With a slogan that reads “Design that counts”, Raffinerie was founded in Zürich in 2000 and is led by three creative directors: Reto Ehrbar, Christian Hass and Nenad Kovačić. The task they have given themselves is to “create smart design solutions for organisations, firms, start-ups and everyone else”, providing a comprehensive package of support and consultancy services related to graphic design that range from art direction and corporate design to publication design and illustration, based on a mindset that goes “from print to web, or wherever our ideas might take us”. Raffinerie now employs an in-house team of 15 designers, who follow every project with curiosity and dedication, from the general outline idea to the tiniest detail. In 2016, the office won a double award at the tenth edition of the European Design Awards held in Vienna: Agency of the Year and Best of Show. This was the first time in the history of the EDA that one office has come away with the two leading awards, while also winning the Best of Show for the second time.
