Packaging is a brand's most direct connection
to its target audience.
Workshop combines graphic design, strategic methodology, and original illustration to create a bond with consumers that resonates on a deeper level. We believe a brand's job is to do more than just get recognized. It should connect and interact.
At the heart of our process is a drive to find deeper brand meaning. We seek original ways to communicate little details and bigger ideas across the brand experience, adding fine-tuned material that inspires a second glance, and stays with a consumer from shelf to home cupboard.
We create branding for families and kids. We look boutique but we think multi-national. We supply exceptional creative work to our clients, and we make sure they're happier for it. We think we can help you.
Our projects come in all sizes, and so
do our clients.
We’ve worked with a wide variety of brands, from some of the world’s biggest names to small start-ups looking to make their mark. We craft the carefully thought out design needed for brands with years of equity, and step out of the box for new and less established brands to help them build their story.
