Compelled to create

Motivated to serve

Pappagalo Brand Studio is a boutique creative agency helping purpose-driven organizations fulfill their missions. We partner with world-changing leaders to help them develop, grow, and nurture their brand presence through strategic creative and compassionate service.

Purpose-driven brands

So, what is a purpose-driven brand…don’t all companies have a purpose? Great question and yes, all companies have a purpose (or at least they should). But what we’re referring to are those organizations that are motivated and inspired to make the world a better place. These organizations hold fast to their values and let them permeate every aspect of their organization with the conviction that their purpose is greater than their success. For more than 20 years, we’ve had the pleasure of being in the trenches with many of these organizations and seeing first-hand what makes them remarkable and we’re inspired by all the good they bring about.

Join the team!

We’re always looking for talented creators to join our team. We regularly work with designers, writers, photographers, videographers, developers, and many other gifted specialists who partner with us in serving our awesome clients. If you’re interested in working together, we’d love to hear from you!

Brian Pappagalo

Brian got his start at Azusa Pacific University, working for the university’s in-house marketing department as a designer. From there he went on to work at various advertising agencies and non-profit organizations where he cultivated his passion for brand design, project management, and organizational development. He enjoys building collaborative relationships with his clients and working together to transform their most complex brand challenges into inspiring, growth opportunities. 

When Brian’s not sketching out the next campaign on his enormous whiteboard, or nerding out on building a new spreadsheet, you’ll find him out in nature hunting down hidden waterfalls and discovering new adventures for his family.

Starr Pappagalo

After graduating with a design degree from the University of Arizona, Starr went on to work in various design studios and advertising agencies where she grew as a designer, art director, and content strategist. From there she transitioned into non-profit work where she helped organizations focus their communications, build sustainable processes, and beautify their brand from the inside out. She is passionate about building relationships and serving others, both personally and professionally. 

When Starr’s not experimenting with color and word-smithing communications, you’ll find her out in the community meeting new people and making friends wherever she goes, or at the gym with our little gymnast-in-training, the one and only Emma Pearl.

Sorry, realize that’s a little cheesy but be forewarned that there’s a lot more of that to come 😁. In all seriousness, we love being a small company and we plan to keep it that way. We’ve found that staying small allows us to serve our clients with more intentionality and care. There’s no ego here, just a strong desire to do more good by using our experience to serve you in making the world a better place. Our boutique creative agency helps purpose-driven brands drive their mission forward. We’re brand specialists who take just as much joy in serving you and your vision as we do in creating meaningful work. We are committed to cultivating a culture where proactive understanding, kind candor, and generous support are actively practiced. 

So, what is a purpose-driven brand…don’t all companies have a purpose? Great question and yes, all companies have a purpose (or at least they should). Simply put, we’re referring to brands that exist to make the world better. These organizations hold fast to their values and let them permeate every aspect of their business with the conviction that their purpose is greater than their profit.
