A Book of Us

The story of us!

Our story began in 1979...

with award-winning graphic design and marketing. We specialized in branding and identity mostly for restaurants, residential real estate and retail centers. We've since created marketing & advertising tools for large and small companies of all kinds. 

In 2005 CA Magazine (Communication Arts) named DL&A as one of a few regional firms that put Dallas/Fort Worth on the international map as a trend-setting design and advertising center. 

Our Team

Some of us design. Some of us design and write copy. Some of us design and illustrate. Some of us design and program websites. And some of us design and illustrate and write copy, and plan marketing strategies, program, and whatever else it takes to do the best creative work possible.
