We create functional designs across all mediums of branding, so what you see in print is exactly what you’ll see online - one seamless communication strategy. We may design with an eye for beauty but we create with a foundation of function. At Patch, we aim to deliver brand clarity by creating engaging and complete interactive experiences that people can relate to. Big or small, print or online, layout or navigation – we have creative solutions for every design challenge.

Working for an eclectic range of clients, our goals are always to grow a business through effective and relevant design, be it for an entrepreneurial company, a not-for-profit organization or a national corporate client. Helping each of our clients to achieve their design needs is our mandate and making sure that we work as an extension of their team – is a must!

Together, we aim to build collaborative communication channels to successfully complete every design objective for each of our clients. With Patch, you’re in a good hands.
Why am I an RGD?
Supporting RGD through my membership means advocating for our profession. The association is actively engaged in conversations around spec work, and the value of design in a business and cultural context. On an individual level, I value the support I've received from the community, as well as the numerous resources to help further my professional development.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?
Acting as a judge in the RGD Student Awards allowed me to share the experience I've gained in my career with individuals at the beginning of theirs.
