Our Brand Heritage

GIRVIN was founded as a design practice in 1973 by Tim Girvin. It is one of the longest-running, privately-held, continuously operating brand strategy and design firms in North America.

We started in retail—in built environments, branding and shopfront design, and sign painting—which evolved into identity work, motion picture and theatrical branding, packaging, and beyond, for clients around the world.

We expanded our strategic design practice to operate as a multi-talented boutique agency with expertise and real experience in beauty, hospitality marketing, food and beverages, gaming and entertainment, restaurant branding and interiors, technology, fashion, and retail.
