    VSM Studio is a design and visual communication studio working on the intersection between brand design and branded spaces. We fuse design and architecture to create experiences where brands emerge into consciousness. We believe in creating experiences that are every interaction between a brand and the individual: the indelible image, the pop-up experience, that spark of a moment when a company’s worldview and a single person’s identity fall in line.
