Same great flavor.

For over 17 years, we worked as Hoon Designs. But one day a routine studio meeting sparked a spirited conversation about our own name and brand. Our capabilities and work had outgrown our image.

We wanted a brand that captured the soul of our practice. The name “Graphite Creative” speaks to the most elemental of artistic actions: making a mark. Almost everything we do starts with this one simple thing.

With a new name and a fresh look, we are more excited than ever to do what we do: help clients old and new attain their goals through compelling, meaningful, beautiful creative. We collaborate closely with you to create a powerful expression of your brand and values

Our work is as much about people as it is business. We would love to get to know you and your organization. Let’s grab coffee and put our heads together about your next big idea.



Swing by and say hey.
