The heart of Swanson Studio's work is based on inspiration—that tickle in the brain that makes you want to keep creating over and over again.

The joy in our work comes from collaboration—the creation of something greater than what could be achieved alone, and the relationships built along the way.

We choose to work and function as a team—not only because there is strength in numbers, but because it's a lot more fun.

We celebrate the process of creation—layering ideas, resources, methods and energy to produce something new and exciting.

Our vision is the way that we approach imagery—the blend of experiences and personality that goes into how we view the world around us.
