Hortenzia is a full-service design agency delivering creative and strategic outcomes across branding, design, digital, production and communication. With a focus on design, we create opportunities for brands and organisations to distinguish themselves and communicate effectively.
In a constantly evolving media landscape, we work to clarify and simplify communication. We view all of our projects as a collaborative process, and ultimately the best outcomes are produced through a shared vision. Being open minded broadens our opportunities for creativity and innovation, and our philosophies are the basis of our approach to projects.
Design First — The foundation of the work we create is established on a deep respect for the fundamentals of design. Design should establish clarity, create understanding through ease of access and speak to an audience through an informed understanding. Our approach is driven through a technical and uncompromising lens that forgoes ephemeral trends.
Conceptual Thinking — The cornerstone of the work we do as a studio. We value smart design and clever thinking, and we care as much about the immediate communication required from a piece of design as the subtle messaging throughout the design that can equally effectively communicate an idea. This conceptual design is borne through layered thinking – the idea can be simple in style yet communicate vast amounts of ideas.
A Shared Vision — The basis for a solid partnership begins with an understanding that the best outcomes are achieved through mutual respect. Together we form a collaboration where our style, values and beliefs resonate with the outcome you envision. We create brands and designs that aren’t invested in fleeting trends but seek to stand the test of time.
Progression — It is hard to divorce the work of designers from their role in influencing culture. The nature of our work involves changing and updating designs, iterating and improving. And to do that we need to be in tune with the world around us and open to new ideas. Being progressive both socially and in our approach to design gives rise to new ideas and opportunities that result in outcomes that are ahead of the curve.

The work of designers is not impartial to the world around us. Our actions have very real life consequences on society and our natural environment - from excess energy consumption to packaging that finds its way in different ecosystems. But design is about finding a solution to a problem; like designing websites that consume less energy, efficient design solutions that use less materials or working with businesses to lower their carbon footprint. Through considered design, we are initiating the shift towards the future we want to see.
