About Galena Center for Design

Do you think visual clutter is a problem in the commercial environment? Signs, and architectural lettering surround us every waking moment. Shouldn't we be concerned with their quality and characteristics?

GCD Founder Peter Fraterdeus offers initial design consultation and review for not-for-profits and other organizations. The coherence of typographic and design elements creates an identity distinct from the language and words presented. Good design choices can make a start-up organization seem like a sure bet, whereas poor design can make it look amateurish and doomed to failure.

Semiotx Mission

We help you develop and manage your message through design planning and strategic branding on the web and in social media.

Stryder Thompkins

Principal, CTSG:
"Peter's work on our project was thorough and detail oriented, but he always kept the big picture in mind -- it is all about a successful user experience. He was passionate about the purpose of the project and steered the technical aspects expertly. I hope we can work on another project together some day!"
