We Help Shape the Future.

One idea, one brand, one moment at a time.

A Human-Centered Approach

In everything we do, people come first. Why?

Simply put, we work to touch hearts, engage minds and influence behaviors. This is what we are hired to do. Within strong client partnerships, we define, discover and deliver integrated solutions that help grow strong brands.

It starts with truly collaborative thinking: We break down silos, identify obstacles, share ideas, talk through problems and find out how to unlock potential. From there, we uncover insights within six key areas and use them as the foundation of our creative and problem-solving process.

It’s so fundamental to our method that it is the symbol of our company. We call it our “spark.”

Competitive Benchmarks

The ultimate goal of any brand effort is differentiation. Setting your product apart from its competitors is essential for growth. Our process starts with an understanding of the competitive landscape.

Outside Inspiration

Creativity is fueled by seeing connections where others don’t. We expand our perspective to include inspiration outside the context to generate and uncover new ideas.

Audience Insights

What’s desirable? And what isn’t? It takes curiosity and empathy to sense the delightful. We use quantitative and qualitative tools to segment audiences, uncover behaviors, discover opportunities and form compelling solutions.

Global Trends

LOLcats. Rickroll. WINNING! Selfie. Intense Motivational Speech. Brand success is the target and the reward for the right balance of authenticity, trendiness and convention.


We frame creativity and bold thinking with good business sense. A solution doesn’t solve anything if it’s not part of a sustainable business model. Inspiration. Integration.


We believe truly great ideas are ones that can be implemented today. Understanding constraints and technical requirements is a key component of our methodology.

You’ll find we’re a bit different from other agencies.

Our approach is centered around our client relationships, shared goals and a deep focus on integrated solutions. Our process is iterative, collaborative and insight-driven.

It works within any discipline and at any project level, from strategic and conceptual to the highly tactical. Macro to micro. Questions to answers. Ideas to implementation.

Founded in 2001, Designsensory was started by two friends. Both shared a deep passion for solving business and marketing problems with smart design and robust technology.

People delight in the details of things. That’s why we invest in craft down to the minutia. Getting the small stuff right can elevate simple touchpoints to meaningful interactions.
