WHAT IS ELLEBY DESIGN STUDIO? 

We’re a multi-disciplined boutique design firm in Richmond, Virginia.

We enable small businesses, startups, makers and craftspeople to share what they stand for—and stand out—through cross-platform storytelling. We engage, inform, and delight by being intentional, curious, and playful. We’re artisans and purveyors of visual goods, perpetual students of our evolving trade. We build forward-thinking brands while reflecting back to the hand-crafted nostalgia of our past.

And most of all, we love what we do. If you like the way we think, we’d love to make your acquaintance.

 

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

Design is our north star, our passion, our wheelhouse—the work we “can’t not do”. We ground ourselves in these values to keep our work compelling, smart, and ever-evolving:

Simplicity
Keep things as simple as possible—but no simpler.

Intention
Know your destination before you start your journey.

Connection
Share stories from the heart. Be warm, emotional, and passionate.

Timelessness
Be steadfast, not trendy. Change without reinventing.

Dedication

Work with integrity, communication, and responsibility.

Authenticity
Make honest, emotional appeals based in truth. 

Social Responsibility
Understand and respect our greater impact on the world.

Independence
Delight in the unusual. Take risks. Create work unlike anything ever seen.

 

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO:

“Design adds value faster than it adds cost”. – Paul Rand

Quality design not only gives businesses aesthetic appeal, it allows space for intangible benefits like trust, loyalty and relevance to grow. We could sit and talk all day about why design matters for businesses—but instead, we’ll show you:
