Our beginnings

When Black Goose Art & Design quietly opened its doors eight months ago, it was a grand experiment with one goal — to offer high-quality, affordable creative services in west-central Nebraska. We wanted to explore how professional artists could enrich our community, assist civic organizations, and meet the needs of local small businesses and families. The response was overwhelming.
"It was incredible. So many people — even more than I imagined — were in search of something new, something better," says Sage Merritt, founder and lead designer at Black Goose. "Local businesses and entrepreneurs were tired of spending a fortune just for cookie-cutter clipart, or resorting to big-city agencies hundreds of miles away. Community service organizations needed a professional creative partner to help them grow. Families wanted contemporary photography and print products that didn't break their budget. So many needs weren't being met — until we opened Black Goose."

Like many of today's successful businesses, Black Goose began with an experimental phase. During the first six months, we offered a only select group of services, and accepted only a limited number of clients — all the better to study customer demand and fine-tune our products. In November 2013, we temporarily closed our doors to all new projects, so we could focus on testing and development.

Today, we're proud to announce the Jan. 6 opening of Black Goose Art & Design as a full-service creative agency. Want to find out how all our hard work can help you? Contact us today.
