Conceptual meets pragmatism. It’s a simple construct apt for New York-based indie Applied Design.
Over their 10 years, principals Brad Scott and Craig Dobie have learned that proper restraint leads to big things.
The result is stunningly profound work for the likes of the World Trade Center, the Shops at the Oculus, Grand Central, the Braille Institute and more.
Blending a mix of large and small agency experience—and genuine entrepreneurialism, Applied Design found balance while breaking down the barriers to design progress for brands.
We caught up with Brad and Craig to talk about their journey—and did a little nerding out on typography and Brand New.
