WHO WE ARE

Our approach is an endless journey.
We explore to design dynamic identity systems.
So, we design.

Founded in Rome in 2010 by Creative Director Emanuele Cappelli, Cappelli Identity Design is a strategic design studio that operates worldwide and in 2021 has opened a new office in Torino in the European OGR Tech innovation hub.

Thanks to the two departments of Design and Strategy – two visions that work in parallel by influencing and interacting with each other – we design multidisciplinary projects from brand identity to marketing strategies and integrated communication.

Values and people make Cappelli Identity Design studio a place of continuous exchanges and contamination, but what distinguishes it from the others is its method. Dynamic brand is a new way of design, it comes from the relationship between space and time and it aims to build up a dialogue with people by communicating the brand’s identity and its changing nature. In 2022 all of this became a book published by Skira.

VALUES

Social
sustainability

RUFA CONTEST FRANCIS KERE
Every human action is a mark on the environment and society. Cappelli Identity Design supports a sustainable approach towards the environment, both socially and emotionally. A daily commitment that participates in the respect of a fair and democratic system.

Integration

Cappelli Identity Design is populated with different people, identities, and cultures that together design a liquid corpus, fluid yet disciplined one, always open to contamination, and an integrated development.

Research

RUFA CONTEST SHIRIN NESHAT
Cappelli Identity Design promotes design and its project-oriented, technical and cultural development through the research, which is aimed to support experimental, innovative and inclusive activities.
the dynamic brand

Values and people make Cappelli Identity Design studio a place of continuous exchanges and contamination, but what distinguishes it from the others is its method. Dynamic brand is a new way of design, it comes from the relationship between space and time and it aims to build up a dialogue with people by communicating the brand’s identity and its changing nature. What is achieved is a strong and coherent identity system, with such distinctive features that it works perfectly even without a logo. Thanks to Dynamic brand, the vertical scheme no longer exists, the architecture of communication becomes integrated.

In 2022 all of this
became a book
published by Skira.
