About Pencilbox

The forming of Pencilbox studios and its partnership philosophy:

THE “WHAT IF” SCENARIO
What if we formed a design studio? What if this studio was a collaboration of great designers and image-makers who were not only talented but also people we want to spend time with? What if we focused not just on specific industries or tactics but on specific “types” of clients? Clients who care about their audience through human-centered design? What if we only accepted work that was, let’s say, refrigerator worthy?

Those ”what if” conversations lead to Pencilbox and the Pencilbox ideology: Good Work, Good Clients, Good Success.

PENCILBOX CREATIVE PARTNERSHIP DEFINED
Pencilbox studios is a collaborative of creative principals and partners who work together to create experiences that inspire people to action, while building strong partnerships with our clients. The Pencilbox name reflects our creative team building process, the essence of strong concepts and a commitment to human-centered design. Just like the contents of a Pencilbox, our team offers a diverse combination of skills and abilities — photography, creative direction, project management, design, copy writing, user experience and strategy.

Listen, Think, Create, Confirm, Repeat.
