When we decided to establish our firm, back in 1998, we were enthusiastic, full of dreams and only slightly scared, but rather from bureaucracy than from work.
We chose the name Quaderno Corporate Design because there were four of us (quattro>quaderno) and because we wanted to evoke the warmth of a production that starts from scratch on a notebook (quaderno), with a sketch by hand, and that keeps the human being on the foreground —be it the person who inquires, the client, or the person who listens, the designer.
In 2000 we changed the name of the brand to +39 Design Management because our work was opening itself to the world (+39 is Italy’s international phone code) and it was a good way to announce that we, from Italy, were ready to spread our country’s skills and knowledge.
20 years now.
Our 15th anniversary has come a little as a surprise in 2018, since we have been constantly busy taking new challenges. We have not won all of them, but we still do burst with enthusiasm every single time a new challenge shows up around the corner —with a pure, selfless enthusiasm that always prevails.
Here are our ‘first’ 20 years.
