Both Vienna as a city and various companies and entrepreneurs who call it their home, managed to stand out throughout the years through branding and design. On our Branding and Design secrets in Vienna, we tell their stories and share their valuable lessons.
If you want to stand out and have something to say, you need good design! Join us on a journey through 2000 years of design history in Vienna that will show you exactly that! We will examine how Roman wall paintings or Habsburg monuments conveyed key messages of power. We will also hear the stories of local brands, designers and entrepreneurs who utilise branding to make their products and services world renowned.
Book our unique “Branding and design secrets in Vienna” tour to get useful and relevant insights about marketing, positioning and the practice of creating one’s image.

Whether you are a marketing team, a design firm or just an entrepreneurship enthusiast, this tour is for you.
This one of a kind branding and design tour will surely open the eyes of your team, guests or students. It is perfect for your next team building activity, professional conference, school excursion or private event as it will not only be entertaining but also thought provoking.
What can you expect when booking our branding and design tour:
On our “In the Footsteps of Greatness” tour series, we aim to dive deeper into history and derive conclusions that can serve as life lessons. Instead of focusing on the “what”, we focus on the “how” and the “why” for a more profound experience.
In our eyes, every historical figure can serve as a mentor if we only walk in their footsteps. It can tell us what to do, how to think as well as what to avoid. For teams, learning from brands, designers and creators can bring a new and unique perspective. It can show that we have a lot in common with many of history’s greatest figures. They, like us, needed to create a strong brand image. They too used common marketing practices for their business as well as applied design elements to stand out. We are convinced that the added value of this tour will go even beyond our regular, fascinating walking tours in Vienna.
