What We Do

Designlounge is a Brooklyn-based design firm. We are in the business of creating and evolving brand identities to tell our clients’ stories. We create visual identities, printed materials, complex communication systems, and website designs for non-profit organizations, universities and schools, arts institutions, companies and travel resorts. With each assignment our goal is to create memorable and effective design solutions.

How We Do It

“Everything is always about the details.” How we work is the same for each project: We are curious and interested in our clients’ businesses and missions, we ask questions and listen. And we pay attention to detail. We would love to hear about the details of your next project and discuss how we can help evolve your brand.
