Pentagram Partner Hangs Out His Own Shingle


Big news today from one of the world’s leading independent design agencies: Longtime Pentagram partner and 2004 AIGA Medalist Kit Hinrichs is establishing his own Studio Hinrichs in San Francisco.

Hinrichs departs Pentagram after 23 years, a tenure that produced award-winning work for clients like California Academy of Sciences, Muzak, Sappi Fine Paper, Gymboree and Design Within Reach.

Hinrichs is also teaming with his writing collaborator Delphine Hirasuna and creating a sideline
business called Hinrichs + Hirasuna Special Projects, which will focus on projects of personal and professional interest.

From a press release:

“While I will miss the creative collaboration within Pentagram,” says Hinrichs, “I’m excited by the possibilities presented in what I consider the third chapter of my career. I look forward to building on all that I’ve learned and ensuring that my best work is still to come.”
