How to Create Good Design Team Names

Creating a design team name might be the right option for your team if you want something more personal that reflects each member. Keep the following tips in mind while brainstorming:

  • Think of your favorite element(s) of design. You’re probably familiar with the basic elements of design — color, texture, space, scale, etc. — and going back to these basics can be an excellent way to find the perfect team name. Reference the element itself or make a shortlist based on it; if you love color, for instance, make a list of your favorite colors or color combinations.
  • Consider your team’s style. Does your team favor retro designs, or are their sensibilities ultra-modern? Even if you don’t reference a particular style directly, you can use your team’s style as inspiration for your name. For example, a retro-influenced team might get its name from a vintage typeface or a popular color from a past era, such as sage green.
  • Choose a name with a message. Whether your team works directly with clients to create custom designs or takes on assigned projects, your name can send a message to those who will view your work. Words like “upscale” or “classic” will give an idea of what people can expect from your work before they even see it.
