Our Philosophy

Contemporary, progressive, innovative and engaging are all words that describe the brand development, web development, ad campaigns, brochures, newsletters, magazines and packaging products produced by Allen Harris Design.

Our vision has always been to provide “big agency thinking” without “big agency overhead,” and to create work that “makes a difference” for our clients.

Allen Harris Design serves individuals; large, medium and small companies; and not-for-profit and charitable organizations with current, imaginative and results-producing designs and consultation.

As an A3 Creative Loft partner, we offer a wide range of services to clients – providing the benefit of consistency in message and brand.

“Our new materials have been very well received. We have gotten great feedback on them, as well as the website and logo. Thanks for helping us improve our image so dramatically!” Anne Barrins

President/CEO, Barrins & Associates

Experience. Creativity. Great Design.

Amy Allen, owner of Allen Harris Design, has more than two decades of diverse experience as an award-winning Art and Creative Director, and as a successful entrepreneur.

Early in her career, Allen served as Production Manager for the largest direct mail firm in the country, and later as Art/Creative Director for three leading Tampa Bay Area Ad Shops where she honed her skills working on local and national accounts, including Busch Gardens, Star Distribution Systems, St. Anthony¹s Wellness Center, Bausch and Lomb, Cadillac and McDonald’s restaurants.

After many rewarding years working for others, Allen set out on her own to offer clients original, results-driven advertising and creative design work that was cost-effective.  That dream came to life in 1989 when she formed Allen Harris Design.

Always eager to take on new challenges and grow as a designer, Allen keeps up-to-date on the latest trends, colors and design advances, as well as cutting-edge technology. In addition, Allen works with an extensive list of professionals in various specialty fields in order to offer clients the best services available in the area.
