our Design Firm
G I N G E R M A R K S was born in Lansing, Michigan and moved to Florida when she was in her early twenties. She worked in the medical field and owned a surgical clinic for over twenty years. Ginger's love of music and art has always been at the forefront of her endeavors as she dabbled in many crafts while being both a soloist and choir director at her local church. Some of the crafts she has done include macramé, quilling, cross-stitch, quilting, and crochet just to name a few. It was during this time in her career that she honed her entrepreneurial skills and began dabbling in graphic design.
In 1998 Ginger founded GraphInc which eventually evolved into DocUmeant, and the DocUmeant family of companies was born. While offering writing services such as editing and dictation, as well as marketing copy writing, Ginger found her focus being shifted more and more towards her true love, art, and specifically the art form of graphic design. Thus, she decided to separate the two companies into DocUmeant.net for writing and DocUmeantDesigns.com which would specialize in graphic and digital design.
In August of 2006 she accomplished her goal of becoming a published author with the printing of her first book, Presentational Skills for the Next Generation. When the book finally arrived and she was holding it in her hands it was a dream come true for her. However, that excitement was short-lived when, as she opened her book, the cover cracked. It was then that she vowed to help others like her not to suffer that same fate and DocUmeant Publishing was born.
Now sixteen years later, Mrs. Marks has authored several books and articles. She is now in her ninth year of publishing the Weird & Wacky Holiday Marketing Guide Your business marketing calendar of ideas which has been awarded the honor of becoming the #1 marketing book on Amazon and named in Dan Poynter's Global eBook Awards under the category, Non-Fiction - Advertising/Marketing/Sales.
It was also a great honor for Ginger, in 2012 and again in 2016, to see her publishing company, DocUmeant Publishing, chosen by the people as the 2012 New York US Commerce Association winner in the Publishing Consultants & Services category and in 2016 by The New York Award Program. Further enhancing her joy was that she herself was named to the Covington's Who's Who that same year and as Executive of the Year the following year.
During these last fifteen years the DocUmeant family of companies has assisted business owners and authors from all over the globe in accompishing their goals. The tagline of the company is 'We Make YOU Look GOOD!' and that is exactly what they do.
In 2015 and again in 2016 DocUmeant Designs was honored with the Design Firm Award in Clearwater, Florida—our local area. Each year, in and around the Clearwater area, the Clearwater Award Program chooses only the best local businesses. This second in a row winning designation also places DocUmeant Designs in the Business Hall of Fame! They focus on companies that have demonstrated their ability to use various marketing methods to grow their business in spite of difficult economic times. The companies chosen exemplify the best of small business; often leading through customer service and community involvement.
