How do we work?

With our Design Method in place, we follow a disciplined approach to discover “what lies beneath” in the minds of the targeted audience. We research the key global / local trends, survey competitors’ communications, create and develop names and identities, and put communication strategies into place to help bring your brand to life.

What to expect from us?

From just the one designer to a whole team, we put the right team in place for you to help ensure you receive the service that works for you, within your budget and delivered on time. We take your project as seriously as you do.

It started with:

Sirkka: I am the creative director and founder of Design Syndicate which I established in 2003. Working as a designer since 1990, I am still exploring all the wide-ranging facets of graphic design with the focus on brand development, in short, I love what I am doing!

After completing a design degree in the United States, and working in Germany, I settled in London where I worked as a designer for two design agencies before setting up a design business with a friend in 1996. The company grew rapidly, gathering together a versatile team of creatives. We worked predominantly on European projects, ranging from brand management for Hewlett Packard, retail and point of sale concepts for Marks & Spencer, advertising campaigns for Loyd Grossman, Kodak and Unilever, Somerfield and direct mail strategies for Volvo.
