Brad Bartlett Design is a Los Angeles-based design practice.

We collaborate with arts institutions, artists, architects, museums, cultural institutions and private-sector companies, to create unique design experiences that resonate with individuals and communities who are working for the greater good. 

Our process is collaborative and research-driven. We combine time-honored craft with cutting-edge technology to develop design solutions across a variety of media. Our projects range from identity and brand development, to book and publication design, to web and digital media, to exhibition and environmental design.

We are four-time winners of the Frances Smyth-Ravenal Prize for Excellence in Publication Design (2012, 2015, 2018 and 2019). This grand prize is awarded annually by the American Alliance of Museums for the best publication designed by an art museum in the United States. Our studio has also been recognized by the Art Directors Club, Type Directors Club, AIGA 50 Books/50 Covers, Communication Arts, Dezeen, Graphis, HOW Magazine, I.D. Magazine, Print Magazine, Sappi Ideas That Matter, the American Center for Design and the University & College Designers Association, among others.
