Matthew Schwartz Design Studio Is Now Constructive
I’m very proud to announce that as of today, Matthew Schwartz Design Studio is no more.
For 15 years, it has been our mission to collaborate with nonprofits and academic organizations to develop strategic branding and design exceptional experiences that help advance their missions—and make a meaningful impact in the world as a result. Moving forward, we will continue to pursue this mission with the same passion and commitment as ever. We will just do so with a new name and new brand that more fully embody who we are.
MSDS was created with the goal of doing great work. Along the way, as our brand has evolved and our focus increased, having this work advance important causes in which we care deeply has become integral to who we are. Like many of our clients, our company is built on a culture of continuous learning—both to improve our craft and to learn from our clients. And we’ve been fortunate to partner with experts in fields as individual as foster care, and as global as climate change.
So, with 15 years under our belt, we decided it was time to turn our attention to ourselves and apply lessons learned and expertise gained to strengthening our own brand. To speak more clearly to who we are, what we do, and why it matters—and design a brand worthy of the mission we’re on with our clients.
The result is Constructive, a company that stands for the collaborative, critical thinking in which we’re engaged with our clients to design new ways forward to meet the world’s most pressing issue—locally, regionally, nationally, and globally.
We believe strongly in the power of design thinking and communication to elevate issues, educate audiences, and build empathy that creates action on important issues—whether this means enacting more effective policy and practices, or engaging communities at the grassroots level.
To all our clients who have entrusted us to help them advance their missions, a hearty and heartfelt “thank you!” And to those who are aware of our work or are simply aligned with our mission, we hope to be in touch.
