The Design Bar is a visual design studio founded by designer Nikos Kosmadakis. It specializes in corporate identity, publication and website design. We provide bespoke solutions in print and digital applications of branding.

Brand Identity

Communication through design is a vital part of business growth. We provide visual identity services for brands of all sizes. Our capabilities span the entire process from early logotype design to final execution of printed material and digital development of a brand image that communicates the brand’s values and remains constant across all media.

Researching the brand and the its market is the first step in the process of designing its visual image. Idea development comes next, and the first designs of the logotype are created. Once the logotype is finalized, the basic assets of the corporate identity are designed. Such assets are business cards, letterheads, envelopes and folders. The rest of the visual communication material can include, company brochures, icon systems, product catalogues, signage, advertising, digital applications and other promotional material such as adverting gifts.

Website design & development

Proper analysis of the content, information architecture and organization is the first step in creating a successful website.

Every project is coded using the right technology with performance in mind whether it’s a presentation website, e-shop or other, ensuring correct responsive appearance on all devices. The final result is a website that reflects the brand’s identity, while promoting the business online.
