Branding and graphic design that’s honest.
It takes 1/10th of a second to form a first impression.
If you want long-lasting relationships with loyal customers, they need to be able to trust you. So how do you build a brand based on first impressions?
Think: Winning ticket smile, the right handshake, and purposeful eye contact. When you first meet someone, a positive first experience is unforgettable.
Strong brands inspire strong connections.
People look beyond your brand. They also care about who stands behind it. Who you are, what you stand for, and your impact on the world are all crucial considerations when it comes to building a solid brand strategy.

We always consider:
What makes a
good great brand?
Every brand has its own unique personality that stands out from the ordinary. We help bring your personality into every design because a great brand considers that first impression of the people who buy from you.
Identity Made Visual
According to Canva, 90% of all information transmitted to our brains is visual.
So, what is visual identity in graphic design? Visual elements that will act as the face of your brand to convey intangible qualities through color, images, and shapes.
Our graphic designers are visual artists who believe in creating tailored strategies paired with careful use of color, shapes, and just the right amount of beauty to communicate your brand in a way that fully grasps the attention of your target audience.
Impactful Graphic Design
We aren’t just designers, we’re artists too. Our team creates graphic design pieces from an artist’s perspective. We also understand that impactful design is what most small businesses want to achieve for their own brand, so we ask:
- What design is going where?
- How will it feel for those who interact with it?
- Is it adaptable to the environment in which the design will live?
Whether you’re looking for social media graphics or a new logo design—we always strive to deliver quality designs that we’re proud of and know you’ll love too.
We create designs that...
We won't redesign the wheel. We’ll improve it.
Here's how it all works:
Just an amazing experience from start to finish. Smack Happy built my company logo from scratch and I was so impressed with how attentive they were to every little detail in the process. They blend creative design with professional, prompt responsiveness. They met every deadline and created a beautiful logo without much direction from me – yet they were still able to understand my vision. Highly recommend that you work with them.
