stories through design.
Why We Do It.
Smith & Sylvan was founded on the philosophy that in order to build a great brand, there needs to be greater emphasis on how that brand connects with its intended audience.
There are many ways this can be done, but we believe it all begins with the WHY of the business, which then leads to developing a visual language that is clear, effective, and targeted. No relationship can thrive, let alone last without a great foundation of clear and effective communication and this is what we look for when creating appropriate and flexible brand identities for conscious-driven businesses.
Owned and headed by Randy Smith, a seasoned multidisciplinary designer whose passion is building trademarks & identities that inspire timeless impressions, Smith & Sylvan leads with the experience of knowing first-hand the pain-points of what it’s like to work with individuals/businesses who don’t have a vested interest in providing value to their clients.
This is an area of focus that separates us and our services from so many others and as a result, Smith & Sylvan thrives on establishing a “real” relationship of trust that becomes the anchor for your business and it’s unique needs.
Providing lasting value through the art of problem-solving has always been our ultimate goal, and we’re here to help guide and nurture you and your brand each step of the way.
