About DarkSquare Design

We are a team of likeminded designers and developers who are committed to the idea that design should be intentional, and when successful, brings about desired change. We are committed to an academic and adaptive approach to design and devote ourselves to staying on top of technological, social, and design trends related to our industry (visit our blog to see what our weekly reading looks like).

Our focus has been on branding because of it’s overarching influence and importance to all aspects of design and communication that a business or organization engages in. While we have clients across many different industries and markets, our industries of focus continue to be technology, the arts, and education. We are passionate about these areas and actively search out clients that bridge these areas in creative and impactful ways.
