Studio/D launches new logo, branding

Jan. 20, 2016 – St. Louis-based marketing agency Studio/D has unveiled new branding following its recent merger with Swell Advertising. The updated branding reflects “the modern thinking this agency uses” in the process of working with clients, said Rich Meyer, chief creative officer at Studio/D. Meyer was the principal at Swell prior to the merger.

The branding overhaul includes a new logo, a new website (www.StudioD.agency), and a modification of the company name. The agency was formerly known as Studio D Marketing Communications.

“We wanted to create a look that is distinctive and memorable, but then gets out of the way,” Meyer said. “Our logo is now clean and straightforward, modern and yet understated.”

The website further carries out the theme. “We have a splash of orange that can be used in a way that is understated, as with the logo, or used as a bold block to energize negative space,” Meyer said.

Studio/D is a full-service brand communications agency based in St. Louis, Missouri. The agency offers ad planning and creative development, public relations, and social media engagement.

Jan. 15, 2016 – Studio/D, a full-service brand communications agency in St. Louis, has merged with Swell Advertising, an award-winning St. Louis creative firm. The combined agency has launched new branding which includes a new identity and website to reflect the firm’s expanded presence in the St. Louis regional advertising and public relations market.

Studio/D was previously known as Studio D Marketing Communications. The agency was started in 2013 by long-time advertising executive Scott Dieckgraefe, and primarily focuses on mid-sized business-to-business clients. Swell Advertising, established in 2004 by Rich Meyer, had a similar client base.

“The two agencies are a good match because of our similar philosophies and approach to client work,” Dieckgraefe said. “We partner with our clients to bring creative marketing solutions that will increase brand awareness and influence buying decisions of targeted audiences.”

Dieckgraefe and Meyer worked together at St. Louis-based Adamson Advertising in the 1990s. Dieckgraefe’s expertise lies in strategy, account management and media planning, while Meyer is a strategist and creative director.

“Rich brings to Studio/D a new level of expertise and creative energy that will benefit our clients and our success as an agency,” Dieckgraefe said. “Our new, combined firm makes us the go-to source for business-to-business marketing in St. Louis. Agencies that used to address this market in St. Louis have faded away in the last decade.”

Meyer says the firm brings “big ad agency experience, but with a lean, more agile environment where clients will find their budgets working harder, going further, and getting better results.”

Studio/D provides strategy development, account planning, advertising, public relations, media and research. The agency has capitalized billings of $4 million.
