Johannes Leonardo was created with the belief that we are only at the beginning of a fundamental shift in the way consumers will ultimately engage with brands. Technology is exponentially changing our world and as a result media no longer controls the conversation. Consumers do. Consumers who will only continue to become more empowered. More in control of what they see, more able to spread ideas and bring their own voice to a brand’s message.

Work & Co.
Work & Co makes the digital products people use every day.
Our engineering and design teams are “routinely entrusted with digital product innovation for companies like Apple, Google, Nike, and Facebook, which rarely approach outside firms” (Fast Company, March 2017).
The best digital products require small, senior teams who are hands-on from start to finish. We ask our clients to participate directly in an iterative process based on rapid prototyping, continuous testing, and fewer large meetings. No time sheets, just fully-dedicated teams. Forrester Research calls our approach “a model to follow.”
Our work encompasses graphics and identity, architecture and interiors, products and packaging, exhibitions and installations, websites and digital experiences, advertising and communications. Our nineteen partners are all practicing designers, and whether they are working collaboratively or independently, they always do so in friendship.
The Pentagram team will walk you through the exciting history of the company, sharing some of their favorite projects from over the years. Afterwards, you’ll be able to explore the office, meet the team and ask any questions you may have about life at Pentagram.
