Dedicated to holistic branding plus high-style communication arts, Drezier provides multi-discipline creative and design services, from conception to implementation seamlessly. Besides we administer outside-the-box responsive strategies. Above all, we craft problem-solving bespoke deliverables.
Drezier Communications is a tiny design studio based in a small place called Hong Kong. But we are willing to stretch outward. For instance, we have already attained recognition in many international awards. Drezier always wants to try different projects, just like many other design studios. Similarly, we also target to advance ourselves in aesthetics. In Hong Kong, no difference to the world, we are now converging our efforts in corporate social responsibility. In a board sense, aesthetics is to build a better world.
Hong Kong Design Studio – Branding & Re-branding
Founded in 2005, Drezier Communications was already a reformist design studio. Gradually, we engaged ourselves in the fashion industry of Hong Kong. We tailor our branding deliverables in style and projects of imaging with flair, adapting to environments as well as constraints. In 2007, we extended our hands further to New York and other cities. At present, Drezier has already branded or re-branded tens of brands, mostly in fashion retailing, based in Hong Kong, Greater New York and many other places.
From 2016 onward, Drezier relocates permanently our design studio back to our base and lovely hometown, Hong Kong. We pledge to help the local – solely and wholeheartedly.
