innovative san francisco design agency: project6 design

brand

We are a San Francisco design agency that helps businesses build strong brands. Whether we are redefining an identity for a new company or broadening the scope of an existing one, we strive to create simple, efficient and long-term solutions.

That's because design plays a pivotal role in a corporation’s image. It enhances customer experiences and evokes emotional feelings about services or products. While you cannot control a person’s perception of your brand, you can influence it –by communicating the right messages about your products and services in clear and consistent ways.

print

Graphic design is not just about style. It's about finding the best way to communicate your message. We'll help you produce materials that speak to your audiences in strong and clear ways. From stationery systems and direct mailers to annual reports and corporate brochures, we develop strategic communications pieces that reflect your brand's personality.

Our design work can be geared to match your existing brand image, or we'll help you to define a new look for all your communications with a complete corporate identity.

web

The Web is the ultimate customer-empowering environment. Your visitors decide where to go and what to see. And if they don't like their experience, your competitors are just a click away.

That's why our design agency strives to develop highly-usable interfaces that attract and keep customers. It means creating navigational structures that are easy and intuitive. Email campaigns, interactive ad campaigns, mobile applications and responsive websites are designed so users can find what they're after in a fast and logical way –no matter where they are or what device they're on.
