NVS Design – Chatting with Chad (Brittian)

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Our focus today is on NVS Design, Inc. Owned by Chad Brittian, it is a boutique design agency offering a wide range of services to its clients.

Chad, when did you start your company and why?

I started it in January 2010. I felt that there wasn’t a company in Indianapolis that offered new, innovative, and contemporary graphic design. Florida and California are often seen as the leaders in the creative department and I wanted to break the barrier and show that there are just as talented individuals/companies in the Midwest.

In a nutshell what does NVS Design provide?

At NVS Design we provide everything from something as simple as a logo to something as complex as a full vehicle graphic wrap.

Services offered:
Logo Design
Website Design and Hosting
Brochure Design
Business Cards
Complete Vehicle and wall graphics
Marketing/Advertising services

Were you always destined to own a design company?

I knew from the time I could hold a pencil that I liked to draw. Throughout my adolescence I took every opportunity I could that involved designing. As I approached my final years of high school I started to ponder, how I would be able to utilize my talent towards a career I could be proud of. By my junior year of high school, after I saw an ad in Hot Rod Magazine for the Chevrolet Camaro I knew I was hooked. It was amazing to see the creativity behind the ad and see something on paper really come to life. I wanted to be able to share my ideas with companies that could profit from my creativity, and utilize my ability to design and draw. I researched more about the possibilities available and decided that Advertising and Graphic Design to be right up my alley.

Tell us about the start-up of your company.

I remember when I first decided to start out on my new venture how scared and unsure I was. I also had quite a few people think I was a little crazy to start a new business in an economy on a downward spiral, but I wasn’t about to let that stop me. For the first year I worked out of my home, obtaining clients anyway I could. The name of my company helped in getting my work noticed, a simple play on words — NVS Design playing off of the word envious. At first I wasn’t sure if the name would work because so may people asked me what the letters N V S stood for without realizing the double entendre. Once I explained the phrasing it really stayed with these potential clients. I was even being told later that the reason some of these potential leads went with my company was because they remembered the name and wanted their business to be envied because of their design.

I started designing for next to nothing just to get my ideas out into the world. As my work began to expand I started to meet some of the more influential people of Indianapolis with the connections that I needed to ensure my business’ success. After several events with Ovar’ Coming Together which is the Ovarian Cancer Society of Indiana I was able to connect to Down Syndrome Indiana which gave me the opportunity to be a part of one of the Indianapolis 500 events.

With exposure for my design and additional opportunities coming my way I knew it was time to expand. As I worked I began to learn a lot about my field, and what it was like to care so much about what I was doing. This was my baby and it embodied what I stood for and what I had worked so hard to achieve. After joining several networking groups in the Indianapolis area, and going to several events so that I could begin to get my company recognized I finally really began to increase my volume and make this passion turn into a true career.

With a client base that spans from California to Florida I feel we have really begun to take off. With new services such as vehicle graphics and 3D video animation added to our wide array of services I feel we are headed in the right direction of being a one stop shop for any business looking to expand their business’ marketing and strengthen their brand identity into something they can truly be proud of.
