A small studio with a big attitude.
We moved! but still in the DMV area.
40 miles and 2 states later, we find ourselves wondering...
...where the heck are you hiding all the booze maryland?
Little Studio. Loud Voice. Lots of Attitude.
if you get offended easily, stop reading here. it's for your own good, really.
We solve problems through design and design through the problems.
Gyst is a little design studio with a loud voice. Don't let our tiny size deter you - we are big doers for big dreamers. We don't define ourselves solely by the nouns of what we make because we feel the creative thinking process itself is what leads to the most effective results, regardless of the product or industry. But those nouns are important, too.
If we had to classically define what we do, we designate our specialties as a brand strategy, marketing, and consulting agency who also happens to create accompanying award-winning work. The owners of the business are also the designers, account managers, project leaders, business developers, billing department, and HR. Just kidding, we don't have an HR department.
We focus on creating comprehensive branding and identity systems, products and packaging, exhibitions and events, websites and apps, marketing and advertising, and aim to foster ineffable experiences for humans (and also sometimes dogs).
