curio studio

Curio Studio is Edmonton’s most experienced Creative Services boutique, specializing in graphic design, illustration, and brand identity since 2002.

Over this time, we have honed our abilities in design and client service to deliver stunning graphic solutions, always on-time and in-line with your budget.

Our designers are all trained illustrators who work directly with our clients. We create custom concepts from scratch, then collaborate to refine those concepts, ensuring client goals are built into the DNA of the design.

The final results are always polished and professional, but imbued with remarkable character and personality. Though we specialize in illustration, branding, and digital design, we are constantly expanding our abilities into such areas as package design, copywriting, and animation.
