how we work

who we are

At Kameny Design, our brand is our client’s brand. We eat, drink, and breathe your brand essence to create designs and messaging uniquely ownable to your brand.

Kameny Design is a design studio that believes compelling design comes from a thorough understanding of a clients’ brand — how to communicate its essence, and connect it to its audiences. We work from a palette of creativity, strong strategic thinking, and enthusiasm so that your brand results are memorable and engaging.

The studio’s work encompasses areas such as logotype development and business systems, sustainability and corporate social responsibility reports, advertising/marketing communications materials, interactive media and environmental signage, but, at the end of the day, what we do is find the right design solution in response to a client’s need.

The studio is lean and efficient, drawing on a trusted network of award-winning, world-class associates including designers, writers, web and production professionals. And because of our studio structure, we can deliver highly-focused, individualized attention.

Over recent years, our clients have included start-ups like New York Water Taxi and the Hudson River Park, as well as KKR (Kohlberg Kravis and Roberts) for the BrightLeaf Group, the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership at City College/CUNY, the 9/11 Memorial Museum, New York Restoration Project, JASA, Circle Line Downtown, Palisade Jewelers, and JoMart Chocolates.

So, if you’re looking for a studio whose brand will become your brand — hello and welcome.


Leslie Kameny > Founder > Designer > CCO

As Principal of Kameny Design, I get to express my passion for design and its broad effects on consumers and clients alike. My work spans from the highly technical to green or sustainable ventures. As principal of Kameny Design and as a senior creative in other agencies has resulted in an ability to organize and manage large, complex projects as well as work fluidly with creative teams. Clients have been supported with smart, innovative design and we have formed dynamic relationships based on honesty, commitment, integrity, and collaboration.

Prior to opening the design studio in 2002, I worked as a Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director at MRGL (McCaffery Ratner Gottlieb Lane) and before that as Executive Vice President/Creative Director at Venet Advertising.

In my personal time, I have been involved with community issues serving as chair of my town’s tree committee and as ceramics studio assistant at the Middlebury Studio School.
