Looking is a brand and identity design consultancy. We work with the broadest array of clients in diverse industries, and help them to articulate and express their own unique personality.
All businesses are feeling the effects of a steep recession and learning to operate their business in the most cost effective means.
What we bring to the table are skills to create higher energy in a brand, to increase its impact and clarity, through both reasoned strategy and innovative, powerful design. Our web presentation is intended to capture a cross section of these efforts with some of our clients.
