We met working at a traditional ad agency where the combination of our skills and styles created some of the freshest, most meaningful work we’d ever done. Besides our crazy creative chemistry, we’d both had it with the ad scene. We were tired of the lack of women in creative leadership and old school office cultures, and realized that if we wanted better for women and young people in the industry, it was on us to do something about it. So we quit and started BlackPaint Studios.

Today, our team specializes in branding, art and design rooted in cultural intelligence and human connection. Some of that work is done for clients. Some of it's self-directed and centered around cultural commentary.

By limiting client projects to those we can devote our full time and talent to, we’re able to put our whole heart and soul into making the people, brands and causes we believe in look really good. We work best with brands that stand for something and aren't afraid to be loud about it. Learn more about our services and how we work here.
