Skidmore Studio is a boutique creative studio located in the heart of downtown Detroit. We help food & fun companies with brand strategy and design.

Our studio was founded by Leo Skidmore way back in 1959. In those days, we were a world-class illustration studio for the Big Three, plus major brands like McDonald’s and Ski-Doo. We’re proud of our roots and proud to maintain a longstanding tradition of extraordinary creative work.

These days, we thrive on capturing brand stories and helping food & fun companies get to the next level. Whether you want to increase sales or improve your customer experience, we know how to get folks excited – like, really excited – about your brand. Our team will tackle your project with boatloads of energy, playfulness, and a human-centered approach.
