Creative story tellers elevating your business through compelling design

who we are

About Us

We were all born and raised in very different areas – Grand Rapids, Cleveland and Maryland. Each city formed our inner being and shaped who we are , what we enjoy and what we believe in.

We left home, moved around and finally settled here. Now all together, we are working closely with very different clients, all whom require special attention and care. Each industry we work with has its unique people, aesthetics and elements. Our backgrounds and life choices have taught us to appreciate the amazing differences, which translates our design studio into a plethora of design and communication ideas specific to each client. We enjoy and welcome a challenge. Bring it on.

How We Do Things

Our Process

01 Definition

Everyone must be on the same page. Hopes, dreams and expectations.

02 Discovery

Once your dreams are laid out we will create your path of direction. You can follow us every step of the way.

03 Creation

The design process is always a good time. Sketches, initial designs, proofs and revisions - until it's perfect.

04 Implement

All the hard work begins to come to life. Our designs are now in place and your website is live, your marketing materials are printed, and you can now move on and take over the world.

Where we get things done

Our Studio

Located just outside of downtown Grand Rapids, MI, we have set up shop in a space full of local and international history.
