About us

Supermoon creates and transforms brands for today's connected world.

We bring strategic thinking, identity development and design expertise to organizations looking to project authentic points of difference, and to deliver exceptional branded experiences to their customers, employees, and communities.

We've engaged seamlessly with maturing startups, challenger brands and category leaders alike. We develop close partnerships with business leaders and internal design teams to deliver results that move their markets. Our teams excel at building holistic brands through both strategic alignment and full strategic platforms, naming, verbal identity, visual systems, motion graphics, and well-crafted digital presences. With internal design team directors, we bring our own experience in similar midsize enterprise roles to help them develop their teams, align with internal stakeholders, or improve any facet of the brand they are tasked with creating and maintaining, from core principles to delivery.

We’re committed to the organizations we work with.
We'd love to talk about how we can grow with you, too.
