Curio is a graphic design studio located in Edmonton, Canada.
Curio Studio has built its reputation on personalized service and consistently clever graphic design: we began in 2002, as Woodward Design, doing work that is honest, authentic and focused on the client’s needs, no matter the size of the job. Through more than a decade in business and a 2015 rebrand, our values haven’t changed.
Curio believes that clients get the best possible work speaking directly to the designer, instead of a project manager. We believe that by taking the time to understand a client’s specific needs, we can craft concepts and solutions that best serve your business or organization. Curio operates with passion and a commitment to producing interesting, memorable work every time.
Curio specializes in graphic design, print design, logos, branding and illustration. We have worked for clients from the arts, business and public sectors including the Alberta Dental Association and College, Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute, Edmonton Economic Development Corporation, University of Alberta and many others.
