Started from the bottom, now we're here.
Departure Design Studio is the working studio of Art Simmons, a seasoned art director and graphic designer. Taking knowledge from an extensive resume of well-established ad agencies and design shops, Art opened Departure in 2017 with the hopes he could apply all he has learned to the kind of work he likes to do. While Departure works with a wide range of clients from all kinds of industries, there's always one goal in mind: Helping clients to build a brand that's sure to take off.
