Hotel Graphic Design Co. is an Edmonton-based branding and design studio. We respectfully acknowledge that we are situated on Treaty 6 territory, the traditional land of First Nations and Métis people.
We’ve worked with everyone from punk rockers to mayors. We design and build brands by understanding who you are and where you’re going. Our approach is strategic and honest. We like to ask questions. We like to listen. We work collaboratively, quickly and respectfully. Our work has been featured in numerous publications, won awards and most importantly, has brought communities and people together.
We offer the following services:
Design is a human interaction.
We design for people. Effective design considers the content and the context of the situation and its footprint on the human condition.
Function, then form.
A beautiful gun is still a gun. We fear the consequences of our work more than we love the cleverness of our ideas.
Teamwork makes the dream work.
Design is a collaboration. You bring your expertise, we bring ours. We work together to create something memorable.
Ears wide open.
Listening is a design skill. Multiple points of view create better stories and build more inclusive communities.
