"Specializing in work that evokes natural simplicity through personalized design."
Second Half is a woman-run + independently owned boutique design studio specializing in work that evokes natural simplicity through personalized graphic design, branding, illustration, and calligraphy services.
The studio came to fruition in 2016 when Renee Sandoval began working with small businesses around the greater Detroit area and found herself more fulfilled by crafting her own creative constraints. Her keen attention to detail and simplistic approach to design + illustration defines her body of work.
Currently residing in Queens, New York, Renee has expanded her design studio and creative offerings, started a greeting card line (DBR Co.) and is continually challenging herself in new ways. Her next venture is a partnership with Annie Hakim—Grower and Co-owner of Featherstone Garden in Detroit—to write, design and publish a farm-focused cookbook.
