Our capabilities allow us to create brands from the ground up. We develop brand identity systems for businesses of all sizes, from startups to longstanding, established brands. Our capabilities span the entire process from early development to final execution of printed collateral and digital development. In addition to brand assets, we have comprehensive experience in developing brand application guidelines and documentation.
Digital & Development
In addition to our design capabilities, we also offer integrated digital design and development. Our digital work is informed by our traditional design skillset but also enhanced by our in-depth understand of digital platforms. Our experience is diverse and covers responsive web development, user interface design, applications, email direct marketing, e-commerce and digital publications.

With extensive experience designing periodicals, books and collateral, print-based publication has always been an integral part of our work. Informed by an in-depth knowledge of printing and production processes, we are able to deliver print-based work of the highest possible calibre.
Environmental & Wayfinding
With unique experience and in-depth knowledge of wayfinding and signage projects, we offer a comprehensive environmental design skillset.

We are offering both external and internal design consulting services. DesignDepartment™ is an internal design consultancy program offering in-house design consulting for short or long time periods.
