About BGP

“...Max and I began by just talking. What did Umami mean?... What was my vision with my business? I wasn't sure what I needed... He got to know me. Now, whenever anyone sees my logo or materials designed by BGP, doors are open for me to invite them in for a UMAMI experience. Business is good and people know when they see my logo to expect delicious quality treats.”

Bohemian Griot (pronounced ‘gree-oh‘) is a small, Virginia-based Creative Boutique that specializes in Graphic Design, Branding and Custom Publishing. Founded in 2001, BGP’s mission is to Tell Your Story — in any medium, whether it’s in print, on the web, or producing mixed media content.

Sometimes that story is meant to sell your name. Your mission. Your products and services. And sometimes your story belongs in a brochure, on a postcard, in a short promo video — or even in the pages of a book.
