Where the mountains meet the sea

We began in 2004 as a two-person shop in Los Angeles, with the goal of providing high-level, personalized service. Even as our portfolio has grown to include Fortune 500 clients, we have remained true to that aesthetic — nimble, independent and attentive to our clients’ needs. You’ll always get our A team for every project, no matter the size. Our experience runs the gamut of industries — travel, biotech, health care, high-tech, finance, entertainment, industrial, hospitality, lifestyle, retail, higher education, non-profit and more. We've designed wine labels, named ships, branded start-ups and launched online experiences for industry titans. Today, we set ideas to flight from the legendary creative hamlet of Topanga Canyon, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains just up the road from the Pacific Ocean.

25 years experience in copywriting, branding strategy and message development has instilled in Sean a strong conviction in the importance of brand clarity and cohesiveness.
Trained first as a typesetter and later a graphic designer, Leslie brings strong visual leadership to our tasteful, contemporary design style.
