Device is a tight-knit group of creators and collaborators who offer clients a range of heart-pounding branding, packaging and interactive design. We are craftsmen and craftswomen who love what we do. We’re daring enough to pitch attention-grabbing ideas that may be out of your comfort zone and then prove we can design them, build them, print them and launch them. We never let fear get in the way of an amazing outcome.
Our clients run the gamut from B2B to B2C to WTF. We’ve conceptualized and crafted ideas for both start-ups and established companies - from art to ads, booze to books, and cuisine to couture.
"Our explosive growth and mass-market acceptance has been fueled by Device’s branding for Midnight Moon. Women think it’s cute, and men think it’s cool. It’s the packaged-goods equivalent of Johnny Depp, with universal appeal. That’s extraordinarily difficult to do.”

"I believe in creating a story without an obvious logo, stamp or motif. Cranford and Clodfelter can do this in the most out-of-the-box creative ways. How much do I respect their work? I asked them to rebrand my company. They are the most talented team out there.”

"Take everything you might expect from a spirits company and throw it out the window. Device Creative Collaborative has created a brand and packaging design for Sutler’s Spirit Co. that is striking and bold. They stand out in the crowd, embracing their visual differences that reflect the products they sell.”

"Device proved to be deeply insightful into both the demands of a difficult marketplace as well as the thematic subtext of the film itself, all while understanding our limitations. The resulting product--which included theatrical posters and promotional materials--was not only eye-catching: it exhibited an artistic sensibility and bespoke quality unique to limited-run printmaking. To this day, the aesthetic tone for the film continues to be a conversation starter.”

"The work of Shane Cranford and Ross Clodfelter is nuanced and deep, something a casual observer may not discern. But look closer: You will see combinations of scores, folds, die cuts, embossings, duplexes, varnishes, hand-lettered type and amusing copy tucked into the fine print on the back of a package or in the margins of a printed page. You see it on labels, cans, bottles, hangtags, invitations, box wrapping, corrugated shippers and apparel. You see it applied in 2-D, 3-D and online. These guys are media agnostic: if they can think it, they will make it and apply it to any media, especially print. The final product often looks too good to toss—you’ll want to put it on the shelf and admire it.”

When I asked Device Creative Collaborative to craft my new branding, I knew they would do an amazing job. But the final designs were more complex and beautiful than I could ever have imagined. The talent at Device pushes ordinary boundaries in order to produce unexpected, stunning visuals that represent successful business owners to a tee. How very proud I am to be among them!”
LYNN LEE / PRINCIPAL + CREATIVE DIRECTOR / LYNN LEE CANADIAN WEDDINGS
We reached out to Device after becoming frustrated with the direction most apartment branding was headed and asked them to help us differentiate our development projects. Device did just that and more. They created some truly beautiful designs that were unique and helped our property stand out in a crowded market place.
