Brand Identity & Graphic Design

Developing a brand’s unique personality, values, and messaging through a cohesive and visually appealing visual language.

Graphic Design

Graphics are at the heart of what we do at The Rhizome Collaborative. With years of professional production experience, our team crafts brand expressions that work seamlessly from print to web. We combine photography, iconography, illustration, fonts, colors, and textures to create striking, original designs for both digital and printed materials. We’re also skilled in presentations, promotional items, fabrication, signage, and packaging. Check out our Little Rae’s Bakery work.

iheart’s series of brand guides are held in an Airtable database that allows everyone in the organization to have acess to materials that help keep the brand’s look and feel managed and intact.

Brand Identity

With a track record of over 100 brand and logo creations, brand management remains a core part of our work. We recognize that a brand encompasses more than just a logo—it’s how you communicate with the world and fulfill your commitments to customers. It’s about tone, voice, values, and the personality that draws people to your doorstep. In terms of visual identity, we equip you with the necessary formats and guidance to present yourself professionally. Like the iheart work seen here.

Unique Projects

Nothing is out of our realm of consideration if it can be a vehicle (both literally and figuratively) for communication. Our experience in 3-dimensional design, signage, fabrication techniques, and working with local artisans allows us to think outside any box shape, like these hot sauce bottles and unique carriers for the Seattle Fire Fighters HealthCare Trust. 

We’re also not afraid to go big, like the signage, taps, banners and color design for the Elliott Bay Brewing Company.

Mentor and Inspire…Many of the things we implemented this year from recruiting videos, employee segmentation and value statements and equity guidelines and templates are relatively new for our organization. You taking the time to introduce me to Basecamp, Miro and fully utilizing Canva has been wildly beneficial for not only SK but our sister companies.”
