Opus Creative Studio, Inc. is a small graphic design agency that provides intuitively different, effective, and practical design solutions. We have extensive design experience in a multitude of areas within both print, packaging, and web design. We thrive on making the details of your project right, while giving you a good value and being easy to work with. That’s the way it should be.
Opus primarily serves the financial services industry, but has designed numerous projects for a variety of small and large businesses, and not-for-profit organizations. We also love to tackle those odd specialty projects you’ve always wanted to do.

Peter Brodeski - Creative Director / Designer
Pete founded Opus Creative Studio, Inc. in 2003 upon graduating from Eastern Illinois University. The following year he married his wife Jenny. They have five children together: Sophie, Amelia, Oliver, Molly, and Greta.
Yes, five children.
I am an active board member of the Rock River Valley Pantry, Northern Illinois' largest community food pantry, and serve on the fundraising and marketing committee. I am also a member of the Cosmopolitan Club, an international service group that fights diabetes, and a member / former board member of Rock River Multisport, a club for endurance-focused athletes of all skill levels.
Pete enjoyes camping with his family, and renovating his home, which includes a Western town, where his office is located, in the old hotel (not haunted).
As a two man design team, we have known each other for 13 years and have been designing together on a regular basis for the past seven. We understand each other’s design strengths and weaknesses and are able to quickly and easily work as a unified team, providing the client with the best possible creative outcome. We have a design niche within the finance industry, and after 10 years of designing within it, we’re good at what we do.

Effective visual communication is what we do and what we’re good at.
We listen to your ideas, make sense of your sketches, clean up your Word files, brainstorm, and compile it all to make something easy to understand, and visually appealing. A common sense approach with an intuitively different outcome.
We also partner with other specialized agencies from time to time to create a stronger team of industry professionals.
The close integration of our firm with these partners allows our clients to leverage
the very best industry capabilities and expertise on an “as needed" basis.

Jonathan Donaldson - Lead Designer
Jonathan has been doing freelance intermittently for Opus Creative Studio since 2005, after completing his graduate studies in art at Eastern Illinois University. He first met Pete as a sophomore at Eastern, while taking a printmaking class. The two became fast friends, quickly realizing how their creative processes complimented each other.
Jonathan now works primarily for Opus, helping wherever he is needed. When he's not doing design work, Jonathan is spending time on his small farm with his wife, Mandi, and their four children: Lukas, Annelise, Ava, and Scarlett. They recently purchased a 19th century schoolhouse, that will serve as dedicated school space for homeschooling. He's also very active in his church, playing bass and singing in the praise band, as well as leading a Bible study.
