Inspired by our love of the sun, sea, and summer.

We found our home designing for startups, nonprofits, NGOs, and the socially conscious.

Founded in 2012 in a small cottage in Santa Barbara, California, Wood + Sea Co. is a small creative studio now located in Denver, Colorado. Our hearts and passions have always been in the nonprofit world - from taking photographs in a small refugee camp on the outskirts of Kabul to developing handcrafted identities to stop human trafficking in Nepal.

We are made up of a husband and wife duo (and pup). Inspired by our love of the sun, sea, and summer.

The Process

--

01

Initial Phone Call

Let's get to know each other in a quick phone call. Be prepared to talk about what you do and what you'd like to accomplish. 

02

Proposal

We'll set up a brief estimate with a breakdown of services, pricing, and estimated timelines.  

03

We're In!

You sign - I sign. Let's get started! You'll receive a brief survey about design preferences.

04

Hands get Dirty

After we’ve discussed the results of the brief survey, we’ll jump in and get our hands dirty.

05

Revisions + Final Tweaks

With three rounds of revisions and a truly collaborative process, we make sure your project hits the mark.

06

Celebrate!

Sites are launched – identities are revealed. Now we celebrate!

What's in a Name

There's this little section of the beach where the cliffs rise from the sea in Santa Barbara - between East and Butterfly Beach. It's notorious for skinny dipping and it's also a spot where large pieces of drift wood have washed ashore. The place where wood meets the sea.
