Sustainable Brand Design

Ethics, Environment and Economy

We take on projects that we get excited about and work with clients we respect. The day that becomes impossible is the day we shut this puppy down and go sell insurance.

One thing you will not find at Modern Species is a bunch of tree-hugging, Kumbaya-singing, Utopians. We’re practical idealists who push each other and our clients to be better. Better for society. Better for the environment. Better for the economy. That’s what sustainability is and we practice it because we think good business should be the only business.

If you're looking for a design studio that will act more like a partner than a vendor, you've come to the right place. We believe you’re the expert on your business and we’re the experts in design and branding, and together, we can make beautiful brand babies.
