The Wright Flyer Patent Design

It starts with an impossible idea, an insightful observation, a surprising business opportunity.

Then you have questions: How do we craft a brand strategy to guide our customer experience? Do our digital and print communications effectively express our vision and connect with our clients? How do we reach people on mobile devices? How much will it cost to execute our idea? How long will it take?

That’s where we begin. We’ll study the problem, assess the opportunities, understand your organization and apply our expertise to your unique challenge. We’ll work together to clarify your project vision, scope and requirements. We’ll find a way to make design relevant and effective for you.

Wright Brothers

“What one man can do himself directly is but little. If, however, he can stir up ten others to take up the task he has accomplished much.”
– Wilbur Wright, Aviation Pioneer

Get Your Idea Off the Ground


Winning Strategy

Monopoly Patent Design

Crafting effective brand communications shouldn’t be left to the roll of a dice. It requires a disciplined, proven strategy to put your ideas several moves ahead of your opponents and win the game.

We take the time to understand who you are and where you’re going. We clarify your brand vision and define your communications strategy. We ask a lot of questions. We listen. We wrestle with the why and what of your project before the how, how much and how long. We’ll craft a brand strategy that hits the jackpot.

Like Monopoly’s player tokens, every client and project is unique. So while we use a tested, disciplined methodology to create game changing communications, we tailor our design process to perfectly fit your project goals, audience, market, budget and schedule.

focused creativity

Lego Patent Design

Like the iconic LEGO® brick, the design possibilities for any given project are endless. Together we’ll explore creative options you’ve never dreamed of, then evaluate those options based on your brand goals — not subjective or trendy styles. We’ll take calculated and unexpected creative risks to find the perfect fit to visually articulate your brand. And we’ll have fun doing it. But don’t take our word for it — take a look at our portfolio and judge for yourself.

Sound Support

Fender Telecaster Patent Design

When Leo Fender created the world’s first commercial solid body electric guitar in 1950, no one realized his guitar would revolutionize popular music across multiple genres and still be in continuous production almost 65 years later.1

That’s why we see not only innovative design as a key instrument in your brand performance, but also the services necessary to sustain your brand as your business grows and matures.
