More Work

We build brands for visionaries

What do we mean by that?

In short, we think big for people who think big.
Regardless of the style of the client, our same approach and principles apply. We make considered, relevant and long-lasting brands for visionaries of all varieties.

OMFGCO exists to find a better way.


Every Decision
is a brand decision

With a strong foundation, we can build (practically) anything.

We can do a ton of things, but these are the places we shine:

  • Strategy & Positioning
  • Naming & Branding
  • Environments & Interiors
  • Logo & Visual Identity
  • Copywriting & Brand Voice
  • Packaging & Collateral
  • Caring & Getting People to Care
  • Digital Design & Development
  • Consultation, Speaking & Other Engagements

Our
secret
sauce

We might seem a little rough around the edges, but we know who we are. These are our core values:

Best Idea Wins.

We champion an idea meritocracy—a good idea can come from anyone.

Stay Outside.

We approach our work with more questions than answers. By starting with a “beginner’s mind,” we can clear the noise and get to the root of what matters.

Water the Plants.

Regardless of our titles, our job descriptions are simple: make everyone else’s lives easier. How can we help?

Everything is an Opportunity.

Limitations, speed bumps, and course changes are going to be a part of every job—we choose to use them as ways to be more creative and make better work.


Our
studio

This is where we used to hang out before COVID-19 hit. We've been working from home since March 1, 2020. Hope we can see y'all IRL again soon.
