Our design philosophy: Simplicity.
Our business philosophy: Relationship.

That includes the relationship with our clients, vendors and also the environment. Still Point Design Studio strives to make the experience of working with us a thoughtful, considerate, friendly, and transparent one. In addition, we bring those qualities to our environmental footprint: We strive to conduct business in an ecologically sound manner, using solar energy, choosing recycled and chemical-free materials whenever possible, and reducing waste by recycling, re-using paper matter and limiting the use of plastics and other harmful materials.

Our Services
Book Design.

Our passion lies with the printed word. We have experience with all types of book design: fiction, non-fiction, business manuals, proposals, training workbooks, guidebooks, photography, poetry and art books. With a background in hand-printing and book binding, we literally know how a book comes together from the spine to the head to the tail.

Graphic Design & Branding.

We may not be a big fan of ‘who-done-its’, but for us graphic design is like solving a puzzle of many parts. If you need logo design, brochure design, product packaging, building signage or promotional posters, let us know. From a small postcard to an entire museum installation, we’re the design firm for you.

Web Design.

Partnering with User Interface designers and SEO analysts, we design sites that will give your business or project the online presence it deserves. With an eye toward responsive and mobile-first design, the sites we develop look good no matter what screen you’re on. We’ve come a long way since designing our first website in Unix using HTML back in the ’90s!

Wendy is an editorial wizard with a PhD in neuroscience. When she’s not thinking/writing/podcasting about the mind/brain you might find her throwing pots or dabbling on the cello (among other things)!

Christopher wants you to know that the snuggle is real.

Stephanie Gross
Stephanie Gross Photography

Stephanie is currently in Rwanda for a month, on great photojournalistic adventures.

I want you to know how much I appreciate both your aesthetic and process.  Your approach to the work is fully invested. Not only have I been able to accomplish in weeks what had lagged for over 1 ½ years – but I really like where this is going.  It inspires me to grow what is being accomplished here.

I cannot thank you enough for your help – our online sales are up! Visitor numbers to the house are up, and the boutique is beating our expectations. And the website, which drives all of this – is so much better. Thank you.

JANEVIRGINIA FESTIVAL OF THE BOOK

You certainly have created a lovely finished product. I consider myself truly fortunate to have had an extremely talented, artistic, and imaginative person as you to create “Soul Dust”. I thank you for bringing this pleasure into my life and into the lives of many others.

MICHAELARTIST & ACTOR

I just received my proof! I can’t believe it! Thank you for all of your hard work, it looks great! Yes. I cried. I probably will some more, but it’s not easy to read through tears.
