"Jeff is one of the most creative people I know. As a business owner, I know how important it is to have someone on my side who can assist me with my marketing and graphic design needs and create a distinctive place for me in
the marketplace. In addition to creative ability, I need someone who is unafraid to take a unique approach while, at the same time, representing my business with fervor and integrity. Jeff and Noble Design are those kinds of
assets to a small business owner. You'll be doing your business or
organization a favor by having Noble Design on your side."

Advantage Advertising

1988 was an incredible year. Desk top publishing was becoming all the rage, and two collegians from Ouachita Baptist University decided to open a business in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. They were both juniors and had had untold hours of experience on Mac Plus computers in the yearbook office.

With nothing more than a rudimentary business plan, they approached Elk Horn Bank, and were rewarded with a small business loan. With 3 Mac Plus SE's, a laser printer, and a scanner, they opened shop in downtown Arkadelphia, seeking to provide "quality graphic design and marketing" for small businesses that couldn't afford big ad agency prices.

Mitch Bettis and myself ran AdVantage Advertising for almost 3 years before I left for Fort Worth, TX to go to seminary. Mitch and a new partner continued to serve the needs of small businesses for another year or so before Mitch left for Oklahoma to get his master's and later his doctorate. Mitch is currently the owner/publisher of the Rio Blanco Times in Meeker, CO.

Between 1988-1991, we were able to serve dozens of businesses. At that time, desk top publishing was still something that "specialists" did. Little did anyone realize at the time how it would transition into something that every soccer mom and junior high student would become adept at.

Today, just about anyone can do "graphic design" with a little know-how. However, the niche that businesses like Noble Design and others fill is providing expertise and help when companies are too busy to slow down and do it themselves.
