We're better because we're small. Always thoughtful, never #agencylife.

Design Minded is led by Saundra Marcel, who works with leading brands to develop their unique look and voice, executing across print, digital, and experiential. She provides hands-on leadership and closely engages with clients throughout the process.

Marcel has been recognized in Print and How, and the AAF has awarded her work “best in show” five times. Her team’s work was shortlisted for a Cannes Lions, recognized at the SXSW technology showcase, and covered by AdWeek, Engadget, Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and WIRED, among others.

Design Minded is better because we're small. Clients benefit from a special level of personal attention you won't get from big agencies. We scale for each project based on needs and expertise. This way you get the smartest people staffed just for your needs.

We help bold brands and smart startups achieve their creative potential.

We’re a design company that specializes in thoughtful approaches to brand-building. We unite verbal with visual expression—words and design—for a cohesive look and feel across all touchpoints.

Every client benefits from an understanding of objectives and a special level of personal attention. The result is branding and collateral that’s powerful, delivering the right message at the right time.

We’re small. This lets us work closely with stakeholders for heightened attention on things that matter. No #agencylife. Just smart people digging deep to give your brand the love it deserves.
