Together We Design better human experiences.

We are Together We Design, a team of four designers from the Philippines. Since 2017, we’ve worked with clients across different industries in building brands that matter through real and honest designs that tell stories, change conversations, and create better human experiences.
OUR PHILOSOPHY

Brands that matter are built on and with real and honest designs that create better human experiences.

What moves a brand from being a mark to making its mark is good design.
More than just the visual identity of logos, fonts, and colors, good design gives the brand its original, distinct character with which it carves out its place in the human psyche, grounded in stories that resonate.
Real and honest, good design builds deeper connections with people through an experience of the brand, and through new and better experiences with the brand.
OUR PROCESS

Good design doesn’t just happen,
there’s a process to it.

First, we dive. We listen to our clients’ stories to know how and why it started, what and where it is now, what it should become and where it should go. We look at the environment of the specific industry and competition. And we immerse ourselves in the brand as its market does or would. 

 

Next, we create. With insights on and of the brand, its context, and its experience, we approach the problem from different perspectives and strategize on how to move the brand towards its goal. We translate our ideas into visible, tangible, and clear output. 

 

Finally, we connect. The purpose of real, honest design is only fully realized in the context of the human experience. And so we put it where it ought to be: at the right touch points where people can connect with the brand, appreciate its content and the stories behind it, and even create their own stories with it.
