Who we are

Home / About us

"Design transcends its traditional boundaries and aims straight at the core of the moral sphere, toying with our most deep-seated beliefs"

William Myers
Design Gang is a design and consulting studio, composed of a team of carefully selected and highly qualified personnel.
Our team includes designers, graphic designers, marketing experts and web developers who possess all the professional skills necessary to create a new product, ambient or service.

Since 2004, we have been developing ideas for companies, private individuals and public authorities. We work for major brands and we believe in an integrated design approach. 
At Gang, we consider design as the means of innovating goods, services and tools by placing the individual at the centre of the project. The main function of design is to create a character, a personality, even a soul through which the products are related to people and the environment.
We engage with design in all its forms. We use innovative analysis and market research methods with reference to socio-cultural contexts and trends in general to create new products. The main objective is to tell a story, to deliver a message that is appropriate to the socio-cultural context. 
Design enables companies to become independent and create their own style, their own products and their own market. Companies need not follow others and may even anticipate them, creating their own path, their own role in the market and their own relationship with the public.

Philosophy

"Design is a way of discussing society, politics, eroticism, food and even design"

Ettore Sottsass
At Design Gang, we believe being proactive is essential. We do not wait for market pressures, instead, we try to ignite sparks which over time have been transformed in two ways; in special projects worldwide and in a virtuous dialogue with the most important entities of the territory in terms of design.
Turin has proved to be a strategic city. Since 2008 it has been designated as a World Design Capital by Icsid and in 2015 the city was selected by UNESCO as an Italian Creative City of Design.

Design Gang is founded upon the idea of free creativity in order to inject its full potential into each project.
Our designs are within reach of every customer, as we manage to create individually tailored projects that meet their needs, mindsets and budgets.
Our mission is to diffuse the culture of design, which we believe is the driving force of change: it is at the foundation of every effective business strategy and it is its first tangible expression, both in terms of design and in the way in which it interacts with society and with each individual.

At Gang, our evolutionary philosophy is based on the idea of sustainability that speaks of re-spect for the future and an ethical system that is compatible with the individual, social and human sphere.

Method

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Mark Twain
At Design Gang, our methodology is our main innovation: how we organise and manage a project, how we select resources, suitable tools and how we involve people through the delega-tion of responsibility.

The magic that is capable of generating a design expresses itself through innovation. The first important achievement is the formation of a highly qualified design team, a continuous process that creates true lasting value: the group and the relationships between people.
Our work concept places the individual and their potential at the centre, trusting in morals and ethics that we also seek to insert into our projects.
Our versatility allows us to offer our customers unique value, giving them a broader-reaching con-sultation that flows into marketing. There is constant dialogue between our departments.
Every team member adds value to each project or product, of which the communication and marketing strategy has already been considered in the planning stage.
