Landor was established in 1941 by Walter Landor, who in 1964 transferred the main office on board the ferryboat Klamath in San Francisco Bay, where it soon became a magnet for creativity, attracting visits from people like Andy Warhol, Tom Wolfe, Issey Miyake and Marshall McLuhan. At that time, the agency pioneered many of the research approaches, solutions and methods that have now become standard for branding. Landor is now an agency with 29 offices in 21 countries worldwide that work to partner with top global brands, including Aeroflot, Bayer, BBC, BMP, BP, Citroën, Danone, Etihad Airways, the International Hotels Group, Procter & Gamble, the Russian Copper Company and the Tata Group. The agency offers a wide range of services, from strategy, positioning, corporate identity and brand architecture to prototyping, naming, verbal identity, environments, experiences and engagement, interactive and media design. Landor is part of the Young & Rubicam Group, which belongs to the holding company WPP, the world’s largest marketing and communication concern.
