Welcome to Storia Design Studio

A Day in the Life of a Design Studio

We’re an international graphic design studio based in Manchester, England and Florence, Italy. We work with individuals, startups, and creative teams – such as biofuel initiatives, earth-friendly cosmetics companies, and organic producers – on projects that are ecologically and culturally conscientious, innovative and exciting.

We communicate our clients’ stories and corporate identities with logos, branding, product and package design. We’re absolutely smitten with design and the written word; from etymology to the classics, typography to semicolons, logo designs to character arcs. We’re a veritable think tank of design, marketing, and storytelling enthusiasm.

On any given day, we’re talking with creatives, entrepreneurs, and corporations around the world who are changing the world and making amazing things, from Paris to Tokyo, Chicago to Amsterdam, and Florence to London. We love the fact that we exist between time zones and industries and are able to share ideas and inspiration between cultures, creative enterprises, and market leaders.

Three Steps to Awesome

  1. We’ll get to know you and your product inside-out and perform an in-depth market analysis to get a feel for the other goods and services you’ll be in direct competition with. Why is yours valuable, unique, and indispensable? These are the questions we need to answer.
  2.  Armed with a massive amount of research and a solid understanding of the market, we’ll then get to work with our old-school paper and pencils and brainstorm designs that will perfectly express your brand identity.
  3. Then we’ll hop on over to Photoshop and Illustrator where we’ll whip up some preliminary vector graphics, color swatches, etc. to create a mood board of inspiration for your approval. It’s great fun.

Bring on the Mood Boards!

We’re always looking for ways to think laterally and elastically, stretching our imagination in new ways, and looking for cutting-edge companies and products that demand this of us. We often feel like we’re playing in a sandbox. This is just too much fun. We love our work and this shines through with every pencil sketch and pixel.

Whether you’re looking for a startup logo, rebranding advice, cosmetics label design, or tram-wrapping advertisements, we’re happy to brainstorm and we love a good challenge.

Let’s create a mood board and throw ideas around!
