The team

Pentagram is the world’s largest independent design consultancy.

The firm is owned and run by 21 partners who are all leaders in their individual creative fields.

Our team at Pentagram is headed up by Naresh Ramchandani and is currently five people - three writers, an art director and a project manager.

We name companies, we create strategies, we develop verbal identities, we produce communications campaigns and we develop and produce films, often working alongside other design teams at Pentagram. In short, we tackle creative briefs and use words and visuals to connect brands to their audiences in the best possible ways.

We work for a range of commercial clients, including John Lewis & Partners, American Express and Lloyd’s. And we work with social purpose organisations too, including Greenpeace, Fashion for Good and Battersea Dogs and Cats, always working to advance the causes we care about. We also run our environmental charity Do The Green Thing, which releases an Issue every two months challenging the unsustainable status quo through long-form arguments and creative provocations.
