Welcome to Flying Button Design

Flying Button Design is owned and operated by Richard Gassen. Located in Middleton, WI, I specialize in creative design and marketing for print and web, photography services, and consulting/tutoring services.

I am a graphic artist with a techy side. Having worked in both design and prepress environments for over 20 years, I have a left brain / right brain ability to process information. In my many experiences, I have seen what works and what doesn't in design.

I have vast experience in understanding clients’ needs and creating effective campaigns that get results. Along with an eye for photography and skill in color correction, I have knowledge and understanding of large format output & booth displays, variable data printing & list preparation for VDP projects, and I am an expert in US Postal regulations. I am ready to help you spread your message!

Contact me directly at flyingbutton[at]tds[dot]net to discuss your project needs.

Clients Include:

Hann’s Christmas Farm, Zimbrick Inc, Westside Community Market, National Council on Crime and Delinquency, Second Harvest Food Bank, The Froth House, and Muddy Moose Espresso.

Exceeded My Expectations

"Working with Rich is very easy. He always keeps in mind all of the customer's ideas, as well as adding some great ones of his own. He exceeded my expectations on the projects that he did for me."

~ Greg Hann, Owner of Hann's
Christmas Farm

Great Results, High Integrity, Creative

“Rich Gassen ROCKS! I have had the good fortune to work with Rich. A talented designer, Rich takes my ideas for a project and expands upon them. In a time crunch, Rich has even written copy for me. Rich provides such an extremely high level of service that at Zimbrick, we think of Rich as a part of our team. Rich is a true business partner and an outstanding person.”

~ Monica Winkler, Senior Marketing Manager at Zimbrick Inc.

A Pleasure to Work With

“Rich is that rare person who has strong right- AND left-brain talents (very unique in the advertising and printing worlds). He is a talented graphic designer plus an accomplished prepress specialist. That means he can create any type of printed piece and prepare it for printing without any problems during the process. He's also very helpful in explaining the technical details associated with the prepress world. With his wonderful sense of humor and laid-back personality, it's a pleasure working with Rich.”

~ Anne Johnson, Former Sales Rep at SprintPrint, Madison, WI
