About Us

Riven [riv·ən] to split with force or violence
Design [di-ˈzīn] the arrangement of elements or details in a product or work of art

The idea for Riven Design came from our desire to move beyond the traditional limitations of a medium while maintaining the integrity of the message.

Riven Design is a company based out of Bismarck, ND but our designers have national experience ranging from Seattle, WA to Washington, DC.  The oft touted phrase of "No job is too big or too small"  applies to Riven Design.  In print media, our designers have done jobs as small as designing business cards to promotional materials for corporations with large constituencies.  Our web experience ranges from redesigning personal blogs to corporate websites.

Douglas Tschetter, our Sr. Designer/Art Director, has 16 years of graphic/web design experience.  He has worked independently and as an in-house designer in corporate, government, and educational settings.  In addition, he has 6 years of experience designing websites meeting accessibility requirements including 508 compliance.

"Graphic Design is, to me, a blending of Art and Communication. Creating an effective and interesting framework with which to present information. As a Graphic Designer I have to be both an artist who can visualize a design, and a technician who can bring that design to life. It is an odd combination of artistic inspiration and technical know-how, a graphical jack-of-all-trades." - Douglas Tschetter, Sr. Designer
