about

Onethread is a graphic design studio, launched in 2003, that develops corporate and consumer programs, both big and small, on and off-line. We work with a wide variety of clients, each having their own unique story to be told. Publishers, foodies, object makers, shoe empires, educators, do-gooders, and don’t forget the smarty pants (engineers). We enjoy partnerships with strategists, illustrators, press relators, photographers, developers, and word wizards. Some clients require the whole crew, others only the night shift.

We think successful design is a visual translation of sound strategy – yours or ours. (Pretty pictures can always be painted on the weekend.) Brand languages require one unifying thread, an underlying structure, from which a visual vocabulary can be developed and expanded. Onethread’s job is to explore the boundaries of identity so our clients are not only successful, but noticed, understood, and remembered. We are very lucky to like what we do.
