When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you’re life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.”That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.”Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

Angie’s main goal was to stand out from their competition on the shelf. This meant giving them a facelift, but more importantly an attitude adjustment that would make people smile. We refreshed everything from their logo to their packaging, and created a new brand language that was delightfully different from everyone else in the seriously crowded snack aisle.

Soulseven is the creative studio of Samuel J Soulek, who resides in the great Midwestern city of Minneapolis. I’m a multidisciplinary designer, specializing in logos, identity systems, branding, retail, packaging, print collateral, advertising, illustration and beer bottle cap crafts. Whatever the challenge, my goal is to help elevate my employer or client’s potential through smart ideas, clear speak and solid design.

"A set of four limited edition prints entitled ‘Smile in the mind’ - a homage to the late / great Alan Fletcher."

Our philosophy is simple. We strive to distil what’s most important and represent this in the most effective, engaging way possible. Good design is the sum of many things; we surround ourselves with like-minded individuals who each bring their unique skills to our projects. We foster an environment of experimentation and collaboration, adapting the best of what we know to push boundaries and define new possibilities.
