Studio Hill Design has you covered… in wallpaper.

We wear a lot of hats around here. One of them is Interior Branding*. And one of our favorite elements of Interior Branding is the design of custom wallpaper. From floor to ceiling, we can create custom walls that tell your story.

From maximum impact to subtle nuance, our custom wall treatments make a powerful statement about your business. And beyond walls, we can expand your interior brand into your entire space, immersing all who enter in your unique culture. Our clients have found that letting us create their interiors has improved everything from their bottom line to their employees’ morale.

A first impression is everything. Maximize it.

*Interior Branding tells the story of your company’s brand culture. Your brand’s history, style and vision are illustrated using integrated graphic elements and interior design features. This creates a powerful brand experience for all who enter your space, from customers to employees.

Making Impressions In Santa Fe


 
Branding? Check. Graphic Design? Check. Illustration? Check! We recently delivered a thick stack of these 18×24 posters to The Oldest House Indian Shop in Santa Fe. Also known as The De Vargas Street House, the structure was built in 1646 and is considered one of the oldest in America. Our approach to the subject was to honor the history of the location as well as pay homage to traditional travel posters. Our feeling is that we have hit the mark for both travelers and locals. If you plan to visit Santa Fe, you can expect to come across this image soon. It is an instant classic destined for distribution in many forms. Get to Oldest House asap if you want one from the first printing.

“Albuquerque is an art-filled city, and street art is such an authentic reflection of our heart, soul and people. These pieces deserve our attention.”
