Phony is a sound design studio.

We believe in the transformative power of sound. We amplify experience, direct behavior, and elevate brands.

We believe that sound design is about every sound that contributes to experience. Holistic curation: adding, subtracting, and directing sound.

We start with research and insight to inform our decisions. We scrutinize the story you want to tell, the identity you want to embody, the experience you want to create. Then, we harness the power of sound to bring your vision to life.

Together, we can craft a world where you're not just heard, but felt.
