After 15 years of developing brands in the top design studios, and engaging shoppers at the best advertising agencies, we created Map — a design agency hell-bent on helping brands connect with their audience with big ideas, brought to life beautifully.
Making a good first impression is important, but forming solid relationships helps to build brand equity. We create authentic impressions that are unique, ownable, and memorable.
To design is to develop and implement a plan of action. When executed with strategy and beauty, design makes it easy for your audience to understand what your brand stands for.
While design seeks to educate and inform, advertising helps to convince and persuade. Above the line or below, let’s develop a campaign that’s compelling across any channel.
Designers, writers, illustrators, photographers, directors... UX professionals, programmers, animators.... Thinkers, strategists, planners... We're creative communicators and passionate problem-solvers.
Concept ad campaigns, design logos, develop marketing platforms, write scripts, layout magazines, name companies, code websites... We simplify the complex with clarity and creativity.
We start by learning and collaborting with you. Together, we work to uncover insights, discover problems, outline needs, concept ideas, design options, develop prototypes, present solutions, make connections, and deliver results.
We founded Map in 2020, after spending the previous 10 years as Creative Directors, Copywriters, and Designers at the top design studios in Connecticut.
We've developed branding, packaging and identity systems for businesses ranging from start-up to Fortune 500, and set new standards for editorial and web design in industries such as telecommunications, healthcare, finance, and higher education.
No matter what the communications challenge — and regardless of the ultimate solution — we believe the best investment a brand can make is good design.
