Our Mindful Design approach


Trischler Design Co. is energized by working with passionate people who are eager to grow and expand their ideas in innovative ways. We're thoughtful and thorough in our design approach— we employ these Mindful Design practices to arrive at new places of clarity and inspiration.


Design Discovery

We facilitate conversations with members of your team and community and collect visual/verbal examples from inside and outside your organization to assess themes and strengths essential to the direction of the project. 

Design Direction

We observe and experiment with insights gathered from Discovery to create a variety of potential strategies and themes.

Design Reveal

We craft and display a projected brand design solution through a designed collection of tools and materials useful to the project's newly unified voice.

Design Delivery

We deliver the finalized design, along with a no-nonsense standards guide that explains how to consistently and confidently share your new brand identity. There will likely be questions about your new assets after delivery, and our design process includes follow up inquiries and resolution of issues we should have accounted for related to delivered assets (within project scope of work) that come up as you start to implement your brand identity.


Our core attributes and qualities


We're Thoughtful.

We know the importance of the process behind an epiphany, so we pay attention to mindful ways of thinking and connecting ideas. Clarity is the result of prioritizing contemplative, rational, deliberate sources of information and inspiration. We attentively examine and explore the elements of you story.

We're Collaborative.

We're a team of diverse talents that knows how to work together. We share the collective mission, and celebrate the way each unique contribution merges with a cohesive goal. The result is a symbiotic, communal achievement: a blending of many voices into one.

We're Enthusiastic.

For us, it's about more than just doing a job— we're truly excited by the formation of a compelling message. We're energized by crafting and honing the raw materials of stories and ideas from passionate people into a singular, distinctive voice.

We're Resourceful.

We've got more ideas than we know what to do with— and we aren't afraid of using them, either. We've got clear vision, insight, and awareness in our tool chest. But our real secret weapon is found in our relational connectedness— we've put together a network of some of the best innovators out there.
