An insightful look at the work, mindset, and methodology of the global branding and design agency headed by Monocle founder Tyler Brûlé.
Winkreative is the global design, brand identity, and consulting agency of Tyler Brûlé, the founder of Wallpaper* magazine and Monocle.
Winkreative Design Stories is a journey through the history of this agency, which in only a short time has established itself as one of the most sought-after addresses for corporate design and branding in the world. Highlighting a selection of projects from relaunching national carrier Swiss International Air Lines to rebranding Thailand as a magnet for international business, the book spans several continents and an impressive roster of premium clients.
Divided into the core themes of Charm, Craft, Intelligence, Clarity, and Storytelling, each chapter of the book showcases a set of projects sharing that characteristic, alongside short, conversational pieces, which offer insight into the thinking and skill behind Winkreative’s huge diversity of work, revealing the culture of the agency itself.
Still life photography displays Winkreative’s unique perspective and distinctive aesthetic sensibility, while comic illustrations and reportage shoots inject a sense of playfulness and bring Winkreative’s history and people to life.
Winkreative Design Stories is a warm, understated reference book produced with outstanding production quality. Because there have been few published documentations of the agency’s work in the past, this design treatise provides a unique perspective at the intersection of craft and commerce for design influencers and creatives, and business figures and policymakers alike.
Winkreative is distinguished by its international focus, editorial authority, and unique, interdisciplinary approach to branding. With 50 multilingual staff, it serves more than 40 clients in 15-plus countries, all of which are united by premium positions in their respective markets. Founded by Tyler Brûlé in 1998, Winkreative continues to evolve as a unique, multidisciplinary global agency, focused on translating real-world business plans into creative brand expressions.
