A branding studio rooted in honest narratives
I’ve worn many hats in the creative industry, working as a project manager and producer for high-profile design agencies to running my own successful commercial & editorial photography business. The common thread that has made all of these roles successful is creative and effective communication. I work with our clients to uncover their true goals & intentions and translate that to a fun and effective plan to transform their identity into something beautiful.Allison Usavage has managed creative projects with clients such as Microsoft, Google, Adobe, Shopify, Cornell University, Planned Parenthood, and many small businesses. Her creative work has been featured by National Geographic, Buzzfeed, Martha Stewart, and Food & Wine Magazine, among others.
I've spent over a decade making visual identities for a variety of clients. The experience I've accumulated has allowed me to evolve into a versatile creator, making a variety of assets each with multiple uses and destinations. I'm just as happy and effective at recording video as I am composing the music that will go with it, or designing and developing the website it will ultimately live on. I enjoy contributing typefaces to the open source community.Tyler Finck has worked with Google, Chronicle Books, NBC Universal, AT&T, and the Planetary Society. His designs have been used by Target, HBO, Ritz Carlton, Tom’s, Shure, Buzzfeed, Harper Collins, New York State Parks, and President Obama.
