GHD Partners

At GHD, we work on a wide range of design projects for some of the most respected brands in the world. Over our 20+ year history, we have been a recognized leader in the field of graphic design. We remain engaged with the greater design community in advancing the importance of design and the meaningful role that it plays in people’s everyday lives.

We have become a trusted authority on branding and environmental graphic design in the workplace. In addition, our studio remains committed to its mission to be multidisciplinary, remaining involved in all design disciplines from brand development to interactive media and everything in between.

We take pride in empowering our designers to take an active and contributing role in advancing the interests of the studio and collaborating on client project development. GHD encourages individual professional development and supports efforts by our design staff to participate in constructive educational and industry opportunities.

Our studio celebrates diversity and recognizes the value that every designer can contribute in a truly collaborative environment. The lack of a rigid hierarchical structure in our studio allows our teams to interact freely without the restrictions of a traditional design firm structure.

In our close-knit team, designers tend to stay for relatively long tenures and have the opportunity to grow into larger leadership roles. The studio participates in a number of group activities throughout the year and conducts an annual overnight retreat. Working together in a small studio often leads to friendships and our designers have been known to socialize after work hours.

We are growing. We hope you’ll consider joining the GHD team!
