ABOUT

ABOUT

Good design speaks its own language: a language shaped by distinctive brands and by products with unique aesthetics, functionality and sustainability. What’s needed, from the very first idea to establishing a brand or product in the marketplace, is a great deal of dedication, courage and conviction – and the right partner. We at welcome design are fluent in this special language and we are able to communicate it with a great deal of passion, thanks to longstanding experience in strategic PR, in developing and implementing tailored communication concepts and in providing consultancy services to establish both brands and new products in the areas of design and architecture.

Strategic Public Relations.

Welcome design specialises in strategic PR in the areas of design and architecture. We offer the complete service package, comprising development and implementation of PR and marketing strategies, targeting of individual and influential journalists and opinion shapers, management and implementation of press events, looking after media representatives at trade fairs and other events, media monitoring, inclusion of modern communication channels and maintenance of online press sections.

Individual Communication Concepts.

At the core of every successful – and hence goal-directed – corporate communication is a tailored PR and communication concept where every detail has been considered carefully. In close cooperation with our clients, we develop individual and convincing communication concepts, starting with the first briefing, to researching and analysing the specific market, to defining target groups and communication goals and to planning and implementing measures.

Copy Production.

With our longstanding experience and specialist knowledge, we support our clients in concept development, in the production of catalogues or publications on design or architecture-related themes and in creating copy for marketing and press communication.

13 October 2016. Richard Lampert invites to Orgatec 2016.

According to the motto ‚Let’s stick together’ Richard Lampert presents a new, non-flammable seating furniture made out of gypsum fiberboards at Orgatec 2016.

Pip (design: Daniel Kern) is based on a playful idea: frames, seating surfaces and backrests can be combined arbitrary with the hardly inflammable upholstered parts. The results of the various combinations are single-seaters, two-seaters, three-seaters and benches, which may change the direction of seating ‚on the way’, are built back-to-back or work without backrests.
