Design DNA

Determining your unique Design DNA, visual brand language and signature. Developing guidelines and assisting in coherently expanding your portfolio or service.

Design DNA is the visual identity of your products. Matching your design objectives with a strong visual form language to leverage and develop your brand.

Visual brand language or Design DNA (Designed Narrative Attributes) based on user research and market analysis, leads to bigger brand loyalty, awareness, recognition, and a defined market position. Creating tools and guidelines to establish consistency in product portfolios and strategic product differentiation is the key to establish an appealing and comprehensive brand.

Creating a good design language is not an easy task, however by comprehensive research and co-creation we can deliver practical toolkits and guidelines to implement in your process. Since no brand or case is the same, we offer a tailor-made approach to each challenge.

Art direction & Workshops

We offer our expertise and experience in strategic design to co-create the overall product strategies as well as assistance in the smallest detail. To leverage brands by design we kickstart new developments by co-creation workshops, coaching or periodic meetings.

Good solutions require good insights and process planning, therefore we offer creative direction, organize co-creation workshops and offer trainings in our strategic toolbox.

To support your development in the best way possible we teach your team valuable techniques and offer tools to be used in the design process. Combining our know-how of design processes and your specific market knowledge we co-create future proof results.
