About flourish design studio Inc.

Creativity is the seed of a unique brand image. Technical expertise brings creative ideas to life.

Often, when we think about design, the creative aspects come to mind. Yet the design is only a dream until the execution brings it to fruition. Many creative ideas never get off the ground for lack of ability to make them real. At Flourish, we have both sides covered - understanding the marriage of both technique and creativity — to make your ideas soar.

A balanced approach to the design process: the science & art of design

Technical expertise
brings ideas to life...
The science of design.

Executing on creative ideas requires a technical proficiency we correlate with the left brain. At Flourish, we excel at building brand experiences, including web and print designs, that effectively deliver your message while maintaining that great creative edge. Great design results from our ability to be both creative and technically adept. With the ability to see the 'big picture', we are able to push boundaries because of our understanding of how to make ideas into reality, taking you to the next level.

Creativity is the seed of
your unique brand...
The art of design.

Coming up with creative and engaging ideas is the part of design sparked by the right side of the brain. Conceiving collateral with your content — that supports and understands your brand and audience — while delivering a carefully planned user experience is our forte. Something as seemingly simple as a logo requires using a visual language to communicate to the audience. The complexities of color, image, type style, and concept all carry messages. Blended properly, the visual message of your logo and other business materials makes a powerful statement about your business. Flourish expertly layers the right assets together to convey a rich message.
