Welcome to our neighborhood.

When Julie Sherman opened the studio in 2007, she wanted to create meaningful designs for brave and inspiring organizations. Over the past decade, Julie has built a small team of talented, kindred spirits. We work collaboratively so that every project benefits from our combined expertise, and we’ve surrounded ourselves with trusted collaborators—writers, printers, web developers, and photographers—who believe in the power of relationships.
