School House NYC

ABOUT SCHOOL HOUSESchool House is a New York based creative agency experienced in brand strategy, branding, and environment design with a focused interest in beauty, wellness, and lifestyle.OUR PHILOSOPHYIn an era where even people are brands, we are committed to un-branding. It’s not a dogma or a set of rules; it’s an interchange. We don’t believe in hierarchy, but in honesty, creativity, and partnership.
It’s impossible to fail when you seek to create because creation is starting with nothing and ending with something. If you appreciate that, and understand the hours put into it (because we know how long it takes), and love close quarters, healthy snacks and cannabis candles, you’ll ‘get’ working at School House, and we’d love to meet you.
If you think clients are something to be tolerated, please swipe left.
