Design Without Borders

New Yorkers. Musicians. Scotsmen. Skateboarders. Aussies. Perfumers. Gardeners. Hailing from near and far, we bring a world of interests and experiences under one roof. No matter where we’re from, or what makes us tick, we’re united by the belief that good design can contribute to a more intelligent, optimistic world.

To the Hills

Each summer, we retreat to the hills of upstate New York for a few days of digital detox with friends and family at the Graham & Co, an Athletics hospitality venture.

Outside In

We believe that pursuits outside the studio benefit the work we do inside. From paper-marbling to magazine writing, the insights we accrue through our independent interests are circulated throughout the studio, and channeled back to our clients.

Miscellaneous is a no-frills round-up of the cultural items that inspire us each month. Canvassing the Athletics team for timely exhibits, concerts, experiences, reading material, and music, we make available the media that moves us on a monthly basis.
