Design is personal. It is created by people, not corporations. You know this; we love this! Some could even call us obsessed. Companies aspire to create meaningful connections with employees and customers through their brands. We know the feeling: we’ve got a serious relationship with design, and we’re in it for good. We’re constantly thinking about what inspires long-lasting connections, and we know that design has the power to play a starring role. Design feeds our quirks, habits, compulsions, and designery-ness. It fuels our passion for doing great work with awesome clients.

We’ve created a video to give you a glimpse inside the minds, the desks, and the sketchpads of our designers. We are fun, friendly, thought-oriented, process-driven people. But like our creative-fueled brains, we are almost never linear. We’re addicted to ideas. We love what we do. We’re Gensler Brand Designers.
