Who is FoS and what do you do?
Founded in 2010 by Jennifer Blanco and John Earles, Field of Study (formerly Spindletop Design) is a brand and design consultancy.
We work with organizations to establish voice, mythologies, strategies, and assets that deliver on the brand promise. Brand strategy, logo and visual identity creation or refinement, brand systems, packaging, website design and development, signage, interior spaces, and environmental graphics are all areas in which we work.
Why work with us?
Because we help our clients succeed. Through smart branding and good design, we link organizations with their audience, help them tell their story, meet goals and objectives, and provide tangible value to their brand.
With our help, our clients have turned their ideas into solid and sustainable businesses that—in most cases—lead their respective market.
What is your process?
Our goals when working with a client are to establish strategies and tools that build engagement, communicate value to a target audience, and ultimately help accomplish clear objectives.
We do this through discussion, research, and strategic, intelligent thinking—a delicate balance between beauty and function. While visually attractive, the design solutions we create through this process first and foremost solve problems.
Who do you work with?
We consult with individuals, organizations, and business that are believers in the power of design and seek to create distinctive, smart, and engaging brand experiences around their products. Their understanding is paired with the resources—both financial and time—to achieve real success.
We do not accept speculative work. Learn what ‘spec’ work and industry standards are here.
How do I get started?
We ask that you email us your project details and needs. Additionally, you can provide more specific information such as what kind of project you have, when is best to meet, and more by clicking “By Appointment Only” at the top of this page or scrolling down and completing the form.
If we feel that we may be a good fit, we will respond in a timely manner and set up an appointment to discuss your project via phone or in person meeting.
How long will this take?
Generally, the creation of a brand can require anywhere from two to six months from project kick-off to receipt of production ready artwork. Websites, packaging, or signage and environmental graphics will extend the timeline based on the complexity of deliverables and scope of work.
Please keep in mind we provide a specialized, focused service in the hands of a small but highly capable staff. We are often booked several weeks in advance for new clients, so please take this into account when planning timelines.
Can my group visit or can you speak to my group?
Yes. We love to discuss design and what we do and when possible, are happy to take time out of our schedule to do so. Send us an email and let us know what you have in mind.
Are you hiring?
We’re always looking to meet and support new talent. If you are an avid researcher, thinker, learner, lover of all things design—send us an email with a resume, PDF or link to your portfolio, and a note on how you can make a contribution to our team.
