What We Do

Industrial Design

Here at Blond our specialty is Industrial Design. We craft beautiful products with meaning that help transform brands into market leaders. From sketch to manufacture support, we can efficiently develop any product for mass or small-scale production.

UX/UI Design

User interface is at the heart of many digital products, with digital devices we believe in designing from the inside out. We create beautiful and simple digital solutions that can stand alone or function seamlessly with the industrial design.

Visualisation & CAD

We create computer generated images of photo realistic quality - product packaging to architectural interiors and concept imagery.  Our industrial and interior design background gives us a technical understanding of materials and construction - helping us accurately portray the story with each image.

Branding & Packaging

At Blond we have a passion for storytelling and originality, two vital attributes of any successful brand identity. We craft and lovingly build simple branding solutions for an array of clients – from crowd-funding start-ups to global market leaders.
