For our weekly series where we feature design studios, we research and analyze the work of the potential Monday stars for days. Our goal is to bring into your attention the best companies from all over the world. Today, we are shedding the light on a boutique graphic design studio that convinced us of their talent. Sheila Buchanan Designs specializes in giving your brand an image, and we specialize in highlighting good works.
Based in Los Angeles, Sheila Buchanan is a graphic design studio led by, well… Sheila Buchanan. Sheila has dedicated her past 18+ years to creating amazing designs. Her work includes everything from logos, to packaging, websites, restaurant menus, stationary designs, and the list goes on. Although she owns a Bachelor in Fine Arts, she couldn’t have come this far without a hint of natural talent. Due to her great abilities, she works with chefs from well-known restaurants, such as Jeremy Fox from Rustic Canyon, Tallula’s, On Vegetables, Zoe Nathan from Huckleberry, Tallula’s, Rustic Canyon, Arnold Eric Wong from Eos, Bacar, The Treasury, The Beehive, Kathy Wiley from Poco Dolce and Bryan Ng from The Spice Table, Cassia.
A strong, memorable and well-orchestrated brand identity
gives you the credit and recognition your business deserves.
“A strong brand is more than just a sum of its parts,” believes Sheila. One of the clients come across when creating a brand is that it come in pieces.
