About Konbi

Our method

We embrace graphic design as a language of all 7 senses, used for communicating stories and products, games and services to the wide public of the Internet age.

By definition a mixed-media creative process, graphic design has no boundaries, and one could consider a stamp, an animated film, photography or mobile applications as all parts of the same craft.

When starting a new project, we discuss with our clients their vision of their brand, who their consumers are today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.

To translate in time our clients' expectations into the most creative and successful design strategies, products and digital campaigns, we don’t freeze design decisions during production, quickly reshaping projects accordingly when needed.

Our motto

Our job is to create sharp and simple designs and tell universal stories with an original twist.

Dialogue is key

It’s as important for us to understand our clients’ jobs as we think it is for them to have an interest in graphic design process. Dialogue is key to pushing a design to its most accuracy and efficiency. Both clients and designers know mission is accomplished when dialogue is no longer needed.
