Design for People

Open works with companies, organizations, and people who want to make things better.

Scott Stowell started Open in New York City in 1998. We’ve been delivering everything from strategy and concept development to advertising, editorial, environmental, identity, information, and motion design ever since.

Grafik magazine: “Above all, Open aspires to create work that answers questions the clients don’t even know how to ask.”

What is Open?

We create rewarding
experiences for people who
look, read, and think.

We’re a design studio that builds identities for organizations with something to say.

   We’re a consulting firm that tells stories in ways that surprise, engage, and inform.

   We’re an editorial team that crafts distinctive voices for the page and the screen.

   We’re an ad agency that delivers campaigns that prompt new connections.

   We’re a production company that makes (short) movies with focus, humor, and style.

   We’re a task force that improves places by making them more accessible and fun.

   We’re a think tank that comes up with ideas even when nobody asked us to.

   We’re a group of people working together to make things better.
