About Us

Small Owl Studio is comprised of us, two hard working art directors who love what we do. We have a combined experience of over 20 years, and consider design an extension of who we are, not a job. Our everyday conversations include design and technology, we live it as a lifestyle. Throughout our careers we have worked with many high profile clients, and ones who are just starting out. We love both. It’s a fantastic feeling to provide our clients with imaginative work that contributes to their success. Our goal is to continue doing work we are proud of, elevating the position of our clients and building our company so that it ensures we can continue.
