Taptaps are colorful painted buses or pick-up trucks that serve as share taxis in Haiti. They are iconic symbols of Haitian popular art that often bear specific cultural references and messages that reflect the identity of their drivers. They bring strangers together in an overcrowded interior travelling to the background of blaring music.

Our branding process goes beyond creating a simple logo. We make sure that everything from the color palette, iconography, typography, and design style flows seamlessly between all visual platforms and accurately reflects an organization's unified vision. Whether we work on simple mediums such as business cards to complex website designs, our goal is to create an image that resonates with our clients on first glance and creates a lasting impact on their audiences..
We offer a wide range of web options, depending on your budget and needs. From template-based websites with affordable and fast turnarounds, to fully customized responsive sites built with pixel perfect precision, we always have a solution for you. Creating and maintaining a simple website should not feel like a daunting prospect, which is why we also offer basic in-person tutorials once your website is complete, so that you feel confident making minor updates along the way.
We specialize in product packaging, illustrations, poster design, and other related print material. We have really extensive knowledge in print solutions, and an existing relationship with some of the best print houses in the city. Our team takes care of everything from the initial planning and design to quality control in the final stages. We handle all the prep work, communication, and trouble-shooting when it comes to complex print materials so that you can rest assured that every step of the process is handled with precision and care.
"Patrice is my go-to person for all things website and design related. Over the last couple of years that I've been working with him, I've found him highly creative, efficient, responsive, professional and a pleasure to work with. I'm frankly relieved to have him as a resource."
Over the two and a half years that we have worked with Patrice, we have been exceedingly happy with the quality of his work and his professional approach to projects. Patrice transforms our ideas for leaflets, posters and promotional material into designs that are creative, eye-catching, and effective at communicating our message. I highly recommend Patrice to other organizations looking for thoughtful and engaging design work!
