Scope of Work
  • Brand Identity Design

  • Book & Print Design

  • Copyediting

  • Icon Design

  • Imaging

  • Public Ad Design

As a rapidly scaling business aiming to solve one of the country's largest problems, the Groups brand needed to be flexible, welcoming and trust-building. They were finishing the design of their first two offices when they came to us for branding. They had no identity other than a name and the paint color used for their offices. They needed patients, their loved ones, and the medical community at large to understand what they offer, how effective it is, and what sets them apart from all the other treatment facilities in the country.
