Principals Mark Budwig and Nick Scalzo started S.MARK Graphics on June 15, 1984 in Chicago, Illinois. The company specialized in graphic design services. After extreme growth and relocation of its offices twice, the firm relocated to South Florida in 2001. Its services were expanded then to include web site design and production as well as email marketing. Today, the principals are involved in every project S.MARK takes on.
“Mark has earned a great reputation in the South Florida business community as one of the top graphic design and marketing shops. He is very reliable and a real pleasure to know and work with. His giving back to the community is virtually unmatched. He is a firm believer in give to get. He sure gives a lot of himself. I highly recommend Mark.”

“I have known Mark for years since the time we worked together on the American Marketing Association, South Florida board and through many organizations since. Mark's company has created a web site for a design client. He and his team are professional, incredibly creative and talented, and they take direction well. In addition, they are meticulous about following up, and just a pure pleasure to work with. I can highly recommend Mark's company if you’re looking to have a talented design team that’s resourceful, trustworthy, patient and who cares about doing your project right.”

“I give S.MARK Graphics my highest recommendation. S.MARK Graphics took our idea of forming an accounting firm and provided the name, the logo, the tag line, support materials and the web site. We were up and running within 45 days. They made the journey easy and painless. I have had the privilege of associating with Mark Budwig and Nick Scalzo going on nine years. I have found others to share my high regard for their work. In addition to on-time, a creative result for a good value, Mark and Nick are personable and demonstrate a high degree of expertise in their field.”
