Studio

At Might & Main, everything we do gets everything we've got. Our name speaks to our beliefs.

"With might and main" is an Old English phrase meaning "with all of the strength, energy, and force at one's command.

Might & Main was founded on the principles of excellent design, collaboration, hard work, and rigorous attention to detail. We believe that no consideration is too small to be important, and that each element must be true and purposeful on its own while contributing to the impact of a greater whole. We find an honesty in genuine materials and beauty in the details. 

Might & Main has created and revitalized memorable, iconic brands for businesses — both in Maine and nationally — across a wide range of industries.

 

we specialize in brand-focused work that is research-based, strategy driven, and consistently well executed.  

Whether we're brought on board for expertise or for objectivity, our process is always client- and end-user focused. We begin every project with a focus on research and strategy, digging deeply into what makes each of our clients tick — and what will differentiate them from others in the arena. Our ability to delve into a field and immerse ourselves in its language allows us a unique perspective from which to create unique, appropriate, brand-conscious design. Our commitment to excellence in execution sets our work — and our brands — apart from the crowd.

Team

Team

We're a small company and we like it that way. Each member of our core team is personally invested in every project, and we frequently partner with a bevy of skilled, passionate makers and doers to extend our capabilities from screen to real life, from conceptual to actual, from strategy to reality.

 

Might & Main is helmed by founding principals Sean Wilkinson & Arielle Walrath:

 
 Sean Wilkinson   Principal / Creative Director

Sean Wilkinson

Principal / Creative Director

Sean believes in the power of typography and form, of language and craft, to shape brands into the true personalities they are. Every object has a voice, and a soul, and our mission as designers is to find that voice and make it tangible. To create something that exists in the world that we can understand, want in our lives, and build a relationship with. Sean is usually seeking to make sense of life through design. 

 Arielle Walrath   Principal / Creative Director

Arielle Walrath

Principal / Creative Director

Arielle believes that beauty can be achieved through structure and that design is the process of defining structure: everything in its place and everything as part of a whole. Our purpose as designers is to create systems which are beautiful, but which are also orderly, logical and efficient. At Might & Main, and as the Co-President of AIGA Maine, Arielle seeks to bring meaning and context to the artifacts we produce by asking "why?" and "how?" on a daily basis.
