Pasadena is an award winning graphic design studio located in Stockholm. We believe in the power of good design and strong ideas.

About

Pasadenas main focus is editorial design and visual identities and our clients are primarily found within the cultural and nonprofit sectors. Apart from doing graphic design we are greatly experienced in running and managing projects as well as working editorially. At Pasadena we also develop self-initiated projects such as the equality game Komma Lika, the randomized magazine Bänken, the poster book Nyktra Former and the series of talks Feministisk Formbar. Pasadena was founded in 2009 by art directors Anton Hull and Maria Loohufvud.

How we work

To Pasadena design goes beyond the visible surface. As we undertake a project we do a thorough research along with an analysis of the assignment and its conditions in order to find a strong concept. When doing the graphic design a great emphasis is placed on choice of materials, usability and details, to ultimately create a product that exceeds the client’s expectations.

Allow us to be a part of the process from an early stage. If the project demands it we bring in the competence necessary and cooperate with other people within our creative network.

To Pasadena working feministic and norm critic is important. In practice this means that we, for example, choose images with care and that we always try to find a variety amongst the people that we cooperate with.
