About Capsule

Capsule has refused to adopt a descriptor since 1999. We’ve strategized for billion dollar industries and non profits, and conducted research for brands both local and global. We’ve given new faces to startups and facelifts to businesses over a century old. We’ve named everything from apples to office chairs. Rebranded schools and orchestras. Crafted experiences for grocery stores and Super Bowls. Our refusal to limit our work to one specific industry, combined with the satisfaction we find from solving problems that others won’t touch with ten foot poles, has earned us a long list of partners and an informative depth of experience in brand research, strategy and design over the last two decades. So if you asked us to describe Capsule in two words, we’d say, “What’s next?”

Sample clients we’ve grown with include Patagonia, Hydro Flask, Mattel, Minnesota Orchestra, Medtronic, Osprey, SmartWool, Red Wing Shoes, Yakima, Herman Miller, Caribou Coffee, PepsiCo and Curaleaf.
