About Syncopated Design
Syncopated Design is a company founded in Seattle in 2010 by David Aziz Trick. We specialize in working with clients to provide creative solutions to their design needs.
The name comes from the musical technique called Syncopation where, by shifting the normal accent (usually by stressing normally unaccented beats), a rhythm is created which is complex and unusual, but harmonious.
We try to do the same thing with design, using different perspectives to look for the unique qualities, and then putting them into a unified and unexpected graphic solution.
Our services include:
- All Printed Media (books, pamphlets, posters, signs, etc.)
- Web Development
- Logos and Branding
We are willing to try any other design projects! For example, we have done landscape designs.

I specialize in animation, posters, books, journals, handouts, signs, image manipulation, logo design, web design, and design in general.
I also tutor and give some instruction in basic Adobe CS Creative Suite Software program techniques.
Questions and Answers
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
I always make sure the client is happy with the work I do, and will do maintenance and fixes as time progresses.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
Tell us all the boundaries in a given project, give us the challenges you have faced, have all the images ready and waiting, and edit your text before you give it to us. These few things will expedite the project immensely and keep us from having to do many corrections.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
The customer should ask about experience, about work for other clients, and about design aesthetics. But the most important part of any designer is the work they do. Always look through the portfolio and talk with the designer. Their work should show competence, maturity, and diversity.
What is important to know about your profession?
Good design takes time, knowledge, and a dedication to both the aesthetics and the function. It can take a lot of time (and many versions) to make sure that the piece is both aesthetically beautiful and functionally applicable. If you rush the process unduly or go to an inexperienced or unskilled designer, you won't get the quality which you deserve.Many of us are used to working fast, but you have to know what you are doing before you can speed up the process.
