DETOUR: 818 – a tiny design empire

Our bi-monthly DETOUR series of design studio tours and socials continues on September 25th at 818 - a tiny design empire from 5:30-7:30pm.

818 is a design studio located in downtown Des Moines that specializes in brand development, environmental graphic design and graphic services for the brewing, restaurant and hospitality industries. 818 has been in operation in Iowa since April of 2013, but their experience dates back more than 10 years as leaders of the Multimedia and Graphic Design department for a local architectural firm where they had the opportunity to work on design projects for a number of athletic, recreation and corporate facilities across the U.S., incorporating large format murals and dimensional signage into interior and exterior spaces.

Designers at 818 believe great graphic design is only great if it accomplishes the right goals, whether that’s evoking emotion, increasing brand equity, driving sales or building the brand within a building. They focus on harnessing the power of design to move clients’ goals forward. 818 designers are high-talent and low-maintenance, keenly insightful and highly collaborative, devoted to good design and focused on clients. Creativity is fun. Creativity is powerful. 818 puts both fun and power into every project they do.

818 is the September stop on the AIGA Iowa DETOUR. Please join us for their open-house and for a Taco Party!
