Driven by cultural curiosity and a passion for design
A true internationalist at heart, Christophe Dolhem is a Paris-born, award-winning “design architect” who is on a mission to unify a range of disciplines across all touch-points with customers – fuelling sales for his clients. Dividing his time between Asia and Europe, he brings a unique perspective to cross-border assignments in today’s increasingly global world.
From Mathias Dahlgren to top Chinese brands
During his 30-year career, he has developed a track record of delivering results for prominent brands ranging from SEB (banking), Telia (telecom), Skandia (insurance) and Mathias Dahlgren/Grand Hotel (2-star Michelin chef/5-star hotel) to Nathalie Schuterman (Sweden’s leading premium fashion store), Mannheimer Swartling (the leading business law firm in the Nordic region), Jala Group (the leading cosmetic group in China) and Career Australia (Australia’s largest training agency).
Collaborating with senior experts
Educated in France and Sweden, with a background in advertising and as a university teacher in visual communications, he founded Dolhem Design Stockholm in 1997. In 2010, he started a branch of Dolhem design in China and moved to Shanghai where he continued to work for premium Asian and European brands in sectors ranging from high-end fashion to consumer products and services. Today he works as an independent consultant for ambitious brand owners, bringing together a network of manufacturing experts, industrial designers, web specialists, branding experts and designers in a custom-tailored solution for each project. For clients, this means avoiding a junior team and gaining direct access to senior professionals – speeding up the process and minimizes risk.
Strong creative credentials, strong results
Christophe Dolhem has been awarded the Core Design Prize, the World Logo Design Award two times, the Graphis Branding Five Platinum Award and has been nominated for the Cannes Lion award and the Eurobest award. But more than any creative award, he is most proud of the how the design systems he and his team have created are contributing every day to the success of his customers.
