about us


working with you


At schmidt de donno we believe that authentic communication is effective communication. We are efficient problem-solvers who get to the root of the challenge quickly and create custom results that stand out.

Our outcome-oriented process is tailored to your needs: like a sparring partner, we work iteratively with you and your team to create beautiful work that your customers will love, no matter whether it’s a website, newsletter, print catalogue or conceptual work. And while we love good design, what we find most rewarding are the long-term relationships we have been able to cultivate with our clients.
