About Us

We’re not just creative partners. Sometimes we think we share a brain.
In a good, we-can-see-360° kind of way.


When we take on a client, we’re all in.

Original, brilliant and utterly impactful, when you put your brand in our hands, you can be sure of results, because we are invested in making things happen.


Our process is every bit as inquisitive, aesthetic and just-a-bit-OCD as our brains, so you’ll get an unfiltered perspective on the state of your brand, then highly filtered creative that responds to your audience, competition and outlook.


We thrive on bringing something new to the table -and we don’t leave until you have a creative path forward on your own and everything has been perfected and delivered.


Richard draws on more than two decades of creative and brand strategy development in guiding clients from concept through implementation. Williams-Sonoma, The Body Shop, Vosges Haut-Chocolat, and Bed Bath & Beyond to name a few. What makes his product and brand storytelling so effective is a singular combination of strengths: a first-hand understanding of the corporate world, a depth of experience in creating physical environments (because digital is only half the story), and a somewhat inspired ability to translate data into visual identity that consumers can relate to. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s a foodie.



Simply put, Karin knows how to make brand strategy beautiful. As an art director and graphic designer, she’s melded the corporate and artistic into elegant, executable solutions for clients like Williams-Sonoma, San Francisco & Marin Food Banks, Vino Volo, Barbara Barry Inc., Urban Remedy, and Chronicle Books. Fitting for a master of typography (which she teaches at the California College of Art), Karin revels in the details—it’s her secret weapon in guiding both large-scale brands and small businesses. As epicurious as Richard, and keen on travel, she’s nevertheless happiest just hanging with design.
