We help early stage companies
explore, prototype, and launch their ideas.

We capture ideas through clear strategies and engaging user experiences to make them valuable, enjoyable and memorable.



The Office for Visual Affairs is a multidisciplinary branding and user experience design studio based in New York City. We've collaborated with clients like Nestlé, the Wall Street Journal or NYU to launch new endeavours. Our real passion lies with early stage companies of which we’ve worked with AirBnB, Contently or StartUp Health to name a few, to communicate their vision and grow their business through elegant and thoughtful experiences.

OVA is lead by Sascha Mombartz, who previously worked for the New York Times and at Google's Creative Lab. He grew up in Ethiopia, Thailand, Egypt and Germany and studied art & design at the Cooper Union.
