Our Story

Upstatement officially opened our doors in 2008, but it was truly born during late nights at the Syracuse University student newspaper. That’s where founders Mike, Jared, and Tito met before graduating to the newsrooms of The New York Times and Boston Globe. All that time working in the media taught us a thing or two. Like how to tell stories, organize information, and make complex stuff easy to understand — experiences that continue to guide us.

We don’t come from a typical agency background, so Upstatement doesn’t look like your typical studio. Our team is filled with curious, versatile designers and engineers who all do a little bit of everything: Designers develop. Engineers write. Everyone contributes to creative concepts (the best work comes from diverse teams). That’s why nothing we do is cookie cutter. We dream big, look for fresh challenges, and push ourselves to make cool new shit.

That ethos has propelled us since the early days of the studio. Back then, we developed a new website for our old employers, The Boston Globe. It was groundbreaking work that proved responsive design could succeed at scale. These days, we provide design leadership for a diverse client list: Publishers, products, non-profits, and the world’s most remarkable brands. All unified by strong stories and the desire to make a positive impact.
