Studio123 was founded by three young entrepreneurs who strive to create graphic design and digital products that communicate better. We focus on creating results for our clients by understanding their business objectives, and building creative pathways to success. Since 2013, our team has proven its worth through many successful projects.

We believe that our high standards of design excellence, combined with our small and intimate business model, are the foundation of a strong and productive relationship.

Manifesto

In 2014, we wrote a manifesto. Nothing too serious, just a few guiding principles to rely on when we have to make tough decisions.

01

Communicate Better.

Let this drive you.
It’s the foundation of inspired work.

02

Collaborate Always.

Bounce your ideas off your peers.
The best results stem from collaboration.

03

Do Some Good.

Design is a catalyst for positive change.
Take advantage of it.

04

Play Around.

Experiment. Tinker. Break things. Laugh.
If you’re not enjoying yourself, what the hell’s the point?

05

Log The F#*k Out.

Talk face to face. Use your voice. Disconnect.
Bring humanity into your work.

06

Ding The Bell. Literally.

Celebrate milestones in your work and in life.
Don’t be shy, give the office bell a ding.

07

Change Is Awesome.

Let it shape you.
Venture off the beaten path, learn something new and surprise yourself.

08

Share Success.

Success is achieved through the trust of your clients.
Earn your high fives.

09

Respect.

Be inclusive and welcoming.
Respect your client and respect your craft.
