To cut a 30-year long story short, we’re a design agency and always have been. As our industry has progressed, we have evolved, and so has the importance of design
The year is 1987. The Simpsons first airs on tv, and Tinker Hatfield designs the Nike Air Max. Scandinavian Design Group start a journey to champion design as a strategic tool. Since then, as the longest-running design agency in Norway, we’ve applied our craft to everything from domestic internationals to small niche brands. With our multidisciplinary approach, we have helped our customers through every type of transition you can think of. Brands have the ability to guide, impact, touch and connect with people. We are humbled that our clients trust us with theirs.
Our design processes are rooted in our Scandinavian Design heritage. Design should improve by simplifying; augmenting what’s most important. This works best through close collaboration with our clients, from strategy through to launch and implementation.
