A strong, memorable and well-orchestrated brand identity gives you the credit and recognition your business deserves.

We get involved in the big picture vision and heart of your business. We partner with you to share your brand story on all of your communication materials... from a small piece like a business card, to three-dimensional packaging, to grand scale signage, and to an interactive website.



Sheila Buchanan Coughlan
Creative Director

Sheila has been a graphic designer for 18+ years, and has designed everything from logos to packaging to websites. She works with successful restaurants and star chefs like Jeremy Fox (Birdie G’s, Rustic Canyon, Tallula's, On Vegetables), Zoe Nathan (Huckleberry, Tallula's, Rustic Canyon), Arnold Eric Wong (Eos, Bacar, The Treasury, The Beehive), Kathy Wiley (Poco Dolce) and Bryan Ng (The Spice Table, Cassia) to name a few. She has 18 years of design experience working in the hospitality and food packaging industry.

Sheila has a BFA in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. In 2008, she spent the summer consulting (and sharpening her design and food skills) for a design studio in Zurich, Switzerland (home of Helvetica, cheese and chocolate!).


The Studio

Since launching our studio in 2004, we have been partnering with our clients to translate their ideas into concrete stories, through thoughtful design. We help them tell their brand story beyond the logo, developing it across a variety of design pieces, including print, package design, and web design.

We work with a talented pool of photographers, illustrators, expert printers and web developers who contribute to our project successes along the way.

With our expertise, experience and guidance, we make sure the creative process is smooth and enjoyable and that the end result is something you're proud of.




We love our clients.
