DarkHorse Design is a graphic design company that first opened in the fall of 2014 at 229 South Main Street in Fort Atkinson. They specialize in logo design, branding, marketing and promotional materials. Their services include banners of all types and sizes, signs, vehicle lettering, business cards, postcards, brochures and model building/3D creation. They can put your design on practically anything! Since their opening, many acquaintances and partnerships have been formed and for that they are very grateful.

It is through these relationships that the owners Julius and Corinna Bindrim got to know Fort Atkinson better. Through the many people they have met, a general consensus was formed; Fort Atkinson is rich with musicians! Musicians who are seeking a local venue to share experiences, explore new equipment and simply buy a set of strings for their guitar. Learning of this local need, Julius and Corinna decided to expand upon their services to include music to the mix of their offerings. Thus, the revision to their logo and DarkHorse Design & Music was born!

DarkHorse has been involved with the music industry for many years, playing and recording in a string of bands from Milwaukee to Chicago, at many festivals, weddings, company parties and with the family around a campfire. This coupled with many years of music store management, the couple has the knowledge necessary to assist with retail sales. They have designed items for several well-known companies including Fender and Dean Guitars (DBZ and Dean Zelinski Private Label Guitars) and Goldbug exclusive boutique guitars.

DarkHorse offers instrument repair and set-up services on guitars, basses, mandolins, banjos, and ukuleles’. They are expanding their line with amps, keyboards, accessories, violins, live sound reinforcement, recording and percussion.

If there’s an instrument you are looking for or would like additional information about it, they’re here to help. DarkHorse provides guitar rentals at very reasonable rates to students of any age. They take trade-ins and consignment items. Need to layaway to afford that extra special item? They do that. If you’ve got a guitar that needs new strings, they’re able to do that too.
