When architect Philippos Photiadis, product designer Sergios Fotiadis and graphic artist Theano Petridou joined forces to establish We Design, they chose a name to describe their collective passion to design anything. Since 2001, this savvy group of three have expanded to collaborate with local typographers, engineers and manufacturers, fulfilling everything from corporate branding briefs to interior fit outs.

Their interest moved into redefining the concept of souvenirs, leading them to establish Greece Revisited, a line of products drawing from Greek history, tradition and everyday culture. Striking a balance between concept and functionality, We Design have successfully revitalised Greek souvenirs allowing visitors and lovers of Greece to take away functional keepsakes for the home or office, that evoke fond memories of Greece.
