KesselsGranger DesignWorks was founded after Steven Kessels and James Granger graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven. From a close friendship they developed a successful company with an impressive portfolio.
Their mutual interests in art and design formed the base of a close friendship. Steven Kessels and James Granger have a drive for the design of beautiful products. Designs of KesselsGranger DesignWorks have an emotional value, can be produced cost-effectively and are functional in use.

The goal is to advise and help entrepreneurs in the field of product development and to improve products in order to increase turnover and thereby increase the value of their business. Alongside this, KesselsGranger DesignWorks is strong in the field of graphic design, projects whereby the entrepreneur receives beautiful graphics to support their success stories.

KesselsGranger DesignWorks has developed a broad scale of projects in diverse markets such as automotive, maritime, lifestyle, musical instruments and architecture. KesselsGranger DesignWorks has hereby built up considerable experience in diverse markets. This broad expertise strengthens the aim to think quickly and out-of-the-box in order to generate exceptionally individual ideas.

Alongside product development, which includes the development of new products, the development of a redesign or a makeover, KesselsGranger DesignWorks also creates graphic design, such as the design of logos, brochures and illustrations for presentations. Last but not least, KesselsGranger DesignWorks advises companies and organisations in the area of design strategy to develop practical and innovative solutions that help the entrepreneur to innovate.

Every entrepreneur is welcome at KesselsGranger DesignWorks, from starting entrepreneurs to fully established organisations.

The client is central. With a studio in Belgian Limburg, KesselsGranger DesignWorks is close to the entrepreneur. Success, involvement and continuity result in long-term client relations.

You are welcome to informally get in touch with KesselsGranger DesignWorks. This can be at your location, or at the studio of KesselsGranger DesignWorks at the creative site of C-mine in Genk.
