About Us

21xdesign was formed by designers Patricia McElroy and Dermot Mac Cormack. 21xdesign is a visual communications design studio with a special interest in publication design.

Working from a foundation of design knowledge and practice, our business has been built on a passion for our work which translates into long-term relationships with our clients. We believe that listening is critical, process is key, collaboration is vital, and that design is a valuable contribution to the world of business, art, and culture.

Our Work

Our clients say, they like how we think. They’ve said they like how we work with them and make their jobs easier. We can tell you what we think we’re good at – but it’s very satisfying when our clients are pleased enough to tell us. And when we’re told that our work has been well received and has done its job well – its a good day!

We simplify complex information to tell stories in clear and thoughtful designs that engage people in meaningful ways. In a nutshell, we love design; it’s what we do. 

Dermot Mac Cormack

Creative Director & Designer

He’s full of it! Information that is, on many a topic. He’s an avid reader, and pretty much devours books. We do have trouble figuring out how he has the time and there are theories about where he does his reading. His experience in design is deep and his passion for design, technology, writing, music and life makes him the studio brain. Oh, and did I mention he is a professor in Graphic & Interactive Design at Tyler School of Art, Temple University, where he is also the chair of the department.

PatRICIA Mcelroy

Creative Director & Designer

After you talk to Patricia about design, art, photography, and 21xdesign, you understand why she’s been invested in her company for so long. She’s excited about design and alongside the studio’s clients, she has a list of projects she would like the studio to create on a variety of topics. Photography is always somewhere on her mind and her camera is never far. And FYI… she’s a closet chocoholic so hide your good chocolate when she’s around ….

Partnership

Our designers and technicians are never satisfied with “ok.” They are self-driven to pay attention to every detail and we only work with the best. This is a versatile studio where we work in many different mediums and technologies to develop marketing materials that build brands. This means of course that we don’t do it all ourselves. We partner with people from many areas of expertise and collaborate with creatives and developers to get great results for our clients.

Caterns

These two are independent workers, are aloof to criticism, but needy at times, especially when they demand an ear-rub. They’re quick learners and instinctively know when you’re going to step away from the seat you have just warmed up. They have a hard time learning that you’re seat is not their seat and that they cannot take afternoon naps right on top of your desk! We’re really not sure how they can be recommended to anyone so we might just have to keep them!
