Us

 

TEAMS Design has had the great luck to work on incredible projects that have earned over 1000 design awards for clients like House of Marley, NRG, Bosch, Siemens, and Chrysler. With offices in the US, Germany, China, and Serbia, we like to think of ourselves as internationally local, and we give our team members the opportunity to interact with and travel to our other studios.

 

The Chicago studio is a creative environment in a natural light-filled, open brick loft with a great view of the city's famous skyline. Centrally located in West Town, we’re nestled in the middle of a creative warehouse neighborhood that's home to art and design studios, architectural salvage stores, and two pro sports teams. We enjoy biking to work, caffeinated beverages, and competitive lunchtime foosball in a pet-friendly environment.
