Forest — est. 2005 — pursues graphic design through art direction, editions & publishing, branding, web design & development, and other curatorial efforts under the direction of Joel Speasmaker.
Forest realizes simple, compelling work in both the print and digital realms for companies of all sizes and demands. Agile and adaptable to each project, we strive for open and no bullshit collaboration where both parties contribute freely and ego never prevails! In this mindset, Forest holds an affinity for small, hard-working and responsible organizations like our own.
No gods, only work.
