Bart Bacon’s dedication, aesthetic and ability to make each of these projects come to life beyond our own vision are the reasons we keep relying on Bacon Design and will for years to come.”
Floore’s Country Store

We have designed CD packaging for many artists and record labels as well, always working towards a comprehensive and unified concept that helps professionally brand the artist.
From elegantly designed display boxes to simple and self-contained boxes that fold into position on store shelves, artist album art to label designs and beverage caddies for breweries, Bacon Design has engineered and designed packaging for toys, watches, sunglasses, pet products, sports shots and much more.
Bacon Design has also developed Point of Purchase floor and counter displays made of wood, metal and glass used in the majority of convenience stores in the USA and abroad.

"Bacon Design is my ONE STOP SHOP for all my graphic design needs! From camp brochures to business cards to logos for jerseys, Bart Bacon of Bacon Design delivers it all creatively, cost effectively and expeditiously with GREAT integrity! Bacon Design is flat out THE BEST!!!!!!!”
Former NBA Star • ESPN Basketball Analyst
BACON DESIGN INC is owned and operated by it's founder, Bart Bacon. Bart graduated from Sam Houston State University in 1989 with a BFA in Fine Art/Graphic Design. Trained in the old school techniques of design and layout before anyone ever even imagined Photoshop or the internet, Bart's foundation is in conceptual art first, technology second, although subsequent intensive training, years of experience and ongoing continuing education have enabled Bacon Design to operate on the cutting edge of design technology as well.
In Denver, Colorado in the early 1990s, after custom painting snowboards on the side, Bart collaborated with Colorado Ski and Golf on their first OEM Snowboard - a relationship that lasted over a decade and established Bart and Bacon Design as one of the foremost designers in the snowboard industry, working over the years with Ride Snowboards, Never Summer Snowboards, Gart Sports, and a variety of snowboard companies and retailers all over the world. This era provided Bacon Design with their foundation in bold artwork, professional layouts for printed collateral and ads, and the development of eye-catching point of purchase displays.
By the late 90's, Bacon Design had spread into many other areas of industry, including the engineering and design of packaging used for toys and novelties sold all over the world. PUGS Sunglasses, for example, has sold tens of millions of pairs, and every tag, every display, every point of purchase promotional rack was created by Bacon Design and co-created with PUGS owner and CEO between 1997 - 2007, and PUGS continues to be a major partner with Bacon Design today. Work with that client has Bacon Design's work in literally nearly every convenience store in North America, including prominent artwork found today throughout the largest convenience store chain in the world.
Also in the late 90s, the addition of web design and technology became a major element of Bacon Design's workflow. From simple online brochures to complex e-commerce sites, Bacon Design has designed every kind of site for a huge variety of clientele, always utilizing the latest tools and technology to make sure the sites stay fresh and cutting edge.
In the early 2000s, Bacon Design found another niche - working with musicians. Being a music lover, Bart was a natural fit in the music business, and his friendship with country music star, Jack Ingram, began an exciting new area of design. Bacon Design has created websites, merchandise, CD packaging, posters and more for Willie Nelson, Robert Earl Keen, Jack Ingram, Todd Snider, Scott Miller, Terri Hendrix, Charlie Robison, Bobby Bare Jr., Chris Masterson, Adam Carroll, Nathan Hamilton, the McKay Brothers and more, as well as working with some of the most venerable and historic venues in the industry, such as the legendary Floores Country Store. Through the music connection, Bacon Design has also done some non-profit work for the Mack, Jack and McConaughey charity (Mack Brown, Jack Ingram and Matthew McConaughey).
From 2009 - 2020, Bacon Design relocated their headquarters to Austin to grow and expand into new markets and segments of industry while maintaining loyalty to the Colorado client base. While the move solidified Bacon Design's role in TX Music and helped us expand into many venue, restaurant and civic design opportunities, Colorado beckoned and our HQ shifted back to the Rocky Mountains in January 2021. Today, Bacon Design continues to work with many musicians, toy and novelty manufacturers, banks, private businesses, health care facilities, non-profit groups, artists and more. With one foot in Austin and one foot in Denver, we continue to grow and serve our clients in both regions as well as the rest of the USA. No company is too small, no job is too big. Bacon Design also serves several advertising agencies, handling the execution of their art direction and taking their ideas to completion in both Colorado and Texas.
Bacon Design exists because we have filled a niche: many companies want professional, high-quality work, but can't afford a big time agency. That's where we come in. Give us a try.
