Frontier is a small design office built to deliver a big idea: Purpose-Driven Performance. To us, this means creating exceptional products, brands, and experiences with a meaningful purpose at their core. It means our work spans all types of design challenges, and we have a pretty deep toolbox with which we approach them.
We collaborate with organizations to help define their core purpose and long-term ambition. Then we build all the communications tools they need to express that internally and externally—from names and brand systems to websites to exhibitions.
We also do studio-initiated projects centered around publishing media or designing new products. These can be huge projects that effectively take over our studio (like the Frontier Tuque or Live Magazine) or small activities that allow us to express the studio’s voice (like participating in DesignTO or publishing our newsletter about inspiring stories and people).
We believe this combination of collaboration, content, and product development helps us create better companies, stories, and products because we understand how businesses work from idea to execution. It also makes for a rewarding working environment, because we’re constantly approaching new design challenges and learning from each experience
