At Balance, we practice what we preach. We dive deeply into understanding our client’s brand, the goals of the project, and people that will benefit from what we create. Armed with this understanding, we develop strategies to deliver on our promise of value-driven innovation. Our goal is to maximize the value of the experiences and things we create for all of those involved.

“It’s nearly impossible to imagine that we could have had the internal success, or industry presence, without the partnership we had with Balance. Many firms may be capable of helping with your projects, but few can truly partner with you to accomplish your goals, near- and long-term, like Balance.”
-Paul Magee, Former Director of Strategic Design at Diebold
"Balance Innovation and Design was able to help us achieve our project goals from start to finish. Providing excellent project management, design and technical expertise, and functioning as a team ensured that the design process went smoothly, stayed on track, and achieved the results we were after.”
-Rita Kamoutsis, Sherwin Williams
“We have found Balance’s input to be a crucial ingredient in our consumer product development process.

-David W. Krupinski, Kinetico
