Founded in 2000, Gigodesign is one of the leading Slovene design firms specialised in industrial design, visual communication, web design, service design, and communication strategies. Providing a systematic approach to complex problems, its interdisciplinary design and consultancy work covers new product development and packaging, graphic representation, corporate identity, exhibition and retail design, branding, design management, and marketing strategies. Located in Ljubljana, its international clients include Yellow Cab, Hermes SoftLab, Jägermeister, Central European Presidential Summit, SONY, HIT Casinos, Studio Moderna, Intralighting, Saab, Xerox, and ELAN, among others.

Gigodesign is an award-winning studio, counting prestigious Red Dot Design Awards, and several other international prizes and honourable mentions, including EPICA, DesignPreis, +x Award, as well as the Brumen and BIO Award. The team has successfully realised over 240 complex projects for more than 60 clients. In 2008 Gigodesign designed a new corporate identity for the Biennial of Industrial Design (BIO) event, redesigning the BIO awards as well. In 2009 the studio won the public competition to design the new corporate image for Slovenia's public administration.


Work

A colourful palette of work has come out of the hands of this creative collective from typography, information graphics, corporate identity, posters, publications, magazines, and newspapers to interactive design, product design, packaging design, exhibition design, and advertisements. Through the search for different graphic solutions the Gigofonts library of different typefaces for various design needs has been built. A wide range of products include the packaging for distribution of orchids, and the folding city bike Bigfish.

The work of Gigodesign covers many cultural events: the exhibition designs for the Biennial of Slovene Visual Communications and the International Design Event, the web design of the Exodos International Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts, the annual posters for the Druga Godba Festival, the visual identity and the trophy for the Intercontinental Advertising CUP, and the information design for the Festival of Slovenian Film.

Awards

Some of the most distinguished awards include National Design Awards – Designer of the year 2007, Piranesi Award 2004 for the Bell of Reconciliation memorial post, the Golden Drum Award, Print, Communication Arts, DIDA, EPICA, and several competition winning entries. Gigodesign was honoured the ICOGRADA Excellence Award at the 20th Biennial of Industrial Design (BIO) for HIT corporate visual identity.

International Red Dot Product Design Awards were granted to Gigodesign for the Elan skis SLX WaveFlex Race, the casement window Unisash Arx View produced by Kovinoplastika Lož, and the folding urban space chair Sitty, placed outside the Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture. The Arx View window system concept also received the Gold Award for National Best Innovation 2008, bestowed by Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia (GZS).
