The Pair: a designer and a writer.



Every project begins with an initial questionnaire that allows us to develop a shared language and encapsulates the unique tensions within your brand. By diving deep and defining every aspect in the beginning stages, we will equip you with the clarity of vision and consistency of visuals that will grow with you for years to come. 

With a combined 14 years of experience working in the fast-paced environment of New York City design, we've learned how to excel in any situation, no matter the circumstances. We believe in a high-touch, client forward approach, with close and effective communication resulting in bespoke solutions.

FROM OUR clients...

“I cannot rave enough about Martha and Nat. I was starting a new design company and needed my brand to feel fresh and bright, but unique. They spent a considerable amount of time really getting to the core of my vision. I had a lot of fun with their questionnaire and all our initial branding discussions. Once we landed on my aesthetic and tone, the collateral was next level!

If you want to have a brand that not only is stand out, unique but really represents your vision, than Mainland Studio is where its at. I get stopped ALL THE TIME by people that love my logo. My logo on a car magnet brought me my biggest client to date! I HIGHLY recommend them!”

- Jamie Lyn Smith

“Mainland Studio guided me through an incredibly intimidating and overwhelming process with the utmost grace, patience and support. They worked with me at every level to create the best version of what I wanted, tackling any hurdles with elegance and ease. Their attention to detail and creativity is unrivaled! Martha and Nat helped make my dreams a reality and I am forever grateful for their hard work. (They also laughed at all my bad jokes). Kudos to these guys, they’re the real deal!”

- Mary Ellen Amato, Rita

“Everything Mainland Studio touches feels both sophisticated and unassuming, while also being easy-to-use, clear and simple to navigate on the web — a perfect combination of characteristics for a modern brand, especially in a luxury space.”

-Isabel Foxen Duke  

“Martha used her font wizardry to craft something elegant, that nods to the past while staying current. I couldn't be more excited about the result! The yellow keeps it playful, while that gold is all business. Love!”
