Announcement    About OrangeCouch

My wife and I had always dreamed of having a small design house where we could turn our passion for creativity into a career. This dream materialized in 2001 when we opened a graphic design storefront in Vista, CA. In 2005 our first daughter was born and by 2007 we decided to sell our home and business to move from California to New England to live closer to my wife's family.

After years of working for companies and watching OrangeCouch close its doors from across the country, I decided to bring it back to life with a new twist– I've eliminated costly overhead, like storefront rent, and am passing the savings on to my clients with affordable printing and custom design. Some of my happiest and most rewarding career moments happened while running this company and I'm looking forward to getting back to doing what I love.

I am often asked where the name OrangeCouch came from and the story isn't that exciting. My wife and I were brainstorming names and the phrase "creative comfort" became a slogan for us. So, using those words symbolically, we came up with "orange" to represent creative and "couch" to represent comfort. Orange is also my favorite color. In California we had a fantastic orange couch in the lobby. It had a modern vibe to it and was a perfect icon for what became OrangeCouch. I don't have an orange couch anymore but one day will and I imagine it will look like the couch pictured on my website.

With all the advances in technology, OrangeCouch now represents my newest dream of being able to design and offer inexpensive printing from anywhere, even while on vacation.

I also design and print marketing materials, stationery, signs and banners and promotional items. Contact me for pricing on any project you need help with, ben [!at] benjaminbclark.com.

About the Designer, Benjamin Clark

I'm a New England based Art Director working in the graphic design industry professionally since 1999. Originally from southern California, I currently live in Connecticut with my wife of 18 years and our three amazing children. I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a B.F.A. in Computer Art.

I created this website because it is a perfect culmination of my love for designing brands and advertising for small companies, my ability to negotiate inexpensive printing for resell and my desire to spend more time with my family here in New England and in California. I am a bit of a workaholic but at the same time I love spending time with my family. My hope is that this site will allow me a little more freedom and the ability to do both.
