AN INDEPENDENT BRAND DESIGN STUDIO SPECIALIZING IN VICE

Fried Design Company - AN INDEPENDENT BRAND DESIGN STUDIO SPECIALIZING IN VICE

We take our bourbon neat. Hot Chicken five stars. Amps overdriven. We prefer bonfires to fire pits Monster trucks over luxury coups. Our passions in life are the ones teachers said were a waste of time, our relatives didn’t understand, and the pastor, bless his heart, said would lead us to ruination.

We believe in working hard and playing harder. We believe in rock n’ roll. We believe the only path to a nice deep sleep is a hard day’s work and sometimes a hard day’s night. We believe in punching above our weight class. We believe in taking a blue-collar approach to the very cushy job we have of being lucky enough to draw cool stuff for even cooler people. We believe in setting goals, having a good plan, and basking in the glow of accomplishment.

We love clients who like to push buttons, get loud and have some fun doing it. We love to work. It’s what we do when we aren’t working.

Feel like we might be a good fit? Pull up a seat and pour a drink - let’s get started.

These people gave us money

Straight from the clients themselves.

"We hired Fried Design to take the branding of one of our most successful events and give it new life in terms of design and copywriting. It was a big success and helped us set a record for ticket sales and attendance."

Logan Aguirre

Publisher, 417 Magazine

"Working with the fine folks at Fried on a top-to-bottom rebrand has been a true pleasure. They've been consistently collaborative, patient, enthusiastic, and crucial in turning our gibberish into a reality. The entire team is professional, insightful, immensely talented, and good people to boot!"

Kyle Park

Director of Sales & Marketing, Neshaminy Creek Brewing co.

"I have worked with and seen Fried do multiple very high quality projects in the cannabis space. Can't think of anyone else I would even consider for cannabis branding and content work."

David Brodsky

Founding Partner, West Egg Cannabis Partners

"It was an absolute thrill to work with FDC on the branding for our new start-up business. They ooze with creativity and completely knocked it out of the park. Beyond that, they made us feel like our new little business was just as important and worth their time as bigger projects.  Highly, highly recommend this incredible group of creatives."

Cyndie Schmidt

Owner, shipwreck soda co.

"I will use Fried for any future projects I have. I absolutely recommend them for any of your design needs. They are such a great team to work with."

Mack Musgrave

Owner, Sandwich Scene.

"Fried brought our dreams to reality, and were instrumental to our newfound success. The more I look at the package, the more I’m drawn to it. Absolutely crushed it.”

Johnny E.

Owner, Heritage Smoke Co.
