Your Brand, Greater Impact
INSIGHTS-DRIVEN IDENTITY & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
We're experts at brand naming and logo design. But we think holistically, too—creating a brand that influences every aspect of the customer experience. Whether it's a whole-brand refresh or a small design project that fits into your existing brand, we think about more than a typical design firm can.
Baskin Robbins Korea
We headed to Seoul to lead consumer research and a Design Sprint that lead to a series of best-selling ice cream treats. We helped our clients think about about everything from flavors and textures to visual and verbal communication for all future promotional materials and ad campaigns. Read all the sweet details on our blog!
Services: Global Consumer Research, Editorial, Packaging, Product, and Communication Design
We worked with yacht captain, educator, musician and all-around Renaissance man Blake Ragghianti to develop a brand for his independent distillery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He has a passion for learning from the very best distillers in the world—whether in Italy or in the Caribbean—and using their wisdom to inform his own craft. Blake also wanted a brand that would honor his uncle, a commercial pilot and his childhood hero.
Services: Naming and Identity
Packaging that Leads to Purchases
Great packaging should look gorgeous, absolutely—but it needs to do a whole lot more than that, in a very small space. It needs to speak to your target consumer in every way, from the colors to the type design, from the wording on the front to the form semiotics of the packaging. It needs to stand out from the competitive set. And it needs to scream off the shelf! Let SkyDesign bring our years of Fortune-500-level experience to your products, and find out just how much attention you can grab!
We updated the existing Tabasco Brand Sriracha bottle, which many consumers had described as appropriative and a bad fit for the brand. Our new design reflected Tabasco's identity as the 150 year old American heritage brand that grows and curates the world's best peppers. Peppers that just so happen to make a darn good Thai-style chili sauce.
Services: Packaging Design, 3D Modeling
Seamless Brand Experiences
We take an integrated approach to brand presence. Our brand design breathes life into events, packaging, annual reports, and direct-mail marketing, which translates seamlessly into online experiences and e-commerce.
Innovatus Cross-Industry Summit
We joined forces with two forward-thinking firms to host a cross-industry innovation summit. And with a guest list that included top executives from major companies, the website and event branding had to be cutting-edge too! From a stylish website with great information flow to elegant brochures, signage, and more, Skyscraper provided the world-class design skills that let Innovatus shine!

Fairway Architectural Railings
Fairway came to us for a custom exhibit experience for their new architectural railing solutions. We created an immersive experiential booth that stood out in form as well as function. We also leveraged the latest in virtual reality technology for viewers to see in 3D what each rail system would look like in three different homes.
