SUMMIT, NJ - Two award-winning graphic design studios, Enzo Creative of Summit, and Tribecca Designs of New York City, have announced their merger to become Trillion, a creative agency that specializes in graphic design and web design with a focus on branding.
The new graphic design studio is located in Summit in order to serve clients on both sides of the Hudson River from offices that are convenient to mass transit and local highways.
The principals of Trillion, Lou Leonardis of Enzo Creative, and Larissa Montecuollo of Tribecca Designs, are both New Jersey natives. They share a history of success, having navigated their former studios through tough recessionary times, only to emerge stronger and better positioned for growth as Trillion; well-timed as the economy picks up steam.
“Trillion represents a lot of hard work and a dedication to seeing to it that client needs are met and exceeded,” Montecuollo said. “Together we offer clients the innovative, creative design services and branding expertise that are critical to success in this ever-evolving new media age.”
Trillion specializes in creating multi-pronged branding design and campaigns for B2B and B2C industries such as restaurants, food and hospitality, corporate human resources, not for profits, finance and investment, professional services, education, and residential service businesses, to name a few areas of significant experience. Brands served have included Time Warner, Colgate Palmolive, Bin 14, Bourbon Street Bar & Grille, JetBlue, cer té cafe & catering, Crema Restaurante, Hologic, BNP Paribas, New York Beer Company, Empire Entertainment, Harley Davidson, Little Red School House, National Geographic Green Guide, The San Francisco Arts Commission and Wharton Business School, among many others.
“Combined, our team offers more than 50 years of experience in graphic design, branding and advertising. Our work has been featured in industry leading publications such as Graphic Design USA and NJBIZ, and recognized by the NJ Ad Club, Art Directors Club, Hermes International Awards, and many other design competitions” Leonardis said. “We’re proud of the success we’ve had in the past; but even more we’re looking forward to a new beginning that provides our clients with the services of one of the metropolitan area’s leading creative agencies. That’s what’s most exciting!”
Leonardis and Montecuollo met through their participation in Spark Design Professionals, a New York City non-profit serving independent graphic design professionals who meet regularly to discuss business and creative issues that are relevant to design studios. Montecuollo is President of Spark, and Leonardis is the group’s New Initiatives Chair.
“I was really happy to have met and worked with Lou through an organization that encourages best practices in the design business. Spark really did provided the spark which led to this new opportunity,” Montecuollo said through a smile.
