WHAT IS SENN & SONS ALL ABOUT?

Senn & Sons is a boutique design and creative studio focused on building strategic brand identities and creative work for companies seeking growth and transformation, as well as creating surface pattern designs for products in every category. Each project begins with getting the full team focused on clear shared goals and dream outcomes. Clients tell us we can translate the chaos in their minds into clear, cohesive ideas and designs, bringing their vision to life. When we start there, the creative process leads us to the exact desired result.

Senn & Sons’ founder, Kim Senn, has more than 20 years of experience in brand communications. First at award-winning global creative agencies, working with large clients like Ray-Ban, Virgin Mobile, NVIDIA, LensCrafters, and Disney and for over a decade helping small to medium-sized businesses and start-ups including Caribou Coffee and Ulubulu to bring their brands to life.

We work with clients of all sizes across a wide variety of industries. (So far this year we have partnered with a dentist, a national coffee chain, a screen printer, a photographer, interior designers, a national baby brand, a home builder, a start-up non-profit organization, a career coach, and a DEI consultant.) We love working with fellow entrepreneurial spirits and folks looking to make an impact in their categories and communities.

Our team is open and flexible, working remotely and in our studio in Edina. We’re committed to creating a welcoming place to work for everyone and believe diversity in identity, background, and thought breeds creativity and progress and leads to big, bold ideas. We like others who are curious and kind, optimistic and supportive, confident and opinionated. We don’t care how or when you get the job done, but that you’re proud of the work when it’s done.
