The Special Sauce

When you combine our vast and varied backgrounds with our quirky curiosity, the main ingredient in our "special sauce" is our perspective. We have a 360° viewpoint on most avenues of retail and design, from concept to in-store execution. We've worn many hats, have been agents of change at both small and large companies and recognized and awarded for our creativity and innovation. This combination gives us a unique perspective that leads to breakthroughs and disruption in the marketplace.

An illustration team that understands product. A product design team that understands packaging and merchandising. A graphic design team that understands the power of brand over commodity.

We view ourselves as a creative studio rather than a design studio, mainly because sometimes the design is secondary to the actual need. We pull together all our experience and abilities to provide you with the best solution possible. Here are just a few dishes you can pour some sauce over:

  • Creative Consulting
  • Graphic, Package, & Product/Surface Design (or Product Updates/Facelifts)
  • Style Guides, Illustration and Print + Pattern
  • Brainstorming & Ideation
  • Trend Reporting & Overviews
  • Brand Management, Launches & Reinventions
  • Merchandising Solutions
  • Product Copy (we like to romance the reader)
  • Online or On-site

What Makes the Sauce So Special?

Our beliefs, experience and approach are what make the sauce so suh-weet and zesty.

What We Believe

  • We believe in differentiation through design and experience.
  • We believe in the power of personality in product, brand and design.
  • We believe in looking for inspiration in unusual places to create something new.
  • We believe in thought partnerships vs. client/service provider relationships.
  • We also believe the word "client" is dull and lifeless, so we think of you as our business friend. And who doesn't go out of their way to help a friend?
  • We believe vegetarians and carnivores can co-exist in the same creative studio and work together to make "AMAZING" happen.
  • We believe growth occurs through honest and valuable feedback, so please drop us a line to let us know how we're doing and how we can improve.

Finding the right creative partner is key to achieving success on any given project, and it makes for great long-term relationships. If you think we can help spice up your dish, let us know.
