Let's create your new
Some of the good people we've been working with lately.
The name "Pen & Mug" is a nod to the first two things we reach for whenever we begin a new project, and a symbol that represents the core service of our brand.
(see "WHY hire us")
Our service is a marriage of the two. We build up brands of all sizes by carefully constructing a full suite of creative solutions that work together to make your brand more accessible and memorable to your affiliates, customers, and fans – both your very best, and the ones you haven't met yet.
(as explained by coffee)
The experience exceeded all of our expectations! Everyday people tell us how much they love our logo, and we couldn't be happier with our choice to work with Pen & Mug!
Austin has distinguished himself among the very best designers we’ve had the pleasure to work with in nearly 5 years...but more importantly he’s just an open and friendly guy who really cares about producing good work.
Pen & Mug delivers. Period. On the creative side they're collaborative, imaginative, multi-talented, and unafraid to try new things. As a business they're prompt, organized, dependable, and super helpful. They're the kind of vendor you wish existed until you find out that they actually do!
Pen & Mug was the perfect fit for our project...we have a logo that has allowed us to brand our team more effectively than ever and jerseys that have made us the envy of every tournament.
Austin is very personable and easy to get in touch with. He has always been willing to collaborate with us and work with our schedules, and he took the time to get to know our band in order to create a final product that really represents us well.
Austin at Pen & Mug is how do we say... the MAN! He didn't get discouraged with our crazy wants and needs, he just wanted to give us a final product that we would be abundantly happy with. He turned a last minute idea into a brilliant design.
Austin carries himself and his work with confidence, professionalism and poise. What I liked the most is that he is ready to give advice, while at the same time showing sensitivity to yield to my preferences. I can say from experience that Austin has the rare ability to translate ideas and rough parameters into a form that meets and exceeds the expectations of his client.
The turnaround was quick and Austin was accessible to me if I had any questions or revisions. Austin was patient as I described the look and feel that I wanted for the project and was quick to offer other property examples to further my design vision. It was as if he was reading my mind!
The greatest visual artist ever!
