who we are and what we believe
Farmhouse Design Studio was founded by principals Ellie and Gary
Bannister. They've never had second thoughts about being artists and
designers. It's who they are, really, and what they enjoy doing. The
driving force behind their company has consistently been a desire
to create, and have fun while doing it.
At Farmhouse Design, we believe in thinking big and taking small steps
to get there. We care about the details. We're intrigued by the possibilities.
We don't pretend to have all the answers, but we believe solid design
can make a difference, has the power to communicate, inspire emotion,
and transform the world around us. And we believe good design can help
others achieve success, which is rewarding in itself.
Each principal of Farmhouse Design Studio has over 20 years experience
in graphic design and marketing communications. With that experience
comes a core belief in the importance of forming lasting relationships
with our clients. In our studio, quality of work is kept in check by
quality control. We are streamlined to remain nimble, keeping our
clients to a minimum, and only taking on projects that will be both
challenging and rewarding. Understanding a client's brand, product and
story is essential in our process. And ultimately, we hope our work
resonates that through solid design with a unique voice.
We have been recognized with awards from the Type Directors Club,
Communication Arts, American Center for Design, American Institute of
Graphic Arts, the Art Directors Club, and Print Magazine's Regional
how we give back
Here at the studio, we believe that we get out of life what we put into
it. Generosity, integrity and honesty in business and in life rewards
us with grace and success, and we feel it is a privilege to
give back to our community. We enjoy donating design, materials, and
our time to local schools, non-profit events and fundraisers, local and
global. And above all, we are committed to preserving our environment
through eco-friendly practices, hopefully resulting in a lighter
ecological footprint, and a healthier and more productive place to work
