makes our work- whether it’s building partnerships, informing the public and policymakers, or seeking funding- much more effective."

− Nancy Lewin, Director of Health Policy and Communications, Howard County Health Department

"The Simplicity Metrics consultant we worked with is an impressive relations adviser; she is enjoyable to be with, skilled at finding core messages and a mentor for interpersonal communications. In just a few hours she helped us improve our website, coached us on exploring our idea with critics and helped us uncover our true goal, ‘Better Internet for All’. We look forward to learning more from Simplicity Metrics as we grow!"

− Phil Gapp, Community Wide Web

"Simplicity Metrics does just what they say: Make complex data simple and relatable. I work with clients to distill strategy and policy issues for a variety of audiences, and Simplicity Metrics has proven to be a valuable partner in translating our messages into compelling visuals and polished, professional presentations."
