we set the bar just a wee bit higher, promising unique, 'locally-grown' designs that radiate that one-of-a-kind personality of your brand, product or company. anyone can create a logo or one-off design. we create custom art, for those who dare to be different, and hire us.
a brand is much more than a logo, it's how you carry yourself. it's an idea. it's inspirational; to fully understand that, and execute on that philosophy, is what makes the difference between just another new local business and the next local institution. beleive that.
think local. dream global.
social media has become an independent business' best friend; having experienced content creators leverage the pure power of social media can make your small brand go global.
go beyond the logo and social media; create a custom all-encompassing experience for your customers. the brand experience is what creates loyal and devoted fans out of what could have been one-time customers. own. your. space.
spirited custom design + brand architecture + brand awareness + brand experience
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
OSTERIA SEGRETO SPEAKEASY
Our design was created with great detail to our personal story and vision. We gave very little inspiration, yet they were able to create a logo that truly represents not only our business, but our family as well. This is a design that will be a part of our story long after the life of our business.
Deed & Mettle gave us the custom designs we had been looking for, compared to the generic stuff we were getting from other vendors. Our members have loved every single design. They are all so unique and fit the personality of our members! The impact it has had on our events and the pride shown at our box speaks volumes. We have a very close-knit community, and the idea that a simple tee design can help create even more of a sense of community within our box has made us very happy customers!
SANTA LUCIA ITALIAN FESTIVAL
The re-brand took our festival to another level, not only using their designs, but also strategy in implementing them. It helped boost attendance, and merchandise sales quadrupled from previous years.
DOWN SYNDROME ALLIANCE OF THE MIDLANDS
Deed & Mettle never disappoints. They do a fantastic job creating unique designs that appeal to a wide range of ages and backgrounds year after year. They have a knack for being able to one-up the previous year's design, which always amazes us. Our members are always eager for the unavailing of the new shirt and we continue to sell more and more shirts every year. In turn, directly helping our end goal of raising money for our org. I have no doubt their creativity is the driving force behind that.
Independent and unapologetic, Deed & Mettle DESIGN is a custom design & branding studio that epitomizes the 'Modern American Dream.' A new classic. A collective of some of the most talented creative souls you could find locally, crafting simple, classy designs and spirited brand experiences. A lifestyle branding studio for the rare ones out there that prefer the simple things, and a little comfort with their class. A splash vintage vibe. A pour of nostalgia, in honor of times much less complicated. Shake, and you have a purveyor of modern, classic, custom designs and brands. We bring it back to the old school, when one's word was bond and chivalry was very much still alive. How we were raised, being kind, sincere and showing respect was a part of who we were, just as much as looking dapper. It was a standard of doing business. It wasn't a choice, it was a standard. That can't be faked. Now that sh*t is cool. We work hard. Play even harder and 'carpe the f*** out of that diem.' Life is too short to just sit idle and talk, we prove our mettle in thy deed. We create magical designs and brand experiences for those chosen few small, locally-owned, like-minded, independent businesses that want to represent that same high standard and free-spirited, uber-ambitious demeanor we were born of. It's truly about raising up our community, not just our own brand. Partnering with like-minded people. Making this city proud of who we can become with enough hustle and sweat. A true creative studio who lives and breathes this city. A city many other largerf local creative agencies may be embarrassed to admit they are located in, as it may effect their national street cred. F*** that. We. Own. This. Local. Sh*t. We fly that flag proudly. Think local. Design & dream global. The world needs more of that sh*t, seriously.
Because we are so laser-focused on our work, we only take on small local business projects, as we can, and when we feel that perfect fit. This is a mindset, just as much as a business. We know we can truly only bring our high standard of quality design to those businesses that are just as passionate about us, as we are about them. It's never personal, it's all about that cosmic soul connection, friends.
Think our teams would be a good fit? Want to 'Raise a Little Hell" with us? We'd love to chat. Hit us up (here).
