What we do

We partner with experts to design intelligent brands and meaningful experiences

Brand & Identity

‘Authenticity' isn’t a destination—it’s the point of departure. We combine exploration, strategy, and design thinking to turn ideas into brands and turn brands into beliefs.

Design Systems

Design systems are a living, breathing element of your brand. We craft intelligent design systems that work across platforms and technologies to convey your brand beautifully.

Exhibition Design

Our multidisciplinary team works with experts and institutions to build experiences true to their intention. We use design to create captivating and consistent experiences, whether telling a story in a natural, virtual or imagined space.

Interactive Design

We view development as a continuation of the brand process—always trying to keep a consistent story. If you have a story to tell, we use the necessary tools to tell it properly. We design and develop solutions that function beautifully across screens and mediums.

Brand Strategy

We have experience with brands at various stages. Whether you're building a new identity, experimenting, or growing—our team creates a design strategy that is custom-fitted to where you're at and where you're heading.

Campaign Execution

A concept-focused campaign is a great way to expand a brand. Our experience and in-house content production know-how allow us to efficiently and consistently craft high-quality branded content and campaigns.


Working from our 1902 Capitol Hill Carriage House.

The Workhorse studio and workshop.
Located just south of Massachusetts Ave, the studio is housed in the historic 1855 W. Walter’s Son Carriage Manufacturing building— one of a few remaining horse carriage production buildings in the city. Craftsmen constructed horse carriages that powered Washington, DC for over 100 years. We’ve grown into our studio over the last few years, starting as a one man desk in an unfinished carriage house to a two floor operation including a full working studio. Now we’re here, continuing the tradition of craft.
