In 1996, Carsten Scholtysik founded Scholtysik Identity in Basel. The young firm was soon entrusted with notable accounts (UBS, Carl F. Bucherer, FREITAG). With the arrival of further associates the agency was renamed Scholtysik Niederberger Kraft. In 2002, Denise Delémont and Fabian Sander joined the agency and opened the new branch in Zurich. The agency went on to become one of the relevant branding agencies in Switzerland.

2012 brought big changes to the team: Carsten broke with his former associates and formed Scholtysik & Partner with Denise Delémont and Fabian Sander. In 2016 Lukas Staudenmann becomes equal partner in the agency. Right from the beginning Scholtysik & Partner focused on strategic branding and embraced the opportunities of digital transformation.

Scholtysik won prominent new accounts in the financial industry (Bank Cler, Basler Kantonalbank, Harald Quandt Family Holding, HQ Capital, HQ Trust), in digital business (SwissID, AutoScout24, ImmoScout24, digihyp, Allthings) and in the public sector (SBB, Swiss Post, Swissgrid, Federal Department of Home Affairs, University of Basel, City of Zurich). The team was consequently built up in a highly interdisciplinary fashion combining strategy consulting, communication, customer experience, user experience, graphic design, motion design, interface design, digital and social branding.


Our work has been honored with multiple awards in the fields of branding, rebranding, visual design, sound design and exhibition design.
