Citizen is a strategic consultancy specialising in branding, built environments and design thinking.

Founded by Jacqueline Morony in 2008, Citizen is a collective of experienced brand, design, architecture and communications specialists with a passion for creating meaningful brand experiences for our clients.

We specialise in working with service industries to uncover new opportunity. From start-ups to large multinationals (and everything in between), we engineer brand and design solutions that help our clients make sense of their business offering and brand portfolio.

But what really makes us tick is solving business problems and supporting organisational change through the filter of brand and design. 

Our design philosophy is underpinned by a few simple principles: 
Great brands understand their people (the ‘citizens’ who are their internal and external audiences).
Great brands are built on great stories. 
Great brands have a powerful reason for being and a strong sense of purpose.
Great brands think from the perspective of their end-user.
Great brands align their architecture to the way consumers think.
Great brands embrace change as a chance for new opportunity.
Great brands are open to possibility and imagination.
