About Us

An Atlanta branding agency where creatives and brands grow together.

Reckon was founded in 2000 with the goal of creating an agency where creatives and brands could grow together. We built an environment where clients and designers engage directly, from beginning to end, without a middleperson. We believe this approach provides better creative solutions and partnerships.

A brand is more than a logo, it’s a living entity that requires continuous nurturing, grooming and management. Our goal isn’t to build a brand and hand it off; we design brands that are optimized for action and we activate those brands over years and decades.

Core Values

Good design is cost of entry. Collaboration and partnership is our key, and we pride ourselves on being nimble, providing thoughtful solutions and unearthing happy surprises. Our company culture and way of doing business starts with our core values.

BE HAPPY

Life always comes first. Happy and fulfilled people do the best work.

PLAY NICE

Treat others as you’d like to be treated. Be polite, respectful, and honest.

DO STUFF

Own it. Be a problem solver. Seek opportunities to make things better.

BE ENGAGED

Passion is supported and encouraged. All voices and perspectives are important.
