For Office Use Only was founded in 2001 and is based in Manhattan’s Chinatown. We design and develop branding, websites and printed matter for arts, culture, architecture, and design clients.

Technologically, we transform complex project requirements into flexible systems that facilitate workflow, commerce, and brand communication. Creatively, we embrace simplicity, nuance, and a thoughtful interpretation of content and context. We help organizations articulate their vision and execute design experiences unique to each client.
