T. Koppel
Design, Inc.

T. Koppel Design features work that spans as much as twenty years. That’s a long time and a lot of art. As you can see above, we’ve branded ourselves in 12 different ways (and counting). Obsessive? Perhaps. But a versatile array of cohesive logos defines our studio and illustrates what we have to offer better than any single image or description. Like any successful design firm, we keep the client in mind. The question is: is the work unique? Does it merely stand out or is it memorable? We believe that it’s what we do with the client in mind that sets us apart. With continuity and character, we deliver consummate print and digital publications, packaging and identities. We have exceptionally high standards and we work really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, hard. (And we have a sense of humor about it.) We love problem solving and we take pride not only in our work, but also in the success we bring to our clients.

Blaise Allysen Kearsley, Consultant

Blaise is a copy consultant for T. Koppel Design. She is a writer, performer, and a sometime photographer, as well as the creator, producer, and host of The How I Learned Series, a live storytelling/reading/comedy show in New York City. Between her writing and photography, she has been published in The Nervous Breakdown, VICE, The Morning News, Gawker, Gothamist, New York Magazine, Playbill, an-mag, two anthologies, and several other places that are perhaps not worth mentioning by name. Once, she was awarded a month-long writing fellowship in Vermont where she got electrocuted and maybe almost killed a horse.

Sebit Min, Consultant

Sebit is a graphic designer based in Brooklyn. She received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts where she graduated with honors and received the Rhodes Family Award.

Her internship and freelance experience includes stints at Portland Art Museum, Portland Monthly Magazine, and Nouvaux. Sebit is the founder and designer of i’mazine, a series of cultural zines. She can usually be found trying to slip out of the studio whenever Terry starts telling one of his “when I was designing in the ‘80s...” stories.

He studied painting at the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Frankfurt and later received his Masters in Typography and Design in Arnhem, The Netherlands.
