Our Work

A good design process starts with questions. How did you get into this field? What sets you apart? What are your dreams? If we look back on this project in two years, what evidence will we have that it was a success? And even: how will this project pay for itself? The answers point the way to designs that are as individual as our clients. Explore our projects below and see for yourself!

The Petra Foundation

Visual Identity & Print Design

Rather than focusing on a single issue, The Petra Foundation focuses a single type of person: unsung heroes fighting for social justice in their communities. Four such people are inducted each year as permanent Petra Fellows.

SerumDPT

Visual Identity & Website Design

Three young entrepreneurs — average age 83 — have proven that their invention works, but they’d rather not develop a product. Instead, they’d like to sell their startup, SerumDPT, to the highest bidder. Our job? Design a visual identity that makes SerumDPT look every bit as desirable as their invention.

The Shanghai Quartet

Visual Identity, Blog, Bilingual Website Design

“Our website looks like a Chinese menu,” complained Nick Tzavaras, cellist of the celebrated Shanghai Quartet. He wasn’t wrong. But clients who know they need design help may still feel reluctant to overhaul things.

Alban Gerhardt

Visual Identity, Blog, Multilingual Website Design

German cellist Alban Gerhardt has been our client for 15 years, and the website we first built for him was one of our very first. Alban is one of the great living cellists, but also a true artist: he has a powerful musical vision and the courage to let loose.

Bo Burlingham

Website, Stickers, Slideshow, Email Signature

Working for business writer Bo Burlingham has been a big deal for Roundhex. Not because he’s a lovely guy and a great client (he is!) but because promoting his books has meant that we’ve read his books — and they’ve had a profound influence on us.

David Laskin

Visual Identity & Website Design

When award-winning author David Laskin approached us about redesigning his site to match his new book, The Family, we suggested a different approach. We knew this wouldn’t be his last book. Did he really want to pay us to redesign his site for every new release?

Lisa Rogak

Website Design

We knew we had a grand opportunity when author Lisa Rogak asked us to redesign her site. As one reviewer put it, she has written “the most absurd selection of books known to man.” Lisa’s only request was that the site be playful and interactive.

Pamela Ryckman

Visual Identity, Website, Social Media, Business Cards, Email Signature

Pamela had already made it as a writer when she approached us: she was writing for the New York Times and other major publications. But she had a glimmer in her eye, an idea for a book, and a wish to land major speaking engagements.

Kneerim & Williams

Atelier New York

Website Design

We’ve presented many seasons of Atelier New York’s high-end fashion offerings, but it’s the boots — irregular, hand-made, and gorgeous — that have awed us every time.

Stone Roberts

Website Design

If it surprises you to learn that artist Stone Roberts spends 6 to 12 months (solid) on a single painting, it probably means you’ve never seen one of his masterful works up close.

Peter Nocella

Website Design

Composer Peter Nocella’s enthusiasm for intellectual and musical exploration is infectious. And it was this quality that inspired us to ask: how might one translate principles of musical composition into graphical composition?

Mira Wang

Website Design

She may play Mozart on a 1715 Stradivarious, but violin virtuoso Mira Wang is nothing if not modern — and it comes across in her personality as much as in performance.

Labyrinth Books

Website Design

Labyrinth Books wants you to get lost. And they mean that in the best way. The Princeton-based shop is a place you’d actually want to get lost — lost in their stacks, lost browsing tables of staff picks, and lost in books you didn’t know you were looking for.

Curt Cacioppo

Paula Kluth

Website Design

Dr. Paula Kluth is a consultant, author, and scholar who guides teachers and parents in creating engaging classrooms inclusive of students with disabilities. While she is a formidable figure in her field, we did not want to design a site that would portray her as an intimidating expert.
