The Story


A Progressive Approach Toward Style and Visual Language.

The North State Design Studio practices design with a progressive approach to visual language in a variety of mediums. Founding partner Mike Sakoonserksadee has gained

experience through the largest of international digital agencies and has created award-winning, interactive and logo designs.

The North State Design Studio originally launched in 2008 as a joint creative effort of two small, upstart consultancies (M15 Media Design & Stafford.Tisdale Creative). Early work primarily served clients with screen-based design needs, but the team's skill and talent paved the way for successful print and branding campaigns.

From the Grammy-winning band The Shins to the Smithsonian Archives of American Art, the studio has created compelling campaigns

and designs in a variety of industries, including arts & entertainment, restaurant, retail, technology, and professional services.

For 4 years, the studio was based in Charlotte, NC. Today, The North State continues to thrive in sunny Austin, Texas. This amazingly creative and lively city serves as a fitting home to the studio – a collaboration for new design styles, creative uses of technology, and visual stories that set brands apart.

The North State continues to serve as a knowlegable partner, educating clients about the effect that thoughtful design can have on their successful branding efforts.
