Mankato State graduate Jeff Irish founded Concept & Design in 1979, in Nicollet, Minnesota after seeing the need for the area’s first full-service graphic design and advertising agency. Since its founding, Concept & Design has maintained its position as one of the area’s premier design studios.
Concept & Design was the first in the area to fully employ computerization in the preparation of printed materials, and has continually embraced new technology as a means to higher quality, faster turnaround and lower production cost. Concept & Design continues this tradition with attention to new and emerging technologies in the 3D rendering and product photography fields.
Jeff Irish retired in January 2015. At that time, Concept & Design formed a partnership between longtime employees Kris Kathmann, Jon Smith and Becky Wagner to take ownership of the firm.
