About Capsule

Capsule has refused to adopt a descriptor since 1999. We’ve strategized for billion dollar industries and non profits. Conducted research for brands both local and global. We’ve given new faces to startups and facelifts to businesses over a century old. We’ve named everything from apples to office chairs. Rebranded schools and orchestras. Crafted experiences for grocery stores and Super Bowls. Our refusal to limit our work to one specific industry, combined with the satisfaction we find from solving problems that others won’t touch with 10-foot poles, has earned us a long list of partners and an informative depth of experience in brand research, strategy, and design over the last 20 years. So if you asked us to describe Capsule in two words, we’d say, “What’s next?” 

Clients we’ve grown with include Patagonia, Hydro Flask, Mattel, Minnesota Orchestra, Medtronic, Osprey Packs, SmartWool, Red Wing Shoes, Yakima, Herman Miller, Caribou Coffee, PepsiCo, and Arc’teryx.
