Initially conspired in Berlin some 15 years ago Swiss+German designers Roger and Stefan founded Envary 2012 in Hong Kong. Rooted in various creative backgrounds the duo strives to blend their different influences into meaningful yet bold work. With a multilateral in-house team plus a group of global creatives we unite expertise in product design development, branding, UX, innovation technologies, design for manufacturing and strategic design thinking for business or brands.
We are a nimble band of designers & strategists taking on projects or whole ventures
Powered by its crafty workshop mentality our multi-disciplinary team evolves ideas from vision to delightful reality
Lined by an 18 feet ideation wall our studio space is all-around set up to take ideas into reality. Getting physical with tools, materials and mockups on two work benches, extensively using our material library or sketching designs on large ash wood tables is an essential part of our design process. Founders Roger and Stefan are always knee-deep involved. Driven by transformative and non-formularic concepts, we believe in outcomes designed iconically and with 21st century users in mind.
Our name is our credo: Diversely exploring a variation of views as in form, appearance or function, we take ideas into reality, yet diverge beyond the ordinary.

A Berlin original Stefan combines funky vibes & creativity without boundaries.

With unstoppable thirst for punchy record covers and eclectic campaign shoots Stefan soon cruised into graphic design. At Envary he is juxtaposing everything visual, including graphic art direction, photography or branding. Stefan is nuts about yummy chocolate cookies and spaceships, always eager to spin new ideas.

Hitting technical solutions spot on is one trait, but Ethan’s best minutes come when aiming his NERF toy guns with good rock music. Grown up in the snow-ridden areas of Northern China’s ice city Harbin, Ethan is naturally a football fan (best would be a combination of Manu + Arsenal). Fascinated by Italian product design and human-like robots, our technical ace also mans up the playing field of manufacturing technologies to a fair outcome for customers’ and client’s budgets.

Always keen to focus his camera lens to bring new views to neat details, Andy sees reality under a different light. Thrilled by the tangible/touchable ways of concept development, he is our team’s daring craftsman. Although growing up in busy Hong Kong exposes one to much eye candy, its the authentic objects that fascinate him. Heartily involved in materialising mockups and design sketches, Andy is always full head into when things get physical.
Leaving no stones unturned, we rethink design in context to people & brands. We navigate clients through projects, co-creating closely with their teams.
