Design Studio



What We Do

One Design exists to create evocative and enduring brands.
We are galvanised by unorthodox thinking. Recognising that style and substance aren’t mutually exclusive, we believe that exceptional design arises from a robust foundational idea. We work collaboratively with our clients to create meaningful work that makes a formidable impact in its category.
We are an agile, hands on team who are motivated to deliver immaculate, nuanced design across all our projects, regardless of their scale. Our work deftly balances playfulness with purpose, and artistry with commercial viability, resulting in an execution that engages consumers and engenders longstanding loyalty. We work meticulously, delving into every new creative challenge in a questioning and explorative way with a rigorous commitment to craft and detail.
Well established with over 20 years in the industry, we have carved a niche for ourselves in packaging design, primarily across beverages and FMCG, and our awards attest to the high quality of our work.
