Rocket Ranch Design + Advertising was founded in 2003 by Giannina Granata Silverman, as a way to offer big-agency creative blended with the personal, high-touch service of a small boutique design studio.
Originally based outside of Boston, Rocket Ranch Design moved to the Seattle area in 2005. We happily work with clients on both coasts, blending our East Coast go-getter attitude with a laid-back West Coast vibe.
About the Founder

Giannina has also been a Guest Lecturer on Advertising Art Direction at the Massachusetts College of Art, and has spoken at the University of Washington's "Fashion: Concept to Market" class about branding and marketing necessities for the emerging fashion designer.
