Holiday greetings across the world

December 19, 2018

In the spirit of love – and care for the future

December is the time when we take a breather and look back at the year we’ve had. This year was particularly exciting since we had wonderful new team members joining us from the UK and Paris!

We are also entering Idean’s 20th Anniversary year – Idean was founded in 1999 – which brings us back to our roots and reminds us of what really matters for the #next20years.

Here’s what our Studios across the world would like to share with you (from East to West):


Finland

As the founding country of Idean, we’re preparing to celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2019. In this spirit, we began to consider the values that enable and drive us to create innovations for the next 20 years. With this thought in mind, we went to the very center of human-centered needs – breathing.

This year, our Christmas present for our clients and colleagues is a tree from a Finnish forest for everyone. We want to create a sustainable future for the next generations, and we’re starting that right now.

If you’d like to join us by focusing on our future, sign up by emailing us.

Mikko-Pekka Hanski, Head of Studio Finland

Norway

In an attempt to keep a slowly fading Christmas tradition alive, we sent out (physical) Christmas cards to all of our clients, partners, collaborators, friends, and enemies! Being digital all of the time is a bit of a bore, and Christmas is all about sensing and feeling. And for that, nothing beats a properly printed card with lots of colors and the unmistakable smell of offset ink. Merry Christmas from snowy Norway!

Thordur Arnason, Head of Agency Norway

UK

What a ride!

2018 was a big year: we joined forces, grew in numbers and added a whole new floor to our studio.

Along the way, we’ve made new friends and clients and been lucky enough to work on some huge projects.

Thanks for coming with us - and thanks for being part of our extended Idean family.

Let’s see where we go in 2019!

James Haycock, General Manager UK

New York

Peace, love and joy are what the holiday season brings - and here at Idean New York, our hope is to keep that spirit alive and kicking in the new year, when we’d love to show you how design can help you succeed in 2019!

Chirryl-Lee Ryan, Head of Studio New York

California

This holiday season, we are celebrating the gift of transformation. We evolved human connections, moved into a new office space, made a lot of new friends, and pushed projects to new limits. We are zooming out to what matters most – people, design, and a little time off to think about how to be an even better Idean in 2019. We raise our glasses to another great year – Happy Holidays from West Coast Idean!

Linda Angela Hoecker, Head of Studio West Coast
