Who We Are
Matter partners regularly with nonprofits, triple bottom line businesses, healthcare, educational and philanthropic initiatives to deliver beautiful, thoughtful brands that inspire meaningful action. We look forward to being your creative partner.
Most people know branding as the logo, the name and the visuals that identify a company. But it is so much more. Branding is what people remember about you when you're not around. It's what they tell their friends about you when you're not listening. It's what moves people to invite you into their homes, their families, their lives, to align themselves with you on a set of core values and to take action. Branding is an expression of the heart and soul of your company, and it isn't created, it is embodied.
Established in 2010, Matter was envisioned as a scalable branding agency for mission-driven businesses and nonprofits. Today, we include an exceptionally talented pool of creatives - designers, illustrators, photographers, writers, web developers, videographers - that are able to meet the needs of a wide variety of projects with diverse audiences, messages, budgets & timelines. For every project, you have one point person, Creative Director and Founder of Matter, Davina Grunstein. Each project is its own creative journey, but our goal is singular - to create an authentic, elegant, memorable expression of what makes your business matter, to you, and to the rest of the world.
Our relationships with our clients are truly partnerships. We work together with you to get to the heart of your company's identity and mission and to communicate that with intention, beauty and effectiveness, so that it matters as much to others as it does to you. Below are some of our clients:
