cl design is an independent graphic design studio based in New York and Paris.

With more than thirteen years of experience, we’ve put together the perfect team, a mix of creative thinkers with diverse and complementary backgrounds.

Vision

cl design turns information into experiences for users.

We believe that design and ergonomics should serve the visitor.
The physical spaces and digital environments should create emotion through their values and aesthetics. What results is an experience that the user will remember.

cl design tells complex stories with simple shapes.

We believe that the narrative carries the visuals.
In order to exist, the communication must be carried by the story.
Each brand should invent its own language combined with images that convey its unique story.

cl design create signs that make sense.

We believe that less is more (more or less).
The visual universe of a brand must be composed of signs that make sense.
A typography or pictogram’s design is the foundation of a strong identity.
