Who We Are

Design DLA, affectionately known as DLA, is a privately-held company with over 28 years of business writing and web design experience. We are an award-winning communication company headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. But our borders don't stop in Oklahoma. Our customers have been located throughout the United States—spanning from New York to Texas and beyond.

We are committed to delivering high-impact, results-driven communications for your business. Whether it's a product manual, policy guide or interactive web site, we offer creative and proven solutions that will communicate your message clearly and effectively.

So why partner with DLA?

  • We save you time by developing professional publications that communicate your message clearly, accurately and effectively.

  • We thrive on quick turn-around times. Well, maybe thrive is a little strong. The point is we can complete your project according to your schedule, not when it's convenient for our schedules.

  • We don’t hold YOUR artwork and documents hostage. At the completion of every job, we provide you all the source documents including original artwork.

  • We are good and we can prove it. You will receive a sample of what the end-product will look like before we begin the job. We also provide a detailed project plan with key deliverables and due dates.

  • Our goal is to please you. If you're not happy, we are not happy. After all, word of mouth is a powerful marketing strategy and we only want the best said about our professional work.

  • You won't find a company that is easier to work with—our motto is "no problem." Our hassle-free style of working is to your advantage. If you need a small change, we just do it (without requiring a 20 page addendum to your contract).

  • We provide a highly-qualified project team to meet the demands of your job, whether you need skilled writers, illustrators, web designers or programmers.

  • We use industry-leading software and top-of-the-line computer equipment designed to complete your jobs rapidly and economically.
