Phoenix Design is a design and innovation studio creating smart and substantial brand experiences that make eminent business sense and which touch people – today, for tomorrow. Since 1987, products, interactions, and digital ecosystems have been created based on the fundamental values of Logic, Morals, and Magic. More than 800 design awards (1st place – iF World Design Index, Design Studios) confirm the quality and continuity of the worldwide work, i. a. the award of honour "Red Dot: Design Team of the Year 2018".

All efforts by Phoenix Design are thus tailored to meet real everyday needs and desires of real people regardless of age, background, or lifestyle.

In order to create a holistic brand experience, Phoenix Design is working with a multi-disciplinary approach, supporting its clients from the first idea via design all the way to the final data set, often in long-standing partnerships. Change and re-invention are building blocks of success, deeply ingrained in the PHOENIX DNA. Driven by curiosity for everything that arises, the studio is permanently changing itself and its partners in order to ensure the substantial further development and future-readiness on both sides.
