Company

Pentagon Design, founded in 1996, is one of the leading Nordic design agencies. We create holistic concepts resulting in user-driven products, packaging, spaces, services and brand experiences that generate delight for consumers and value for our clients.
 
We believe in clarity, quality and creativity. Our mission is to reinvent the everyday design. We believe that good design starts with positivity.
 
We are proactive. We respect our client’s wishes but always offer insights of our own. We are holistic and agile. Our client list includes both international companies and local start-ups. We do not believe in standard solutions. Our work is always unique.
 
We attribute our success to “rational passion”, our system of integrating rigorous processes and out of-the-box creativity. That is what we do. That is what we know. That is what we are famous for.
 
Our Helsinki-based team is made up of 16 designers from various educational and professional backgrounds. We believe that versatility equals good design.
 

Awards

We believe that our work is best measured through client and end user feedback. We will never design for awards or competitions but solely for our clients. However, the international and domestic industry recognitions we have received, confirm that we are good at what we do. And that, of course, makes us proud and happy.
