We're small enough to take real pride in each and every job we do, yet agile enough to take on projects of all sizes. We don’t strive to merely be good. We don’t want to simply be great. We want to be greater than anyone you’ve ever worked with. And we want you to be greater too.

Our Process



First, we ask. We listen. We survey the landscape, deliberately seek inspiration, and gather data.



At the intersection of inspiration, innovation, and research, we drawup blueprints.



Joining our plans with your input, we refine our formula: isolate the essentials and amplify.



Whatever the medium or format, we always forge a structure that brings our work's caliber and integrity to light.



After careful review and testing, we give flight to your project and introduce it to the world.



Shake hands & celebrate a job well done.

Say “Hi” to the Team


Ari Kaplan


Ari is the co-founder and creative director of Griflan Design Inc. An early bloomer, Ari has been developing and designing websites since high school. He graduated from Rutgers University with a BA in Graphic Design in 2004.

Ari's design sensibilities and attention to detail verge on compulsive, though we prefer to think of him as a perfectionist. Whatever you call it, Ari won't rest until every pixel is in place.

Ari brings an easy-going and good-natured attitude to everything he does. Whether working in the wee hours on a project with the close-knit crew at Griflan or enjoying time in the great outdoors, Ari draws inspiration from his beautiful family and amazing friends.


Ron Griffel


Ron is the co-founder and creative director of Griflan Design Inc. He graduated from Temple University's Tyler School of Art with a BFA in Graphic Design in 2004.

Ron is a designer, illustrator, and all around good guy. He is known to some (most particularly to himself) as the "wild stallion" of the office. But if you take a closer look, you'll see that he actually has the calm, quiet eyes of a Chilean Chinchilla.

When Ron isn't poring over design concepts with the team at Griflan, he makes the most out of every minute with his wonderful wife and two children. Ron is also known to get down and dirty with a wrench and his second love…his car.


Kristin Byers


Kristin is a marketing coordinator and project manager at Griflan Design Inc. She has provided expert online marketing consultation to Mid-Size and Fortune 100 Companies for more than a decade.

Kristin engages her clients directly to understand their needs, refine their objectives and provide them with profitable marketing solutions that help them reach and exceed their goals. Kristin also works closely with clients to manage and coordinate expectations, adhere to project timelines and ensure that Griflan and its clients are always on the same page.

When Kristin isn't working to create greater branding and product visibility for Griflan's clients, she spends her time with her loving family and friends.


Justin Lerner


Justin is Griflan's utility-man for all things web development. He began his education in Graphic Design at the University of Delaware. Though Justin had a sharp eye for design, he quickly found that he had an even greater passion for programming his designs into usable experiences.

Justin believes there is beauty in the code behind any great design. This is why he delivers painstaking detail and formidable results to every project he takes on.

When Justin needs a break from technology, he'll head for the snowy mountains of Vermont. When the weather is warm, he'll take a tour of the city on his bike. When Justin is feeling creative, he'll grab his guitar or whip up a gourmet meal in the kitchen.
