Selman Design was formed in the winter of 2013 by Johnny Selman. We’re a team of designers and producers who work with a wide range of clients to create comprehensive identity systems, develop brand strategies, and design packaging, exhibits, experiences, books, websites, commercials, advertisements and applications. Our work has been recognized for excellence in visual communication, illustration and typography.

We work in a very fast-paced environment and excel with extremely quick deadlines, revisions, and deliveries — all without compromising the quality of our work. We take a holistic approach to identity design and look at the brand’s identity as a system. It’s not just the logo and core elements, it’s the world in which it lives. This helps give our clients a future outlook of where they can expect their brand to be in 5 to 10 years.
