Who we are: Founded in 1991, Sandra McHenry Design is a San Francisco-based graphic design firm, specializing in creating design that builds iconic brands. Our work encompasses everything from catalogs, books, magazines and packaging to direct mail, identity, and editorial design.


How we work: We look at every assignment as a partnership with our clients. An important aspect of this collaboration is reaching a clear understanding of the problem our client is trying to solve, clarifying objectives, setting deadlines and delivering desired results. This often involves writing a design brief for a new brand concept or to revitalize an existing brand for stronger market positioning. We have the skill and the flexibility to accommodate different levels of need. We have the capability to act as a full-service agency. We also are frequently called upon to design and produce a startup catalog or magazine, develop graphic guidelines, and then transition the work to the inhouse production team.


Our performance: Over the years, our studio has won numerous national and regional design awards, including recognition from Catalog Age. Sandra McHenry, who previously was a senior designer at Pentagram, has served on the board of the San Francisco Chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts and juried design competitions for such groups as the Western Art Directors Club and the International Association of Business Communicators Gold Quill Awards.


Our commitment: We believe in showing integrity in all our relationships with clients and suppliers, and delivering excellence in all aspects of our work.
