It’s official, the business has a name!

Scherzo Design

Where did it come from:   Etymology:  From Italian scherzo “joke, play”, from scherzare “to joke, jest” from Old Italian scherzare, of Germanic origin, from Lombardic *skerzan “to jump merrily, enjoy oneself, jest”

Noun:  (music) A piece of music or a movement from a larger piece such as a symphony; especially, a piece of music played in a playful manner, played in triple time

Scherzo.   Not only is it a word that evokes liveliness from it pronounciation, it’s meaning also reflects our design esthetic.  While design can be classic and formal, it doesn’t have to be serious.  What makes a design interesting and compelling is when a little something is included that is unexpected.  It may be as subtle as a color highlight or as overt as combining contrasting elements.   It allows the design to engage the beholder with a little wink.
