BRAND SPECIALIST Chanin Milnazik opened BROWNDOGDESIGN in 2008 after working for advertising agencies in Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Philadelphia.
Chanin is a community leader. Her accomplishments represent the power of one person to help many. As the founder of The Women’s Business Forum of Bucks County, First Friday Doylestown, and the ‘Doylestown BluBall’ (a charity event), her influence and charitable contributions in time & expertise, have produced far-reaching, positive effects. She has also brought her years of experience to a new generation of marketing students while teaching a class in Branding and Marketing at Delaware Valley University.
A passionate advocate for like-minded entrepreneurs, she has dedicated her life to helping businesses put their best foot forward at the initial stages of their development, ensuring early success and growth.
In 2016, Chanin assembled a talented group of colleagues under one roof – forging a powerful collaborative team of creative professionals. With a fresh "anti-agency" business model - THE FOUNDRY, located in Doylestown Pa, joins six individual businesses who together, bring a unique blend of talent, skill and agile adeptness to their clients. Developing strong brands in synergy with strategic marketing plans and tactics has helped the Foundry distinguish itself from other cookie-cutter, me-too agencies.

We provide everything you need to get your BRAND out there and recognized – and in the process, generate more business for your company.
Trade Show Support
Standing out at a crowded trade show is always a challenge, but one that can reap huge benefits in brand exposure. Lean on us for unique and creative ideas that can also be surprisingly cost effective. Thinking out-of-the-box is a daily activity in the BROWNDOGDESIGN office.
We’ve designed quite a few, and we work with programmers tailored to fit your needs and your budget. We absolutely won’t try to fit you into a template; each site is designed specifically to fit the needs of your business and reflect and build your BRAND.
Owner and “Creative Alpha” Chanin Milnazik has been helping businesses through strategic branding and graphic design for over 20 years. Possessing an uncanny ability to listen and understand clients’ needs, she executes projects with unbridled passion and creativity.
If you are considering starting a business, Chanin offers a unique birds eye view perspective.
Many entrepreneurs go into business because they have a skill-set they think others will pay for, and while that is the basis for a good company, the idea that you need to get out there and sell yourself is often a surprise. Thinking about your brand messaging from the beginning and targeting it to your customer can alleviate some early stresses, and set you up for business success.
HOW WE WORK
The first step is getting to know each other and finding out if we are a good fit. Tell us about your business goals and your challenges! We work with people we like, and often clients turn into friends. If we're not the right fit, we’ll gladly help you find other resources that can help you.
Once we have an idea of what you need, whether it's a marketing strategy, full brand development or simply refreshing an existing brand - we will give you an easy-to-digest estimate and time frame.
Upon your approval, and a deposit, we'll get our creativity flowing!
This is the part we love – the fresh, outside-the-box, conceptual thinking. For brand/logo development, we typically execute 5-8 sketches (budget permitting). For projects such as printed collateral or web design, we'll get going and present our ideas to you at the earliest stages. This ensures that the project stays on target and you are fully-engaged in the process to move the needle forward.
Projects usually go through 2-3 rounds of edits. We like to get these from you in writing so there's no confusion. Once we have your final approval, we're off to press (or the web)! We can handle all the printing for you cost-effectively. This also ensures the highest quality final product.
BrownDogDesign is located at "THE FOUNDRY" - 121 west Court Street Doylestown PA. Our laptop bar is always open for colleagues who wish to check e-mail or work in a creative atmosphere. The coffee is "usually" brewing!

Business Building tips from the BrownDog
Why scotch tape should be banned from windows
As a graphic designer who specializes in helping businesses build brands, I notice the good and bad in other businesses. Everything you do when you own a business makes a direct impression on the business itself. This applies to the signs, the flyers you allow others to hang, and obviously the logo. I have seen handwritten flyers scotch-taped to storefront windows that look like a kindergarten art project! What the business owners don’t understand is that signage can either elevate your professionalism or kill sales. It is easy for things to go unnoticed and fly under the radar, but it’s these small details that will take your business from “start-up” to a professional business.
You may have heard the phrase “there is no such thing as bad publicity”. This could not be further from the truth. Every little piece of signage in your establishment adds to your brand image, so it should be consistent with your brand. No one wants their customers to think of their brand as sloppy and unprofessional. Although you might have a great product, a low-quality sign or flyer will lead customers to believe you run a low-quality business. If you have respect for your company, as a business owner you need to be on top of your brand image. Start by throwing out your scotch tape!
