“Pleased with the Quality and Creativity”

The Revival Focus Forum worked with IFB Designs last year on producing several high quality, revival themed graphics for our blog. We supplied the quotes and they created the graphics. Each month we were very pleased with the quality and creativity of the artwork that went with each quote. We can heartily recommend Ben and his group for these type needs!

James Hollandsworth | General manager, Revival Focus Ministries

“Creative, Dedicated, and Talented”

IFB Design is one of the best graphic design companies I have worked with in years! They are a team of creative, dedicated, and talented individuals. The team is always able to take my ideas and produce high quality projects.

The company has completed many projects for me. Their pricing is affordable and their quality of work is outstanding. They really care and ensure that I am always satisfied with each project.

Deborah Elum – Director of All That Productions

“First class, on time, reasonable pricing!”

I hired IFB Design to simply do one small design project for me, before I knew it I had hired IFB Design to work on so many different design projects that I had going on with my company, Financial Momentum. The reason that happened was because IFB Design is one of those companies that as another business owner you love working with, they are first class, on time, reasonable pricing, and willing to listen to what you want, and give some advice as to what they have seen work with past clients or past designs they has done for other companies.

So not only did IFB Design design what I needed when I needed, but they also gave me, for free, some great marketing and design advice. I still work with IFB Design when I have any design projects for my company. And from one business owner to the next I would highly recommend hiring IFB Design

Andrew Cordle- CEO Financial Momentum

“No-Nonsense Attention to Detail”

I am very pleased with the work Ben did rebuilding our website. He added a creative touch that was much needed and appreciated. His attention to detail and no-nonsense way of getting the job done is refreshing. Highly recommended, I plan to hire IFBDesign again in the future.

Will Hepworth – Assistant Pastor Bow Baptist Church

“Looking Forward to Our Next Design with IFBDesign”

We planted a new church in 2014. I really wanted to have our literature well done from the get-go. I did a little research and found IFB Design. They promptly custom designed and made all of our literature. I have distributed thousands of material designed by IFB and everyone asks me where I had them made. Other churches have seen our material and have contacted them as well to see what IFB might be able to do for them. I will be using them in the future and will continue to refer others to them as well! Looking forward to our next design.

Kevin Bell – Pastor of Bible Baptist Church West Union

“A pleasure to work with.”

I have had the privilege to work with IFB Design on my website since 2005. They have exhibited a servant’s heart toward their work and it has been a pleasure to work with him. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Joe Murray – Evangelist and Assistant Pastor – Fort Dodge, Iowa


IFBDesign’s worker are conscientious  and have a strong desire to please their clients. I believe that those who use his services will be pleased with the results.

Dan Sehested – Missionary – Baptist World Missions

“Even better than I imagined.”

IFB Design has done some work for Reformers Unanimous, as well as for me personally, and it has always been even better than I imagined. Their work is the greatest proof that they have a natural eye for design. Combine that with their understanding of and love for ministry and you have an excellent combination. Conservative churches often have the right position, but portray it in such inferior ways. IFB Design possesses the skill for being fresh, yet not so trendy that it looks out of place with our message. I encourage you to use them whenever possible.

Ben Burks – International Director of RU Recovery Ministries

“Knowledge, experience, affordability, and the right purpose.”

IFB Design was such a help to me as a pastor and our Church. When I became Pastor of Southside Baptist Church I knew it was important to make a name in our community. With society so driven by graphics, our church knew it would be important to find someone that could help us freshen up our website, and logo. I sought around within our church and found no one that was capable of taking on this task. With some previous work done by IFB Design, I knew that was who we needed to contact. Within two weeks we had the new look that we were looking for. IFB Design has the knowledge, experience, affordability, and the right purpose to help any church or ministry with any project that you may need help with.

Jeremy Amster- Pastor Southside Baptist Church

Trucking Website Design

PSD Design to WordPress Website. CWS contacted IFBDesign with a problem. They needed an application process that truckers on the road could access while mobile in order to apply to work for CWS hauling freight. After some initial research, we discovered that their current website was not mobile friendly and very much in need of an upgrade. In order to get the best online form system that was also mobile friendly we determined it would be best to redesign their website for WordPress and create a custom form system to meet their needs.

Church Branding Project

IFBDesign was hired to set the tone and created this new brand. We began by evaluating the church and its makeup. We came to the conclusion that North Love Baptist Church was a church made up of real people and that they had a church that was authentic to the Bible. And so we created the brand elevator statement of “Real People, Authentic Church”

Invitational Card for First Baptist Church of Spring Valley

Pastor Joemel contacted IFBDesign way back in 2012 with a desire to reach his community more effectively with a piece of quality design work. The main items he wanted to communicate was the contact information for the church and the gospel message, but he wanted this on a small easy to carry invite card. The card needed to feel valuable, and he felt some quality design work would help with that.

Our Design Process

At IFBDesign we believe that process is very important to being efficient and accurate in our work. Our mission is to create quality and excellent work. We understand that many of our clients are non-profits, and small businesses that are sometimes new to the Design Process. We want to help with the understanding of that process.

The Creative Brief

Our process begins with the Creative Brief. This is a process that helps us discover more about your project to be able to accurately project budget, and timeframes. It also helps us make sure we are asking the right questions for this project.

Data Gathering

Once the brief has been sent to us we begin a process of data gathering. After reviewing all of the information you send us plus some market research that we do ourselves we then return to you a proposal with a recommended solution for your design problem as well as the estimated cost.


Once the proposal has been approved and a standard design agreement has been signed it is time for creative execution. Everything else has led to this moment and now that we have properly defined the parameters our team can move quickly and hone in on innovative solutions. This is at the heart of what we do and often the favorite part of our jobs.

Approval and Launch

We have given you our best work and now it’s your turn to check that all the parameters and objectives have been met. Once approved we send the project to you in a usable medium. When this process is complete we try to review and learn from everything that was done on this project so we can apply it to the next project.
