and carries them forward in consistent, compelling ways that get results.

Great design has to do more than look pretty.

Why Cole Design?

  • Who We Are

    SINCE OUR BEGINNINGS IN 1987, COLE DESIGN HAS BECOME KNOWN FOR CREATING UNIQUE, INSPIRED IDENTITIES, ENVIRONMENTS AND COMMUNICATIONS TOOLS. From our offices in Nashville, we’ve served diverse clients across the United States, from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and nonprofits. One thing they have in common: They tend to rely on us not just as a vendor but a long-term design partner.

  • What makes us different

    OUR WORK HAS LEFT LASTING IMPRESSIONS. And made for lasting relationships. Some go back to our founding in 1987.

    There are reasons for such unusual longevity. We serve as partners, not just vendors. We dig deeper. Ask more questions. Think beyond the bounds of a single project to understand how it fits into the larger picture of your business, your competition, your organization, and your goals.

    Yet even though we often become interwoven into the fabric of the clients we’ve served for years, we believe we have to earn our reputation every day, with every assignment. That’s our design.

  • Branding

    BRANDING ISN’T JUST ABOUT A LOOK. It’s about reflecting who you are. Your brand “personality.” How your audiences experience your products or services. Your organizational culture. All of those considerations are part of the identity we help create for clients. And we can create the systems and guidelines that help you consistently maintain that identity in all of the ways you present yourself to your stakeholders (both external and internal).

  • Collateral

    THE DIGITAL WORLD HAS HARDLY MADE COLLATERAL PIECES COLLATERAL TO YOUR COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGY. They’re still vitally important. We understand — and design accordingly. And not just that: Like few other companies these days, we oversee (and sweat) every detail of the printing and delivery.

  • Integrated

    DESIGN ISN’T ALWAYS LIMITED TO A LOGO, OR A BROCHURE OR A WEBSITE. Sometimes, it’s everything. The look of an event. A wall display or lobby exhibit. A three dimensional invitation. And it all has to work together, and within your overall look and feel. That’s just what we do, beautifully.
