WELCOME TO TANDEM DESIGN

Specialising in branding, print design, packaging and illustration, working for massive multinationals to inspiring
start-ups from Hampshire to Helsinki since 1977.

ABOUT

Founded in 1977, Tandem Design is based in Southampton. Our offices are 10 minutes from the airport and just over an hour from central London. Although things have changed a little since 1977, founding director Colin Bowler has remained at the forefront and is looking forward to peddling Tandem into its fourth decade.

We like to build long-term business relationships with our clients, ensuring productivity, reliabiltiy, punctuality and a higher level of understanding between us and the clients. Responding to the ever changing design industry is known mean feat but with our network of trusted partners and suppliers we are able to ensure a high level of service together with strong creative content.

Tandem’s clients have ranged from massive multinationals to inspiring start-ups, from Hampshire to Helsinki and our base is ever growing. We specialise in branding, print, packaging and illustration and have worked in a wide range of industry including retail, technology, media and publishing.

We are unable to provide artwork speculatively. If you invite us to tender for a job we will charge for artwork at our going rate. We think it is better for business and creates a fairer foundation for an ongoing relationship and we hope you agree! If you have any questions about this, please get in touch.
