Founded in 2009 by three women, we’ve since evolved into an international design firm with expertise on everything from accessibility to culturally informed projects.
We also know firsthand the communication challenges Indigenous communities face and how you can use design to make your message relevant, authentic, and informed.
Design de Plume?
We took the familiar French expression for pen name (nom de plume) and gave it a design twist. Our name is a nod to our bilingual heritage, while the word plume (feather) recognizes our Indigenous ancestry.
A braided partnership
Like braided sweetgrass, our leadership team is three individual women who have come together to make each other stronger. This creates a balanced skillset of thought leadership, strategy, and creative direction, interwoven with our Indigenous, francophone, and queer backgrounds.
