We’re not an ad agency

Original Thought was created with the needs of today’s startups & small agencies in mind. Scalability is our strong suit and allows us to work end to end with your startup idea or fill in gaps on your team which need sr. ux/uI design help or leadership.

We love a good story

Behind every great product is an even greater brand story. We believe brands should “show” their product’s benefits instead of “telling” them. We believe brands should be true to themselves when communicating it’s values to their customers. We believe we’re a pretty good bunch of visual storytellers ready to tell your brand’s story.

We love what we do

Our clients and us share one common desire: The desire to create digital products and experiences that people truly love and value. Taking on thought-provoking projects that challenge us creatively and make us go the extra mile is what we consider a way of life.
