Material Bank Sandow

Material Bank, an ultra innovative platform developed by SANDOW, is poised to transform the way architects and designers work. A&D specifiers can perform complex searches across hundreds of manufacturers within seconds and request material samples that are delivered the next day free for design professionals.

SANDOW tapped Conway+Partners to be part of their dynamic, collaborative team to help tell the story of Material Bank and provide cross-disciplinary insights. With a wealth of combined experience and resources, Conway+Partners worked with SANDOW to develop a brand identity and brand guidelines, which informed everything from to the packaging and print materials sent to A&D users.
