Since 2007, Klocke Design has provided effective and engaging graphic design and illustration solutions to clients in Greater Cincinnati and Southwest Ohio.

In addition to right-brain creativity, Doug brings left-brain analysis and understanding. With a BS in Finance from the University of Dayton and an MBA from Xavier University, he spent five years in the banking industry. Doug earned his graphic design degree at The College of Mount St. Joseph.
(And while he’s too modest to tell you himself, he designed this spiffy website.)
Elke fell in love with graphic design and typography in grade school and has been involved in design ever since. Yet she believes listening is the most important creative skill she can give clients. Her diverse experience with corporate communications means clients benefit from a multi-disciplined yet balanced approach on projects, no matter the size. Elke really enjoys the collaborative creative process that comes when working with clients and extremely talented creative colleagues, but the biggest reward is the measured results of a successful campaign.
Elke’s love affair with Texas started while earning her Communications degree at Southern Methodist University.
