Before any official government mandates were declared, we gave our team a choice to work from home. The government mandates were declared but didn't apply to us, and still, we continued to give our team that choice. With the states of Maryland and Virginia entering phase 1 of reopening, we are continuing to give the cbd-x team a choice to work from home.

Our Story

More than 25 years ago, Communicate By Design started as a company with a solitary graphic designer working in their basement. By 2006, we had doubled, and then it doubled again, and then took off exponentially. Today we have a posse of designers, web developers, social media specialists, writers, and strategists (it’s getting kind of crowded over here, in fact).

In 2013, we reflected on who we were, and we kept coming back to our exponential growth. And quickly decided to use that X factor as part of our name: Communicate By Design-x.

If there can be a formula for success in the DC Metro marketing business, we’ve nailed it. We started with great clients and great work, multiplied by opportunities and creativity. Some of the same clients that were here, in the beginning, are still around, and many others have joined them, bringing new expectations.

Our formula didn’t just meet our clients’ needs – it exceeded them. Time and time again, we used brains and strategy to deliver big, impressive client results.

Our story is over 25 years in the making, but upon reflection, we realized that the stuff that is great about Communicate By Design-x today was there right from the beginning.
