Tiny Rebels is a small but mighty branding shop with big talent and lots of heart. Tiny Rebels is dedicated to creating distinct brands that make a ruckus. The rebels carefully and strategically create and curate brands through product design, identity design, art direction and production. Our clients are our allies, our partners. Tiny Rebels discovers, appreciates and highlights their client’s differences. They don’t follow any conventions and treat all projects as a unique problem to solve. Together they build brands that provide unique experiences and make people think differently about the world. Their range of clients includes, but not limited to the following industries: design, healthcare, retail, entertainment and hospitality. Since 2012 we’ve been successfully launching brands into the world.
Although the rebels joined forces in New York, the heart and soul of the company was built on strong midwestern values and lots of that midwestern charm. Their name might be intimidating, but they’re pretty nice.

This Frenchie loves NYC. You might catch her walking through the city with friends, exploring a museum or enjoying a good espresso in a café. So French, I know. From Paris to Madrid, to New York, her curiosity sent her traveling to different cities. We are thankful she is in Brooklyn with us. She is fond of elegant typography compositions and can pass hours making a ton of minimalist icons.
