Philosophy

Design that matters

We blend industry expertise, a robust network, and investor connections to fuel innovation and brand transformation. Our mission is to harness the power of design to shape the world, aiding entrepreneurs and companies in crafting impactful products and brands.

Who we are

Where Entrepreneurs and Designers Unite for Transformational Solutions.

Welcome to Gärde Design, a design agency founded by graphic designer Marcus Gärde in collaboration with Oliver Hildebrandt, a serial entrepreneur and the mind behind ArK Kapital.

At Gärde Design, we have a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities that come with building a successful brand. Led by our experienced founder Marcus Gärde, who has spearheaded rebranding projects for renowned companies like Scandinavian Airlines and Nordea, we have honed our expertise in brand transformation.

We specialize in strategic design solutions that bring cohesiveness to brand identities, enhance brand recognition, and drive company growth. We recognize the difficulties that early-stage companies often face in establishing impactful brand identities that resonate with their target audience and attract key stakeholders such as talent and investors. Our growth-oriented approach, infused with insights and agility, allows us to craft tailored design solutions for startups and established tech companies alike.

What we do

Pioneering a Holistic and Seamless Implementation Structure for Design Solutions.

Unlike traditional design agencies, Gärde Design takes a holistic approach to design and implementation. We understand that branding and implementation are interconnected, and by gathering a small team of experts in both areas, we can offer a seamless and comprehensive design process. Our multidisciplinary team collaborates closely, ensuring that every aspect of the design aligns with the brand strategy and objectives. By integrating branding and implementation, we avoid the common pitfalls that can negatively impact the final result.

How we do it

Partnership, Not Just a Client-Agency Relationship.

At Gärde Design, we believe in building strong partnerships with our clients. We view ourselves as an extension of their team, working together towards a common goal. By immersing ourselves in our clients' businesses, we gain a deep understanding of their values, aspirations, and target audience. This allows us to create design solutions that not only align with their objectives but also resonate with their target market. Through open communication and collaboration, we foster a sense of trust and transparency that is essential for successful design projects.

Why we do it

Impactful Products and Brands: Shaping the World Through Strategic Design Solutions.

Our ultimate goal at Gärde Design is to create impactful products and brands that shape the world. We believe that design has the power to transform businesses and influence society. By combining strategic thinking, creativity, and meticulous execution, we strive to deliver design solutions that not only meet our clients objectives but also resonate with their target audience.
