We stand for all of humanity, the animals, and the earth. We believe humans can do better and be better, one step at a time. So no matter your sex, race, religion, or background, we stand with you and share your desire to contribute to the greater good. Together we are stronger and make the world a better place!
Our studio is dedicated to putting our money where our mouth is by doing our part to make a positive impact in the world. We may be small, but we are mighty and we believe everyone must play their part in making a better world. We hope some of our actions not only contribute to a better world, but inspire you to do it, too!
It is our mission to leave minimal waste for future generations and preserve the precious and limited resources that the Earth can provide. We are committed to practicing a low-waste lifestyle both as individuals and as a studio. This means using less plastic, recycling and composting, buying second-hand, upcycling (a favorite of ours), and sourcing locally, organic, and regenerative.
Design is a tool that can speak a million different words and a thousand different languages. We pride ourselves on designing with inclusion in mind, so no matter your sex, race, religion, color of your skin, or ability, we are your ally and will represent and support you.
We always design using “Green Graphic Design Principles” (a.k.a. cradle to cradle, circular economy) to minimize pollution, climate change, and excess waste. This in turn saves our clients money but, more importantly, ensures there is a future for our planet.
Each year we try to lessen our footprint on the world a little bit more. We are proud to say our studio’s energy is sourced from renewables — meaning that our business and the technologies that keep us running are environmentally-friendly. In 2021, we pledge to offset our digital carbon footprint entirely.
Each year we donate a percentage of our time to helping brands in need develop their own visual identities. Over the years we have given to a variety of businesses from non-profits, to female-owned and sustainable brands. Check out our Giving section below for more information.
It is our responsibility to protect our planet and secure its future. While we practice many sustainable philosophies, each year we pledge to donate 1% of our sales to environment-focused nonprofit organizations and charities — whether or not we are profitable!
