CONCEPT | DESIGN


From initial brainstorming and visualization to delivery and operations, SideTrip offers highly individualized service beyond typical creative agencies. Our clients range from big-box national retailers and century-old trade organizations to startups and new product incubators.

We believe that each project must carve its own path to success. So whether we are creating a consumer-quality magazine, an engaging mobile app, an inviting retail environment, or branding and packaging that reflect a company’s mission, we join with clients to research, map out and complete that journey.

At SideTrip, we assemble specialized teams to tackle your specific needs. Our core group of designers, art directors, writers, and editors collaborate with strategic partners ranging from software designers to brick-and-mortar builders to bring creative ideas to life.

At the heart of every project is a story—and we are expert storytellers.
