About Us

Isotope 221 is a multidisciplinary graphic design studio that solves communications problems. By utilizing a balance of strategy, style, and substance, we distinguish our clients’ message in this age of information overload. The projects we undertake are varied, reflecting our broad interests: from fashion websites to non-profit collateral; music packaging to corporate identity. We work closely with our clients; a method of problem-solving that is scientific in approach yet artistic in delivery. Isotope 221 may be small in size, but our impact is large in scope. It is this comfortable size that translates into a better relationship with our clients, helping their companies grow.
