Simpatico Design Studio is a unique design and branding agency where big ideas spring to life within a small family-like environment.

Think of us like the cool house on the block where the door is always open and the beer and pretzels are always free for the taking. And every day is casual Friday.



Brand Consultation & Development

Your brand image is not just a really cool logo slapped on letterhead. We’ll analyze, challenge and recreate the story your company tells though planned strategy and kick butt creative.

Graphic Design

Think all things printed with ink and we’ve got it covered. Collateral, stationery packages, point of purchase, even that Christmas card you got from your vet.

Web Design & Development

We do web. We make it smart and pretty then we make it work – even on your 72 year old uncle’s computer with IE8.

Brand Engagement

That million dollar idea that woke us at 3am is only good if people see it. From print to web to the pen you snatched from the bank last week. We’ve literally got it covered.

Social Media Asset Design

I tweet, you tweet, we all tweet for retweets! Time to revamp your social media’s visual presence? Let’s snapchat!

Online Support & SEO

This is where our native geek speakers come in. Because honestly, when was the last time you meta data’d?


We’re a husband and wife team with loads of agency experience behind us. We’ve worked in the cubicle laden offices and climbed the corporate ladders—long enough to know it’s not our happy place – nor a requirement to produce great work. We’d rather be creating new furniture from old doors, mastering a new recipe, or crafting the next big idea for one of our clients while working from the couch in our comfy pants. So we created a different kind of agency, one that merges creativity with lifestyle, and allows us to work with talented, successful, passionate people around the country without having to leave the comforts of our home/office.

Let’s be real. We have kids, carpool, dinner to make, and an endless list of DIY projects to complete. And creativity doesn’t always happen between the hours of 9 and 5. So we built Simpatico around those everyday treasures and hurdles, so we can do the work we love while living the life we’ve always dreamed of.


At Simpatico, our focus is on building friendly, compatible relationships with our clients, complementing your strengths with ours to make something new and altogether better together.

Like peanut butter and jelly. Cake and ice cream. Gin and tonic. Anna and Elsa.

Our business and your business.

We go together.

  • To borrow a line from Cannons commercial with Andre Agassi “Image is Everything”. Simpatico Design Studio has handled for our entire brand image from our in house marketing to all our point-of-sale and direct mail materials. As a family business, the way in which we present ourselves to our customers and the community affects us on a personal level. There’s only one company that I trust to handle all of my branding, and that’s Simpatico Design Studio.

  • Unbelievable. You are a genius. I think this is perfect. I don’t think I have seen a mailing I like as much as this one.

  • Those designs are incredible! Linda and I are literally speechless. You and Dave did a spectacular job, and it will take me the entire weekend to decide. Thank you so much for working with me, and helping me get my business under way.

    I feel classy already…

  • It’s truly remarkable.  Seriously impressive.  I’m in awe.

  • I have nothing but the highest respect and appreciation for Amy and Dave.  We first began working with Amy on a groundbreaking piece for the USO.  She was able to make photos work that no other artist could.  Her creativity is matched by her professionalism and I routinely recommend her for work when I have the opportunity. Our experience with Dave has been equally rewarding.  We were so impressed with Amy that when it came time to build our web-site we naturally went to Dave.  Dave built a superb web-site for us ON TIME and ON BUDGET.
