01 //Services

Faucethead is a full service design studio. Whether you are looking for strategic guidance prior to embarking on a big project, a new Wordpress-based website, a book cover design or even a presentation on the importance of consistent branding and customer experience - we can help. While we aim to please, in order to maintain a focused approach to our clients there are a few things that we don’t do. Here is our main menu. Stay tuned here or contact us for case studies and project samples.

  • Consultation, guidance, and help with/making tough decisions
  • Brand strategy, campaign planning, and project development
  • Identity and brand creation, curation, and rejuvenation
  • Website design, development, and maintenance
  • E-mail campaign design and production
  • Print and digital ad campaign strategy and design

02 //Studio

We are everywhere. Well not exactly, but kind of. The original studio started in Chicago over 15 years ago. Now we work virtually with primary bases in Chicago, San Francisco and Minneapolis. But you can also find us on the road visiting our clients, blogging, snapping photos, tweeting, pinning, posting to Facebook, and swapping stories at our favorite watering holes throughout the U.S.


Chris Hoffman // Creative Director
Whether it’s building a new identity, resuscitating an existing brand, solving friction in usability or finding a way to balance white space with [too much] content, Chris welcomes the challenge. With over 25 years of experience [not that he’s counting...], his expertise and creative approach address head-on the issues that haunt many clients. Chris’ appetite for finding unique, achievable, and effective solutions for clients and his large cup of java are what draw him to the studio each morning
