Work that works. Why is it that we always love to complicate things, when simple always wins. When clarity communicates vision. And smart thinking is what makes a brand brilliant.

Why do we talk so much about missions and corporate culture and brand DNA when we could be out there making it happen, learning from our focused efforts and seeing what really sticks. Less is more is no longer an aesthetic decision, it’s a survival tool in this cluttered, sensory overloaded world we grow our businesses in.

M+ believes in work that works. Work that matters to both consumers and brand. Even if that value is a 5 second smile. That’s all you need to start a conversation. We also believe that working together with our clients lead to some of the greatest work we've ever made. Hence that little + in our name. 

M+NJ(L.A.)™ We would also like to introduce our “evil twin” sister, hot shop NJ(L.A.)™. Their daring approach to design spearheaded by Nicole Jacek has led to several successful experiments with clients like Nike, Adobe, GOOD Magazine, and NYU.
