Pentagram is a design firm. It was founded in 1972, by Alan Fletcher, Theo Crosby, Colin Forbes, Kenneth Grange and Mervyn Kurlansky at Needham Road, Notting Hill, London. The company has offices located at London, New York City, San Francisco, Austin and Berlin.
Pentagram is the world’s largest independent design consultancy. The firm is currently owned and run by 21 partners a group of friends who are all leaders in their individual fields. They design architecture and interiors, books, branding and identities, digital installations, exhibitions, films, products, posters, and websites from offices in London, New York, San Francisco, Berlin and Austin.
Each of our clients works directly with one or more of our partners. This reflects our conviction that great design cannot happen without passion, intelligence, and personal commitment, which is demonstrated by a portfolio of work that spans five decades.
For me their work stands out for its simplicity and their ability to create an instantly recognizable identity for their clients. The Pentagram team has collaborated closely with the MasterCard, DC Entertainment, Eurosport, 20th Century Fox and even the design for the Harry Potter spin off Fantastic beasts and where to find them and Saturday Night Live’s 40th Season opening.
