FOUNDED in 1923, BEST Design Incorporated has produced innovative design for several generations of American and foreign markets. With the exception of a brief period following the Crash of 1929, BEST has enjoyed steady growth throughout the century. With headquarters in New York City and offices in London, Tokyo, Milan, Amsterdam and Miami’s South Beach, BEST Design Incorporated is recognized as the largest graphic design firm of the Western World. Our design achievements have been widely lauded by the media and the international design community. In fact, our President, Alexander Whitney Knowlton, has been the recipient of over 500 awards, including the prestigious Best Designer in the World Award. All of this attention has not diminished his appreciation for our clients and understanding their individual needs. He still answers the phone personally and designs almost everything produced by our offices.

We attribute the enormous success of our company to our dedication to excellence. We feel that anyone who seeks us out understands how good design can define the worth of their product. We don’t advertise our services and obtain each new account based solely on our reputation. If you would like to reap the benefits of working with a leader in the professional design industry, contact us. And by the way, the above information isn’t entirely true. We just wanted your attention. Sorry.
