Iconic visuals, unique solutions, and memorable experiences.

The Department is an independent, full–service graphic design studio in San Francisco, California. Our name sounds large– but we’re actually small, agile, and proudly boutique. Our versatile creative approach spans several touchpoints resulting in unique solutions and memorable experiences. We work with individuals, architects, manufacturers, interior designers, artisans, creative agencies, restaurants, retail shops, nonprofits, startups and all groups that value comprehensive, tailor-made, visual solutions.

Founded by Richard Leighton, Creative Director & Designer.
