Sustainable Brand Systems

Sustainability advocates

Sustainability means different things to different people. We believe all organizations are on a path toward the triple bottom line: People, Planet, and Profit. We help clients on their journey.

Brand experts

In a room full of designers, we are brand experts. We've consulted with hundreds of clients for 25 years. Our book has been translated into six languages, and we continue to write, speak, and teach on the subject.

Systems thinkers

We create systems to deliver value. If brands signal value propositions, value is realized through the customer experience. Aligning customer interactions, digital tools, communications, and teams requires systems thinking.

We have deep experience with built environments providers.

Our clients are invested in change.

Peopledesign is extremely strategic, creative, and organized. Unfortunately, you don’t often see agencies excel in all three of these areas.

Tracy Harrison
Program Leader, Haworth

The time we spent with Peopledesign was like going through a doorway. We are fundamentally different today as a result, and we have come to appreciate more and more just how much you packed into the toolkit you presented us.
