Cut Once is a multidisciplinary design practice with award-winning expertise in higher education, arts and culture, health, retail and community. We invest in deep, strategic relationships with organizations who value a fresh perspective and are seeking to become more meaningful and beneficial to their audiences.
Our approach is unique among design firms. Rather than taking a cookie cutter approach, we listen and learn about you, your staff, and your marketing needs. There are no rules, templates or shortcuts. We rely on extensive experience to develop strategies and produce work that is distinctive, memorable and effective for our clients.
True to the proverb that inspired our name — measure twice, cut once — we believe successful outcomes are a result of thinking ahead. We are committed to getting it right the first time.
