Noise w/o Sound design studio operates from a former speakeasy in Seattle’s urban-industrial South Park neighborhood, just one block from the Duwamish River. We contract with hand-picked photographers, writers, web developers, printers, and subject experts throughout the Puget Sound area.

With 10 years under our belt, Noise w/o Sound has designed brands and promotions for the real estate market, the non-profit sector, neighborhood revitalization efforts, and food justice campaigns. We are enthusiastic and craft attention-grabbing experiences, develop brand strategies, design for print and web, and have created educational interpretive signage.

services

Our design services include: ad campaigns, branding, packaging, environmental graphics, print and web work. We're also pretty darn good at naming and renaming businesses.

Reaching your audience doesn’t have to be complicated, it just needs to be genuine and on target. And we will go the extra mile to make sure it does. We love spending our days dreaming up cow-naming contests, and shapes for 500-pound piñatas. Noise w/o Sound offers clients another way to look at meeting your needs.

Kathi ‘george’ Wheeler

Owner, Designer, and Creative Genius

Kathi (also known as george) was obviously born with a love for advertising and design. Unlike other three-year-olds who ate their Cheerios, young george used breakfast time to thoughtfully redesign the Cheerios box (probably while singing along with TV jingles). george finished college early, then began her career designing advertisements and promotions for local newspapers (eventually landing at The Seattle Times), a print shop, an ad agency, while also freelancing for other Northwest businesses.

In 2006 george opened Noise w/o Sound in Seattle. With her hand-picked creative cohorts george supports projects that benefit her communities and morals. She designs mostly for the non-profit sector, neighborhood revitalization efforts, and food justice campaigns.

When george isn’t at the computer you’ll find her kayaking Seattle’s Duwamish River, camping with her wife and dog, conducting kitchen experiments, in New Mexico, or chatting up neighbors on the sidewalk.
