color consulting

Every true artist has been inspired more by the beauty of lines and color and the relationships between them than by the concrete subject of the picture. —Piet Modrian

Furniture design

Furniture design is a collaborative, detail-intensive process. Envisioning the big picture, colors, proportions, material, and then nailing down the details of construction with the craftsmen are all aspects. From a standalone piece of furniture to a fully integrated partition wall or shelving system, the outcome of custom furniture varies widely—but is always a pleasing and exciting accomplishment and addition to a space. 

visual identity & Branding

S. Baird Design offers consultation in commercial branding and visual identity. What is the look and message you want your commercial space to communicate to your customers? Consultation can help to ensure that your visual communication and identity is cohesive within your brand.
