Founded in 2010, Berger & Föhr is an award-winning independent graphic design and communication consultancy. Our creative studio focuses on the development of brand identity for purpose-driven brands. Based in Boulder, Colorado, we produce a broad range of original work spanning brand strategy and identity, art direction, publication and book design, illustration, environmental graphics, and website and app design.
Our combined experience, sensibilities, and studio aesthetic have earned us the opportunity to create work for a wide array of clients, ranging from small, scrappy startups to world-renowned brands. A search for meaning, desire for consistency, and concern for appropriateness propel our studio forward. The pursuit of beauty, yearning for clarity, and intuitive understanding of simplicity compel us to create work that resonates and stands the test of time.
