It’s easy to get inspired here in Burlington, VT, where Lake Champlain sparkles, farm-fresh food abounds, the art and music scene booms, and two mountain ranges beckon during all four seasons. Every day, we tap into that inspiration and infuse it into our work, ultimately delivering design and branding solutions that resonate, delight, connect … and yes, inspire.
Our strategic design and communication solutions are driven by the belief that thoughtful, purposeful design has the power to generate joy and human connection around every brand experience, ultimately making the world a better place to live.
Inventive, experienced, industrious, and full of heart. These are just a few ways to describe our dynamic group.
The Chinese folktale Ten Red Crows tells the story of the origin of our Sun: ten red crows flew to the stars and filled their plumage with the wisdom, light and brilliance they found there. They flew back to Earth, where they were too bright; the good archer shot nine from the sky, leaving the tenth in his perch on the East Mulberry Tree. Each day he flies around the Earth as our Sun.
In our work as branding, graphic design and marketing experts, we take very seriously the process of shedding light on the innermost part of a brand, because that is usually where the emotionally resonant, compelling, simple and essential elements lie, the ones that set it apart from the crowd and the competition. For the businesses and organizations we work with, we’re that torchbearer, exposing the heart of each brand and bringing it into the light. We’re the tenth crow.
