Jean Peterson Design changes name to Postern

FREDERICK, Md. — After 22 years of business in downtown Frederick, Md., Jean Peterson Design officially changed its name to Postern effective May 1.

According to a news release from the company, the firm started as a traditional graphic design agency, Postern has expanded to encompass a full-service approach to marketing and advertising. Now, clients looking for an all-inclusive marketing strategy can get everything — media planning, copywriting, public relations, social media management, print and website design — under one roof.

The new name and diversified service offerings further signal the company’s evolution from a graphic design firm to a full-service agency and comes after the recent acquisition of the business by Emily Dorr, a 21-year employee of the company.
