The Company

We are an advertising and design studio, providing branding, advertising, websites and print collateral to growing brands and companies in the Americas. We work with clients from concept, testing and design to delivery, maintenance and promotion. All work is done by our team at the studio in Cincinnati in close collaboration with clients. 

Sund + Co was founded in 1998.

Located in the customer Science capital of the world

Cincinnati USA is known as the customer science capital of the world. Design and data walk hand-in-hand. If you're local, you'll get to meet us face-to-face and in person as needed. We have long-distance relationships too. Technology allows that – what a time to be alive.


Our studio is powered by 100% green energy. Electricity purchased from Cincinnati Bell Energy is 100% wind-generated, and our natural gas is carbon-neutral through offsets purchased from NativeEnergy.


We believe in the value of public education and public services. We donate time and talents to the Cincinnati Public Schools, one of our country's progressive urban school districts. We also donate time to the Historic Milford Association and volunteer for Word Camp Cincinnati. If you see us in the wild, say hi!

Quality over Quantity

Our clients' products, their services and their brands are very important to them. They're smaller growing companies, so we use a different strategy than for big companies. Large company experience is fine, but smaller, growing companies are fundamentally different.

We are great at working to create a brand but also working with an established brand respecting what / who you already are. We're creative, conscientious, and organized!

You'll work directly with us

There are no project managers to get in the way so project expectations are realistic!
