About Hemisphere Design + Marketing

Since 2001, Hemisphere has been serving the South Sound as a full-service design and marketing firm. Our vision? To do thoughtful work with a beautiful aesthetic. In simple terms, to make your company a true double threat: smart and pretty.


Great ideas are beautiful

We're called Hemisphere because we believe in using both sides of our brain — creative and analytical. Why? Because great ideas emerge from a magical marriage of form and function, style and strategy. For us, this means every project should look beautiful and completely rock at the task for which it was created. This form-and-function philosophy makes us an ideal partner for a wide range of clients: businesses, nonprofits, government agencies, school districts, municipalities, and more. It turns out that a lot of people are looking for "it-factor" branding and marketing calibrated to produce real-world results.

Go on, touch our brain. It's fun!
