M&T is a multidisciplinary design studio focused on thoughtful, well-crafted design and a pragmatic approach to bringing ideas into reality. Our work includes a wide range of clients, scopes, and formats with much of it centered around the cultural and tech sectors. We believe strongly in the power of partnership and are fortunate to have several ongoing, multi-year client relationships. We believe these connections attest to our creativity, dependability, ever-evolving know-how, and value. We are a small and talented team with a wide variety of skills and capabilities, and along with our wide-reaching network of partners there is little we can’t do.



We see design as an essential part of our cultural language, with the power to inform, clarify, and charm. In our practice, we place equal importance on both visible surface and underlying structure, and believe that good bones, whether typographic or code, are what makes for functional, beautiful, and lasting design. We strive to create work that is not ephemeral, slick, or trendy, but which has the resilience to mature into an unknown future with its best qualities intact. Though we see our practice as systematic and process-driven, we also think the experience of working with designers should be enjoyable and, yes, even fun. 


We Make it Easy

When we launched the studio, we embraced the motto: “We Make it Easy.” This came out of our prior work as art directors hiring other creatives, in essence, our experience as clients. We noticed who we worked with repeatedly and why. It was often the people that made our job easier, and who made us look good. People who were talented and clever, sure, but also who were organized, delivered on time, who listened, who were enjoyable to work with. People who made the best of the inevitable changes in creative direction or scope. With every project and relationship we try to embody this mantra while producing the best possible design for our partners and, ok, ourselves too.
