About Us

Upper Notch is a design practice operating out of southern New Hampshire and northeast New Jersey. We are a women-owned company comprised of designers, copywriters, and developers with diverse backgrounds and a shared passion for creative thinking.

Put your vision and expertise center stage.

At Upper Notch, we approach each project as a challenge in translation—understanding your priorities and goals and creating design solutions that resonate with your audience.

We begin by listening to the story of how your company, or project, came to be—and how you’d like it to evolve. We thrive on immersing ourselves in the discovery process, distilling our findings, and using our creativity to achieve results. Our clients value our thoughtful approach and dedication to understanding their objectives.
