Our Design Philosophy

“Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could possibly detract from it.” — Dieter Rams »— Dieter Rams

We adhere to Dieter Rams’ Ten Principles of Good Design. While his forte is industrial design, we emulate Rams’ philosophy in our designs because it works. PRINCIPLES »

Dieter Rams’ Ten Principles

Good design...

is innovative. The possibilities for innovation are not, by any means, exhausted. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for innovative design. But innovative design always develops in tandem with innovative technology, and can never be an end in itself.

makes a product useful. A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy certain criteria, not only functional, but also psychological and aesthetic. Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could possibly detract from it.

is aesthetic. The aesthetic quality of a product is integral to its usefulness because products are used every day and have an effect on people and their well-being. Only well-executed objects can be beautiful.

makes a product understandable. It clarifies the product’s structure. Better still, it can make the product clearly express its function by making use of the user’s intuition. At best, it is self-explanatory.

is unobtrusive. Products fulfilling a purpose are like tools. They are neither decorative objects nor works of art. Their design should therefore be both neutral and restrained, to leave room for the user’s self-expression.

is honest. It does not make a product more innovative, powerful or valuable than it really is. It does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept.

is long-lasting. It avoids being fashionable and therefore never appears antiquated. Unlike fashionable design, it lasts many years — even in today’s throwaway society.

is thorough down to the last detail. Nothing must be arbitrary or left to chance. Care and accuracy in the design process show respect towards the consumer.

is environmentally friendly. Design makes an important contribution to the preservation of the environment. It conserves resources and minimizes physical and visual pollution throughout the lifecycle of the product.

is as little design as possible. Less, but better — because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.

Our “less, but better” approach to graphic design utilizes only those elements that will best support your company’s brand and message. The clarity of our designs ensures your audience will readily perceive your ideas in ways that are impacting and memorable. MORE »

Our environment is all too often overwhelmed by complicated, ineffective communications. We believe that content should be the focus and that your marketing and sales platforms should provide a wealth of information without the distractions of visual clutter.
