Third Generation Design was a natural outgrowth of my family’s history and experiences in the graphic arts profession. Our commitment to our clients is based on a strong family tradition in the visual arts and recognition for cost effective products. My grandfather, Victor Giroux, a sign artist who began his Burlington business in 1921, enhanced his hand-lettering skills with the fabrication of neon and electric signs in the 1930’s. My father, Robert Giroux, expanded his own sign business to include commercial screen-printing in the 1950’s. Later in the 1980’s, it was the computer and the accessibility to CAD devices that helped me to produce vinyl graphics. This revolutionized the process of hand-lettered signs and graphic design.
From 2005 - 2010, my experience as a studio and public outreach coordinator for one of Vermont’s largest public access TV stations enabled me to mix my graphic skills with video. Soon my vision became a reality - the production of video products as a way of helping my customers have more engaging web sites.
At Third Generation Design, we are committed to helping our customers with graphic and video solutions that support their individual needs and budgets. We partner with successful small businesses and forward-thinking non-profit organizations located throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. Most of our experience has been in the development of video productions for clients in the building, flooring, recreational, and artistic sectors.
