Splinter is an independent brand studio in Tempe, Arizona specializing in identity, print and web. We strive to make the complicated simple and create purposeful experiences that have permanence. Intentionally, we are not an agency that’s everything to everyone, which means we have a lot of time to focus on honing our craft. We’re big picture people who’ve set out to change the world in which we live and work – and we believe that’s an achievable goal. We enjoy working hard, working smart and working together. And we want the work we do to create better relationships, better business and better lives for everyone involved.
The strength of our company lies at the intersection of art and commerce. We are small, but mighty. What defines us at Splinter is a strong affinity to be human. We’re people people. We consider ourselves true artisans, producing stand-out work that differentiates our clients. At Splinter, we want to do great work; work that has purpose, work that cannot be ignored. This is a matter of personal pride for us. We want the work we do to create better relationships, better business and better lives for everyone involved.
