About SeymourPowell.
We are a multidisciplinary group of design researchers, strategists, brand experts, product, UX, UI designers & makers.

Our track record of imagining and then creating award winning designs and world-first innovation solutions stretches back over 30 years. We’ve helped companies plan everything from the future of domestic lifestyles, their brand executions to transportation networks and sports nutrition. And we’ve created many of the products and services you interact with on a daily basic from the shower you wake up with, to the phone you use, the packaging you purchase and the in store experience that delights.

People often ask us what’s the secret to the work we do. It’s not a formulaic or proprietary process, or the ideas of a singular rock star designer but the hard nosed imagination that comes from our multidisciplinary team and yours working together to shape the future.
