Style is a simple way of saying complex things.

To put it less concisely, at Turnstyle, we think of “style” as the considered application of aesthetics to communicate powerful ideas. And that's what we're all about—using design to help clients resonate with their audiences. We're not interested in style for its own sake, or as ornament applied after an idea has already been defined. Rather, it is an integral and strategic component of every project, and at its best, it captures that magical something about a company or product—something unique and memorable that pulls people in and connects on a visceral level. Whatever your feelings about style, its application in the design process is inevitable. We embrace it. We harness its power to cut to the chase.

Our Place at Kolstrand

Turnstyle's Seattle offices were designed by Graham Baba Architects. The building is over 100 years old and was formerly home to the eponymous marine hardware manufacturer.

A large mural on the central wall of the studio features the top half of a two-story advertising mural for "L. Karn Groceries, Dealer in Staple & Fancy," which is where the renowned Ethan Stowell Restaurant downstairs got its name.
