About Us

Bean Design got their start back in 1997. While finishing up a degree in fine arts at Appalachian State University, owner, Brian Bean purchased his first business license and started selling photographic prints on the streets of Boone, NC. The business was born as Bean Images. Shortly thereafter Brian took a position as a photography assistant and relocated to Hickory, NC. Bean Images continued to flourish over the next few years as they gained a new and exciting client base. Around the year 2000 Bean Images was reborn into who we are today Bean Design. With our first corporate account under our belt we continued to grow and develop new skill sets to better serve our ever-changing client base.

Since the inception of our business we have worked with many clients in a wide array of markets. These challenges of working within different markets has given us the flexibility and knowhow to work with just about any client; whether they are a small start up or a well established corporation. We understand the needs and concerns of both – we’ve been there…

We have experience working in the Technology Industry, Finance Markets, Sports Promotion, Dental/Medical, Business to Business and Business to Consumer markets to name a few. With our vast experience we feel confident that we can provide a great service to just about any business.

Skill Set: We’ve got skills!

We have dabbled in just about every medium out there, both old and new. If we haven’t then we have a great talent pool that lets us customize the team for the job. Our skill set runs the gamut from: Print Collateral and Advertising, Brand Identity to Interactive Media, Trade Show Development, Packaging and POP, not to mention our strong Photography and Commercial Video background.

Whatever your need may be – we have the skills!

So Enough About Us, Tell Us About You.

Whether you are a small business or international corporation, we’ve got you covered


Whether you are a start up business in need of the “basics” or an established business to consumer type organization we can provide all of your marketing and advertising needs. As a small business ourselves we know that your marketing dollars are very important. The most common question we get asked is “What’s your hourly rate?” Well we price our work by the job not by the hour, in-turn this allows us to adjust the amount of time spent on a project to fit the small business budget.

On the other hand if you need the full team on board to make your campaign creative and effective then we can most certainly do that too! The point is that no matter what your budget, we can more than likely meet both your budget and your marketing desires.


We understand that you needed it yesterday!

We primarily work for corporations, both regional and international. We work both on our own, as well as, part of the corporate marketing team. We even go so far as to work one on one with individual product mangers, sales teams or whomever the project is directed towards.

We offer a quick turnaround on most projects and give precedence to our contract corporate clients. We’ll take on any job that your internal staff doesn’t have time for or just doesn’t want to do. From simple product specification sheets to full product line catalogs we can handle most anything you throw our way!



Need a featured ad to show off your latest do-dad? How about a full blown catalog? Maybe a sales kit or an annual report…We can do that.


Now where would any business be without their brand? Your brand is a direct reflection of you…How do you look?


OH! We love package design. Figuring out how to best display that super cool “thing” you’re selling…Well that’s our job.


POP, Trade shows, Corporate Showroom, Museum Exhibitions…Show us what you’ve got and we’ll show you how we help.


Nothing says a good time like motion pictures. Well we don’t do that but… We can help you with your next broadcast commercial, training video or documentary.

Clients Talk

Working with Bean Design was like watching my dreams manifest on paper. With just one fairly brief consultation, Bean Design was able to create a product that was beautiful, professional, and exactly in tune with our personality as a business.

“Partnering with Bean Design has proven to be a tremendous benefit to US Conec.  Their creative and artistic ability is impressive, but what separates them is the ability to merge functionality with visual appeal. The amount of positive customer feedback on our website has been overwhelming!”
