Okay, choose your office. Portland or Menlo Park. Beer or cabernet. Hiking boots or flip-flops. Either way, we’ve got you covered. Through a combination of insightful thinking and engaging design, we’ll develop the seamless branded environment you desire.
Searching for a firm to develop or strengthen a brand? We focus on four design disciplines: brand development, corporate communications, digital branding, and marketing communications. We also have extensive experience launching new companies and new brands.
Clients say there’s a tangible Michael Patrick Partners experience. It means working with an insightful, creative process that spans strategy, content, and design—a strategic, comprehensive approach to building brand value. The result is a seamless and enduring branded environment.
We’re usually hired for one of three reasons: to help maintain or grow the market share of an existing brand, to help a brand become more relevant, or to help a new venture look like one of the Fortune 1000 on day one. And then there are our 500+ awards of excellence—that’s another story.
Review an engaging body of work that ranges from beer to banking and everything in between.
Although we don’t take on assignments for their award potential, clients do tend to seek us out because of our high creative standards and a reputation for winning awards.
In 1999 and 2009, Communication Arts honored our firm in its forty- and fifty-year anniversary issues by selecting the logo we designed for E*TRADE as one of the most significant (memorable) examples of brand development design created during the past decade. AR100, Communication Arts, GDUSA, and Graphis, along with other prestigious international design publications, regard our work as consistently innovative and representative of the design industry’ prevailing standards.
By any standard, we’ve won an amazing number of awards. Actually, we lost track years ago—we just got tired of all the counting.
