About Studio Alto | Brand Design Agency in Melbourne


Clear thinking, straight-talking, fast moving. Your team.

We believe

Brands are nothing without thriving, engaged communities.

Truth and authenticity is the foundation of successful brands.

Strategy is nothing without execution.

Co-design creates better outcomes through engagement, participation and knowledge sharing.

In engaging communities, not targeting audiences.

In speaking to mindsets, not broadcasting to demographics.

In humans at the centre of our decision making.

In the design process – design thinking – to diagnose problems and develop solutions.

In being good humans.

We are
