We are a small creative team from Ottawa that helps businesses share their stories through design. We love ideas that taste good.

More about Salt.

Salt is a multidisciplinary design studio focused on art direction and branding. Our mission is to help people tell their stories and create experiences that engage their customers.

We work on a range of media. We like to get our hands dirty and learn new things. Each project is a chance to explore and collaborate: between us, and with you. Have an idea for a project? Let's meet. The first coffee is always on us.

Hire us.
