About Hazard Creative / Design

Hazard Creative is primarily an Information Design firm located near Burlington, Vermont. Hazard has earned a reputation for creating strong, high quality solutions by strictly adhering to best practices and industry standards. Because of this, there has been strong demand for Hazard to expand its service offering to graphic design and website development beyond the unique area of Information Design. These services are now available.

Websites are coded to the latest professional standards, using progressive enhancement techniques. Search engine optimized code is included, as is compliance with Section 508 Accessibility guidelines. Highest quality craftsmanship in print and identity design goes without saying. We understand the tools and the industry, and we know how to do the job right. At Hazard, we also bring quality to the process. Critical thinking about the project takes our work up from the level of adding decoration to making solid communications happen.

Hazard’s focus on information design allows it a fresh perspective on traditional design challenges. We have a passion for understanding how people interpret information. Unlike traditional firms, we are constantly aware of new developments in visual psychology, visual cognition, communication, and comprehension. Hazard owner Michael Niggel holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Rochester Institute of Technology, which has been recognized as one of the top programs for graphic design in the United States.

In order to keep its focused expertise without losing connection to other aspects of a project, Hazard has formed partnerships with talented teams in closely related fields. Hazard works closely with these partners, sharing information and strategy; working together as one entity instead of simply handing off pieces and recombining them later. Hazard selects only partners also highly commited to excellence.
