How we can help you

The Original Champions of Design is a branding and design agency. We build and implement identity systems.
And – yes – we are obsessive about what we do. We have to be. There is no end-date to a brand. A successful identity system will live well-beyond our work, so every message must telegraph, every decision must be efficient and every file must be clean.

With experience across industries including the fine and performing arts, sports and entertainment, retail, hospitality, technology, real estate development, startups and nonprofits, we get most excited about taking on new sectors.

Our services include brand strategy, identity development, packaging, wayfinding and signage, exhibition design, motion graphics, book design and interactive.

Clients include the National Basketball Association, Girl Scouts of the USA and Friends of the High Line.

Awards include the Art Directors Club, D&AD, AIGA365, Type Directors Club and Print as well as Best of Show and Judge’s Pick in the 2011 Brand New Awards.
