There is something incredibly powerful about transformations. This is why we are so intrigued by the concept of ‘before and after.’ We love seeing women made over—hair, makeup, and wardrobe done for them to help remind them of their beauty & potential. We get such satisfaction watching interior spaces be painted and furnished to improve the look and feel of a home, and even more so, in watching the homeowners delight in the difference it makes!
The same transforming affect can happen with a piece of artwork being hung on a wall, or putting a frame on a piece of artwork, our favorite photograph, or memorabilia. There is just something so exciting about the finished look. It feels whole…complete…and increasingly significant as compared to the ‘before.’

Jeff Westermyer, a fairly new client and good friend of Art Design Consultants came in to pick up a finished framed piece that he ordered during the Frame Sale Insanity. After our first introduction about a year ago, Jeff quickly became one of our greatest supporters…
“I can actually see ADC from my balcony, and I always thought it was such a cool space. I was invited to the Cincinnati Design Star event through Park Place Condos’ weekly email. The event was fabulous. It was a fun mix of people and great artwork.”

Jeff walked in and saw a wall featuring thousands of samples and mentioned he “had no idea ADC did framing!”
“I purchased a piece of art from an ADC auction & wondered if I could afford to have it framed there as well. I did a little shopping around and ADC turned out to have the best pricing—and on top of it all they customized the painting for me. They cut off the 90’s matting to make it a beautiful finished piece. I’ve had 5 pieces plus framed at ADC since, and the finished work is always impeccable. I love the entire Art Design crew.”
“I actually recently recommended ADC’s framing services to an artist neighbor of mine who ended up getting several pieces framed during The Frame Sale Insanity sale. She picked up her finished pieces last week, and called me so happy, to say ‘thank you for telling me about this place!’
For his most recent frame job, Jeff chose a 4” wide, traditional gold, ornate frame to create a fun juxtaposition with the whimsy of his artwork. “I found this piece for $35 in a second hand store. I thought it was so kitschy that it was cool. After seeing it finished with the frame it looks like a work of art!”
