Olssøn BarbieriOB

Over the past decade, we have collaborated with small family companies and big corporations, both locally and internationally. We have helped brands articulate their stories, created bestsellers, won awards, grown our team and moved into a new office with a nice view.

We have evolved by staying true to our belief that there is a better way to make products and empower a world of mindful consumers. Our intention for the future is to question our society of overconsumption and abuse of resources and contribute to a positive shift through beauty and purpose.

Since 2012 our studio has been specializing in brand identity and packaging design. If your project is small or big, independent or commercial – don't hesitate to contact us. We would love to hear from you.

Our role as designers

We believe designers have the possibility to affect social and cultural attitudes. We know how to identify opportunities and challenges early on and to turn them into concrete design solutions that deliver beyond the expected.

The way we produce and consume food and goods today is a complex discussion with many layers and no black & white answers. We believe our experience brings a nuanced contribution to this discussion. Designers should contribute with new and creative strategies for policymaking and cross-industry dialogue, to create less harmful waste cycles.

Every project has the potential of reducing its environmental impact, creating better rituals and making us consumers more aware that we are living in a symbiotic world. This debate is not only about the choice of materials and understanding the entire life cycle of each product, but also about contributing to a shift in consciousness and attitude towards our habitat.
