About SBD

So often, design determines whether your message is explored or ignored. It should be beautiful and functional. It should get attention, subtly convey personality or corporate culture, and make your message clear and persuasive. It's our aim to develop imaginative design solutions that do all of the above.

As a small studio, we can give clients the kind of individual attention and personal service that they won't find at a large agency. At the same time, SBD handles a large variety and volume of assignments from websites for small to medium size organizations to complex capabilities brochures and annual reports for both corporations and non-profits.

A simple approach…

  • Really listen to client needs
  • Craft custom design solutions that reflect each client's character
  • Make a commitment to quality on every project
  • Pay meticulous attention to detail
  • Respect deadlines and budgets

Great designs paired with exceptional professional service have resulted in long-lasting client relationships and hundreds of successful projects. We hope you'll explore the work displayed here and see that SBD has the capability to handle your projects as well — from concept through completion.
