4xN is a full-stack design and consulting studio. We help small and mid-sized companies compete through sophisticated branding; engaging and clear storytelling; intuitive, results-oriented websites, apps and products; and high-impact marketing materials and experiences.
We’ve spent years working with the well-established industry leaders and with companies just starting out. We know what it takes to get from point A to point B and how to prioritize work that will have the most impact and return on investment.
Too often, there’s a gap between the strategy and the execution: This is where we really shine. We’re an interdisciplinary team of interdisciplinary people. Our knowledge in overlapping and complementary domains makes us exceptionally skilled at transforming ideas into things and experiences.
We’ve been around the block enough to know that good design work alone is not enough. It has to be accepted and adopted within an organization, both conceptually and procedurally. We support our clients to sell their ideas and our work up the chain so that they get the buy-in and resources they need to be successful. We also create rollout and training plans to make sure that people are ready and equipped to respond to any changes that ripple from our work.
We’re actually quite nice to work with, but we are ruthlessly committed to getting things done. Most companies offering the range of services we do are huge (bloated, some may say). Every single person on our team takes a hands-on role within the studio and on projects. That means resources are always spent moving work forward, not padding administrative overhead.
We’re local and global. We have headquarters in Glendale, CA, and team members in Spain, Turkey, India, Germany, and the Philippines — but we’re not an outsource shop. FourByNorth was founded in 2010 by an American in Istanbul, and an international crew has been a part of our DNA since day one.
As people sought to change residences, we embraced a remote office model and have expanded our footprint to more than 5 countries. Now, we enjoy the benefits of a truly global perspective with the rhythm of a fine-tuned team.
