About

Revive Design Studios was started out of the desire to craft really beautiful & useful websites. It’s since grown to include app (iOS and Android) design and development and E-commerce websites.

Design for Problem Solving

We believe that great design is backed by problem-solving. So, when we get a request for work, we dig into the “why’s” of the request so we can really understand the issues behind the request. Once we understand the basis of the request, then we fuse that with our knowledge of how people use the web, apps, and interpret branding to produce a functional, attractive piece that’s maintainable and useful in the future.

“Giving something your time isn’t the same as giving it your attention.”
