branding and design

The Cooper Studio’s primary focus is design and creating visual identity systems supported by a foundation of research and strategy to help you reach an audience. All visual elements should speak to the brand and connect with your consumers. This includes services like concept development, brand strategy, art direction, design, and content creation. 


Web Design

After the Visual Identity is established, time to put it to real world application. That could look like any collateral like business cards, brochures, wayfinding signage, menus, coasters, apparel, but the biggest need usually ends up being in the format of a website or microsite.



This can include headshots, product photography, lifestyle, editorial, or studio shots. Having custom photography makes for a robust brand experience.



Illustration is another tool in my tool box, and could manifest during the design phase or come later in the form of watercolor, oil painting, ink drawing, or digital illustration.
