    For Office Use Only: Johnson Trading Gallery

Big design for big institutions from NY studio For Office Use Only

Posted by James Cartwright,

New York design studio For Office Use Only are right at the top of the design food chain. They’re BIG. Working across print, branding and digital development they’ve produced work for more or less every big business client you can name, from MTV and the Art Director’s Club to Microsoft and Volvo. So what is it that makes them the go-to guys for clients with impressive budgets?

Well, for a start they’re very good at what they do, their visual communication does just that; it communicates, clearly and effectively and in the most stylish way possible. Secondly they’ve got a grip on the digital world and all the code and script that goes with it. It’s all well and good knowing good layout, but if you can’t translate that layout onto desktops, laptops and tablets then you’re in big trouble. Thirdly, they have their own branded stationery and if that doesn’t convince you that these guys mean business then who knows what will.
