Labour made its mark early on, earning an Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Art Direction and Design for its work on the VH1 miniseries NY77: The Coolest Year in Hell. Other recognitions came from The Art Director’s club, naming Labour a Young Gun for excellent work under the age of 30, and a similar accolade from Print magazine as a New Visual Artist. Labour’s work has been included in dozens of publications, books, and exhibitions. For speaking engagements and press inquiries, please get in touch by emailing pr@labour-ny.com

Labour is a creative office based in Brooklyn, New York.

Founded in 2008 by partners Ryan Dunn and Wyeth Hansen, Labour employs a craftsman approach, with both partners closely involved in each project covering all aspects. Limiting the number of jobs at a given time allows for this intimate of an approach.

Our clients have invested a great deal into their pursuits, whether as globally scaled businesses or as individuals on a mission. Labour is a special-projects office, offering our sensibility and leadership to clients expanding into new territories, or those in search of a fresh approach to old problems. We create visual identities and branding, offer support with art direction, design, animation, audio, and creative strategy.

In addition to client work, we’re constantly thinking, creating and experimenting for ourselves, with the results of these endeavours feeding back into our commercial work.

It’s not a bad way to spend the day, really.
