company history

How it all began...
Our company was established in 1983 in Redondo Beach, California, as S.U. Graphics, and legally became Mindset in 1987. As of July 1, 2001, the company is now known as Neotrope®.

Neotrope was founded by award-winning multimedia artist, author, photographer, and marketing guru Christopher Simmons to provide an affordable alternative to traditional high-priced advertising/design companies on the West Coast.

The company originally offered in-house 2-color offset printing, graphic design, commercial photography, plain-paper typesetting, copy-writing/editing, advertising and marketing services. Today, many of those services are still offered (except in-house printing), along with services which embrace the new communication avenues such as CD-ROM/DVD, digital audio and video, and the Internet.

founded 1983 Twenty years of practical and proven experience, including over seven years experience in Web-based services, has given Neotrope a decided advantage in providing the type of solutions most desired by small to medium companies wanting to "get the word out" and grow revenues.
