Actual Size is a branding and digital design agency. Fully-immersed and detail-obsessed, we're always designing for what matters most. Your audience.

We design for people first, not web-crawlers

Sure, we understand keywords, alt tags and meta data. We also understand people, and that’s who we’re trying to reach. A photo won't connect with a search engine's childhood, and a particular color doesn’t make an algorithm feel happy. But effective design can emotionally connect with people to change perceptions, educate, and motivate action. And that is our job.

We love our work and we take it seriously. We try to not take ourselves too seriously. We collaborate. We measure twice and cut once. We manage your project transparently so we're always on the same page. We work for clients who care as much as we do.


Strategic. Creative. Technical.

We concentrate on communicating with your audience in the most effective way to achieve the outcome you need. Often, that is intertwined into a seamless experience that is invisible to the end user. However, we always consider the strategic, creative and technical implications of the decisions we make toward the end product. When all three are moving in the right direction, we have the best chance of connecting with the primary audience.

Strategic. Creative. Technical. Strategic. Creative. Technical.

We are proud to work with these incredible people.
