Lúgh Studio is a boutique branding and graphic design firm based in the heart of Brooklyn Heights at the nexus of subway lines, cultures, arts, businesses, innovation, and hipness.
We serve a broad range of clients from Fortune 100s to start-ups. In the 15+ years that we’ve been in business, we’ve helped clients define their core messages, designed high-impact logos, created memorable branding, managed digital platforms, made countless slide presentations, and produced a lot of print and digital collateral. Others have come to us in various stages of the branding process, for specific projects or general graphic studio support.
While we’ve done and like doing work for a wide variety of clients, our two niches would have to be Life Sciences/Pharma and international conferences.
We have worked in over 20 countries, both with clients and local vendors, from putting together a client presentation in Buenos Aires to going on press with local printers on the outskirts of Istanbul. From Bangkok to Johannesburg, Singapore to Santiago, our international experience is shored up by a multilingual staff (Swedish, Spanish, German, and Polish) and our close alliance with Eriksen Translations, with whom we share our office space.
For in the end, we are also translators. We take your message and translate it visually, so that your clients will “get it” at a glance — be it your website, your logo, or a presentation. A glance is all it takes, because it’s all you have before they look or click away.
Our creative process is focused on helping clients define their own identity. Key points along the process ensure that there is clear communication between us.
Interview — Define the project objectives and gather key insights that will motivate brand design.
Audit — Review of the competitive landscape and of your current brand assets.
Creative Brief — Report outlining the objectives, strategy, and tone of the project.
Mood Board — Visual correlation between your brand and message that will guide the design.
Logo Concepts — Translation of the objectives, messages and motifs into a visual interpretation of the brand.
Corporate Collateral — Business cards, stationery, presentation templates, etc., using the elements of the new brand identity.
Brand Book — Document combining the written and visual messages that define your brand.
Brand Guideline — Guide to proper use of your visual assets for future projects.

File Release — You will receive the applicable print and digital files of your visual assets as well as native graphics files for use in future projects.
According to ancient Celtic legend, a youth went to the gates of Teamhair na Rí and asked to meet the King.
“Who are you?” asked the gatekeeper. “I am Lúgh” he answered. The gatekeeper asked, “What are you skilled in? For no one without a skill enters Teamhair.” Lúgh responded, “I am a carpenter.” The gatekeeper replied, “We do not need you, for we have a carpenter.” Not to be easily dismissed, Lúgh continued, “I am a smith.” To this, the gatekeeper retorted, “We do not need you; we have a smith.”
But Lúgh was persistent, declaring that he was a champion, a harper, a poet, a teller of tales, a hero, a sorcerer, and a craftsman. Each time the gatekeeper explained that these trades were already represented in the court of Tuatha Dé Danaan.
Finally, Lúgh instructed the gatekeeper, “Ask the King if he has any individual who possesses ALL of these skills simultaneously. If he does, I will take my leave and not entreat you further.” The gatekeeper went to the King and told him, “There is a young man at the door who should be called the Master of All Arts.”
The King answered, “Let him in — as a man the likes of him has never before been to Teamhair.” After which, the King abdicated his throne to the more worthy Lúgh, who became the new king.
Today this is our guiding principle at Lúgh Studio. We bring to the table all of who we are to help our clients achieve their goals.
