Studio Thomas Cassander VWA (Svendborg, DK) is a small but agile multidiciplinary design studio, primarily working with conceptual strategy, graphic, digital and spacial design across all platforms/touchpoints, — from visual identity and packaging to books, spacial environment and creative digital solutions.
The studio helps, guides and collaborates, primarily in on-going close-nit collaborative partnerships, with its clients and partners to craft and tell their story and messages clearly and elegantly across all touchpoints, small and large-scale.
With a tight–knit weave of creative strategy, conception and craft, the studio seeks to create bright and straight-forward brand communication and graphic design that is progressive, attractive and clear as a whistle, in today's increasingly hyper-mediated reality.
Studio Thomas Cassander works closely with its clients at every stage of the process, from agreeing and exploring the brief, through the conceptual design process and visual prototyping – always sharing and discussing multiple creative directions, to the careful crafting and fine tuning involved implementation and realisation.
Key services range from full-scale identity and design concept development to working closely with suppliers to oversee execution, and everything in-between initial brief interpretation and design rollout.
Capabilities & Specialism:
Projectmanagement & Art Direction
Clear and vibrant design concept development mixed with just the right pinch of strategy, excecution and functionality.
Visual identity & Design Concept

Graphics and illustrative visuals which makes sense, ease-of-use, and clarity of the complex.
Approach & Values
The approach to projects is always based on a strong foundation in true curiousity, conceptual integrity, principle-led design, intuitive insight and vibrant visual simplicity.
The studio focuses on creating genuine attraction and value by fusing storytelling, craft, strategic opportunity and unconventional visual design to develop and grow strong identity and design solutions, regardless of budget or project scale.
The studio only implements and applicates selective modern, versatile & adaptive digital platforms and information architecture that suits and empowers the short and long-term goals of the individual client/project.
Most of the studio’s tools, apps and files is based in “The Cloud” and shared with clients and surpliers via digital “cloud services” or “sass solutions”, so remote development and collaboration with clients and surpliers is possible without difficulty.
