Be yourself. Everyone else is taken. — Oscar Wilde



Handshoe is a collective of strategists, designers, web developers, copywriters, social media experts, public relations gurus, photographers, experience makers and coffee aficiandos. We were founded on one main principle: to work with good people who do good things, and help communicate their talents with the world.

We believe in being who you are. Handshoe does not create false brands or catchy slogans that lure in the most customers. We discover who YOUR customers are. We get to know the REAL you. We dig deep; uncover the reasons. It gets personal. There are times you might feel uncomfortable. (Yeah, we said it.) But, our process clarifies your vision, zeros in on your consumer and ultimately, creates the foundation of your authentic brand identity.

Design is how the world sees your company, service or product. It is not mere decoration. It is a plan, an intention, the vessel for your story. We at Handshoe know that even the most brilliant offering or service may never reach your consumer without meaningful design that impacts their senses and connects to their emotions. Design plays a vital role in the success of your brand communication. Our award-winning design team creates identities, collateral, campaigns and social media marketing that is courageous, creative and on-point.

A brand is not your logo and colors, although that is a part of the puzzle. A brand is how your consumers experience and perceive your company, service or product. Your brand is the feeling they get when they think about you and the value you deliver. This brand “perception” is what Handshoe develops through research, strategic planning, design and marketing.
