We specialize in developing early-stage brands with unique positioning strategies and comprehensive design systems. We work intentionally and fast (in that order).

Our Approach

Entrepreneurial at Heart

Before we can start making things on your behalf, we want to understand your goals as clearly as possible. Many of us are entrepreneurs ourselves, and we wholeheartedly believe in the role of a smart strategy in guiding the work we create. We'll ask some questions, you can ask some questions, and then we're off and running.

Iterative in Creation

We're going to show you a broad spectrum of stuff, from mild to wild. We’re all about direction and action, getting smart fast, quickly developing an initial hypothesis, stress-testing, and iterating to get to the right solution.

Thorough with delivery

After we've landed on a creative decision, we'll set guiding principles and create functional assets. We’ll work alongside your marketing leaders, social media managers, product designers, manufacturers, and retail partners to launch important physical or digital touchpoints.

Brand
team of 6+

Yung Studio was founded by Melody Yung. Now, we've grown to a core of 6 with a broad range of capabilities, plus help from seasonal freelancers. We have no hierarchy and everyone is IC. Pretty radical.

Kind Words

  • Yung Studio is an incredible design partner. Over the last 3 years, we've worked together on various projects and I'm always impressed by the way Melody breaks down a problem and brings a completely fresh feel to everything she and her team design. Aside from being a design superhero, she's speedy, reliable, and flexible — which is exactly what we need as an early-stage company.
