who are we:

Jeffery Laine is the founder and creative director behind Asterix Studio. His aesthetic is informed by a decade of adventures to far-off corners of the world like Hokkaido and Tasmania. He is joined by Andrea Bertossi who heads up the administrative side of the business. Headquartered in Toronto, Asterix Studio partners with design-driven companies within Canada and internationally. 

Frustrated by the cookie-cutter logos created by digital design factories, Asterix Studio was established as an antidote. Our process begins with the goal of really understanding the desired outcome for each client and company we partner with. We focus on the initial research and iteration until a unified brand identity emerges. The result? Individualized design that works.
