Our team. Our motivation. And you.
Founded by Industrial Designers Nick Kazakoff and Brendan Gallagher, onetwosix is a design agency with a growing team of artists, researchers, designers and builders working to give form to your ideas.
Based in Western Canada, we regularly work with clients across Canada and the USA. From businesses in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, and San Francisco to Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and New York - we turn great ideas into beautiful and functional products that can be manufactured efficiently and cost effectively. It is our approach based in research, prototyping, learning, and improvement, that differentiates us from other design firms.
Our extensive in-house capabilities include a fully equipped fabrication shop, 3D printers, CNC mills and other various prototyping tools, allowing us to rapidly iterate and test designs -- reducing long lead times and ensuring quality.
At onetwosix we are incredibly dedicated to what we do. Design is our obsession. Let us share that passion with you.
Our values are at the core of what we do.
Ask questions, test assumptions and dissect the details. It is in the process of being critical and identifying problems that we can generate solutions and find the values that will make a design successful.
Tell a unique and captivating story. We work to communicate the development of designs through moodboards, sketches, models, renders and prototypes – choosing the most effective formats for each situation.
Take calculated risks, it’s how you deliver something different and desirable. By challenging established methods and ideas we can deliver better products, memorable interactions, and improve lives.
The power of collaboration.
We become creative partners with our clients, working with them to deliver quality results on time and on budget without sacrificing design vision or integrity. The range of projects we take on and the partnerships we form are a reflection of the values of our company. From electronics enclosures, phone booths, and medical products, to signage, graphics, and wayfinding -- to us industrial design is as much about the journey as it is about the finished product.
No matter how far along you are in the design process, we offer services to make your life easier. Whether you are starting a new venture or you are an established company looking to expand your line or change your brand we would love to hear from you.
