About Us

"I have been working with Seth and his team for nearly a decade. They are my go to for all design work and have done the branding for three businesses and will continue to do any work we have. Finding a good designer is like finding a good mechanic or lawyer — you end up working with them periodically for years. It's so helpful to find one that you vibe with aesthetically and personally and trust to have your best interest in mind. Design work is an investment, Precious insures you get a return on that investment."

Nate Stone
Founder, Cathedral

"It's actually hard to describe how professional, kind, incredible and smooth the process of working with Precious (and Seth) was. From beginning to end, from idea to revisions to final product, there is no better process you can run with a design firm."

Patrick Dodd
Telephone Friends

"The team at Precious has helped me bring my brand to life every step of the way. I have worked with these fine folks for over a year now and plan to continue my working relationship for the foreseeable future. All work is done with the upmost diligence and consideration to perfectly execute the vision every time. Highly recommend their services for all branding needs."

Zoe Zelinsky
Owner / Creative Director, 8th Court Jewelry

"Precious design studio is unlike any other. They provide top tier service from the very beginning at discovery to the end with incredible designs. Use Precious for your next design needs!"

Paige Lehmann
Director of Advisor Success, Signal Advisors

"Built a great relationship with Seth and his ever-changing team at Precious. Love watching their stable grow. I trust them to keep cranking cool & timeless or hip & trendy, whatever you may be looking for."

Garrett Cornelison
Owner, The Dust Collective

"I've worked with Precious in multiple capacities: both as a renter of their co-working space (affordable, well-designed, easy parking, above one of the best coffee shops in Des Moines, lots of interesting fellow creatives to keep me connected, etc.) and as a client of theirs. Seth and the team are highly collaborative, trustworthy, detail-oriented, and fun to work with—a rarity in the creative space that makes all the difference in the success of a final product. I have hired them (and will continue to) again and again and would recommend them for branding work and beyond."

Hannah Gilman
Creative Director, Belief Agency

"I've hired Precious multiple times as a project manager for many different types of projects and clients. I would (and will!) hire them again. There are many compliments I could give about Seth, leader of the studio; the biggest that comes to mind is his trustworthiness and consistency. Partnering with Precious has always been a win for our agency. They have the ability to flex in to work large or small, and create work that is of the highest quality, and meticulously QA'd, guaranteeing happy clients. Oh - and I had a chance to check out the space in Des Moines - it's sleek clean and full of positive energy!"

Lucinda Allen
Director, Projects at Belief Agency

"Seth and Liv at Precious have been indispensable in my web and branding needs. As a small business owner, who can't always clearly define what my creative needs are, they have a way of understanding and interpreting them while exceeding my expectations. They are fast, professional and fair in pricing. I can't recommend them enough."

Christian Coffey
Tour Director, Coffey Black

"We hired Precious to rebrand our existing business. Their team delivered a final brand that exceeded my expectations! They were efficient and professional and their work is stunning!"

Meadow Tarves
Owner, Youthbar

"Precious made it possible for us to re-imagine what our new site could be as we worked through an entire rebrand for the ranch. They walked us through the design of the site and continue to work with us as we create new merchandise to offer our guests. I can't thank Precious enough and can't imagine ever working with anyone else."

J.D. Alex
Ranch Operations & Events Manager, Long Hollow Ranch

"We spent years searching for the right agency to help us update our logo. Not only did Precious deliver us with a sleek and modern logo – we entirely rebranded with a new website and social media accounts. As a manufacturing company that has been in business for 35 years it was a big risk, but because of this we’ve been able to showcase our work and connect with people through channels we’ve never been able to before. We are so grateful for the Precious team for their care and thoughtfulness through this entire project!"

Sami Herman
Director of Marketing, Herman Mold + Tooling, Inc

"Working with Precious helped us translate our values and culture as a festival into a visual identity that told our story. Our festival is all the better for working with them."

Mickey Davis
Festival Director, 80/35 Music Festival

"There are lots of talented design studios out there, but Precious took the time to really find the core reason and belief behind our business. The thought and detail that went into their design created a beautiful, unique and truly authentic brand. The process was timely, smooth and fun – we couldn’t be happier!"

Luann Gilman
Owner/Partner, the Drift

"Precious was amazing to work with from start to finish. They listened to my ideas, asked questions about what I wanted to accomplish, and was sure to have a full grasp on the vision I was working towards before they got to work. They quickly delivered designs & all types of promotional materials I was looking for. I can’t say enough positive things about the experience!"

Madison Jewelinski
Owner/Designer, Laissez Faire

"I was referred to Precious by a good friend and I had so much hesitation because when it came to my dream brand, I knew exactly what I wanted but had no clue what it would look like. They literally brought my vision to life in a way I never thought was possible. I flip through the files every now and then just to be reminded of the simple beauties of what was created."

Zack Hollier
Owner, Cajun Belle

"I can’t say enough about Precious. The work is always smart, thoughtful and pushes us further than we could on our own. Whether it’s strategy or design, I will always recommend them first. Over and over."
