Design for Social Impact

We design brands, business strategy, and digital products. 

We've been in business since 2004, a Certified B Corporation, and Certified women-owned business. We've walked the talk since the very beginning not just in who we work with, but who we are.

We are a team of designers, researchers, and builders who have dedicated our lives to creating change. All of the work we do has to prove a community benefit and meet our own conscious standards. We are all mentors, teachers, explorers, and partners who care deeply about our communities and causes, so we spend a lot of time working with others to help outside of our work here at LimeRed. 

Our staff has always been inclusive and diverse, for 15 years. We are woman-owned and a Certified B Corporation. To us, this is just who we are and it contributes to our different perspective, which hasn’t always been a valued in the marketplace. Now, as people are looking for teams who question standards and build businesses and brands differently, we’re happy to show them a different way.

This isn’t just our job, it’s our life.

From mentoring startups to rebranding an organization to producing augmented reality video, each of our projects is as unique as you are. Instead of using cookie-cutter strategies, we collaborate to co-create human-centered solutions that address your needs and complex challenges.

Everything we do revolves around creating conscious impact. We are deliberate and mindful in our actions and decisions. This is reflected in our company culture and in the projects we take on. 

We hold ourselves accountable to one another, our clients, and ultimately, the world.
