We’re known for our brand-centric approach: your brand’s DNA, integrity, and goals are our priority, not the imposition of any kind of look or style.
Skaggs began as a graphic design studio in San Francisco in 1998, with Microsoft and NASA as our first clients. By 2000, when we opened our New York office, we’d grown into an award-winning, branding agency, and since we’ve grown into a full-service branding and digital agency with an international portfolio of clients. Currently a core team of ten, we also work with a pool of talented creatives (writers, filmmakers, photographers, and stylists) to build teams capable of any task. Today, we continue to thrive at making brands heard, seen and known.
According to Phil Jackson, “The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
Since Jackson is considered one of the greatest coaches in the history of the National Basketball Association, we’re willing to take his word on this one. Our team is the heart of this company. We believe that the best creative work is the product of collaboration, so we work collectively on all of our projects. As a result, we know each other pretty well at this point. In short, design mavens, fashion enthusiasts, word nerds, and culture vultures.
We believe in the marriage of form and function, style and substance, rhythm and motion. We don’t shy away from complexity. We like Aperol. We believe that typography can be a spiritual experience, that humor is an essential spice, and that life is better when things just work. We don’t need to run the show, we simply want to make sure that it looks and sounds amazing.
