Naming. Logos. Packaging. Online & Retail.

We are brand identity designers and we help build brands. Banding X Context (BXC Inc.) is a visual branding identity and graphic design studio for niche brands who want to connect, inspire, sell and grow. Since 2005 we've had the opportunity to work for some very successful and unique brands. Which only seems natural since the lifestyle that surrounds them runs through our veins.

Design Strategy is our thing.

By examining your brand's culture (products, competition, channels, services, and data) we uncover new opportunities to engage and inspire your customer. Our methodical approach to crafting a strategic DNA and design identity enhances sales and revitalizes your brand. A well-planned design system ignites enthusiasm and yields smarter products, empowering your sales team, retailers, and brand ambassadors with a compelling brand narrative.
Take advantage of our 20+ years of experience and our little black-book of industry cohorts.
