Disegno Works is a London-based creative agency launched in 2014 by the quarterly design journal Disegno.
We are storytellers and content creators. We create custom publishing projects, films, events and installations. Everything we produce is tailor-made and rooted in the identities of the brands we work with. We make unique, evocative content that communicates the unique stories of our clients.
We take projects from initial ideas through to final outcomes, and provide strategic guidance throughout. Many of our clients come from the design sector, but we work with brands and people from other areas too. We are analytical and thoughtful and like to get to the heart of what our clients are about.
Aesthetics are vital to everything we do, and our team of artists and designers find the best visuals to present your brand. Through design, we can help you define the way your work is framed and perceived.
Our projects directly engage with audiences and we regularly create bespoke events that can be tailored to trade, media or consumers. We are experts at finding rare venues and staging unforgettable events.
We specialise in using film to build immersive, exciting worlds around brands. Our network of directors and editors create inspiring reportage, fashion, and art films that elegantly communicate your brand’s identity.
Graphics define the way that information is understood, and our designers find visual languages to suit any project. We consider all graphic details, from typography and layout, through to logo design and branding.
We have faith in visuals and believe that photography enlivens any project. Working with fashion and still-life photographers, we create images that will define people’s vision of your brand.
Our team of acclaimed writers produce outstanding content to suit any purpose and fit any platform. We are committed to lively, insightful writing and find the perfect words to tell your story.
