Wir machen Marken merkwürdig
We make brands stand out.
daHeim is more than a name. It’s a philosophy: you’re at home here. Trust and partnership are on an equal footing. We maintain this attitude towards our clients as well as to our partners and team members. It’s about values. We’re united by one thing in particular: passion for corporate design. The way there begins with listening. Where is the client from, where is he going? Give us information about your strengths as well as your weaknesses. We’ll find your individual approach and will turn it into a strong, unique image. With dedication, skill and perfection.
Brands are like people for us. We want to understand your personality and to share your values. Then we’ll be able to advise you wisely and work with you confidentially. We convert what we learn into strategy, positioning and design. The brand always commits, never the current trend. In this way, names, slogans and images arise, in short: corporate designs which make an impression. We give them an image – in analogue as well as digital media. In this way, we bring your brand into the present with the necessary sensitivity and realign it for the long term.
We make your strategy, your product, your story and the people behind them visible – with words, fonts, colours, shapes and images. We’re driven by ideas, courage and creativity. A fresh look at your company helps us to assess the details and to merge them into a distinctive design. As full-blooded designers we are excited by new fields. The result is full service for all senses and goes far beyond website design. At the best you’ll experience us as visual story tellers for your brand, too.
daHeim headed by Volker Heim develops your own brand with you. It assists you every step of the way: defining the brand, finding a name and with fundamental, strategic decisions. We bring your unique story to light during intensive talks and workshops and transform it into an exceptional design. Volker Heim acts as team leader and provides trustworthy partners who help you fulfil your individual requirements cross media.
For some I’m the customer care representative, for others the strategic-creative mind of daHeim. In all events, I’m your navigator on the way to your own brand: regarding content, design and organisation. One-stop shop, that’s my credo. I act in your best interests, spur things on within the team and give you and your brand long-term assistance. I’ve got fire in my belly. And it’s an added bonus for me that I’ve found people to share my passion.
Creation & Text
daHeim I’m the artist among the creative. I like to develop my ideas freely and cut loose from fixed structures. I appreciate the power of the right words and enjoy playing a background role as a creative source of inspiration and am a loyal co-thinker when dreaming up names and slogans. My work in the emergency services has taught me how important it is to savour the moment. That’s why, I’m devoting most of my time now, to our three boys who are the centre of our world.
Creation & conception
I’m an old hand daHeim. I’ve been dealing with brands and their authentic presentation in diverse media for over 25 years. As founder and managing director of the brand agency sons in Kempten I can fall back on a treasure trove of experience. Harmonising strategy and creativity with the individual strengths of the client, calls for a high degree of empathy. Last but not least, I’ve been able to broaden my emphatic skills further, by studying cross culture communications.
UX/UI-Design & CMS Development
As a passionate autodidact I’m the digital motor of daHeim. I advance the technological view in digital media day by day. Whether in the implementation of websites, digital brand presence or app development. I feel as good as a fish in water online. As an aesthete who’s obsessed with detail, I’m not satisfied until design and source code, harmonise perfectly and are a little bit ahead.
Text & PR
I take care of plain speaking. Language – whether read or heard – is one of the most powerful instruments inside an image. Information is not only conveyed about words and their tonality but also values and visions. I want to listen, understand and touch the clients of the clients. Clear. Simple. Remarkable.
Screen design & e commerce
I close the gap between analogue and digital. At home in both worlds, I always see corporate design as the big picture. Not until the cogwheels interlock perfectly is the brand identity an overall experience. This philosophy doesn’t only need many hands to knuckle down. Besides a trusting network it needs shared knowledge. Because we only learn from each other.
Illustration & photography
I design visual visions for daHeim. Whether it’s about the presentation of a company or the graphic sketches for a conceptual approach. An illustration conveys the power of an idea to me. Emotional and boundless. However, a clear objective is needed to make skill out of art. The playing field must be clearly pegged out so that creativity can reach its full potential. In the end, the picture will say more than 1,000 words. And the illustration, anyway.
Photography & film
I hold on to moments for daHeim. Whether as emotional moving images or brand specific key visual. Transforming a brand, its character and the people behind it into a picture, is a unique challenge. If creative design, clear strategy and passionate handcraft come into congruence in a shooting, visual story telling becomes reality.
Design & Layout
I’m like a Swiss penknife for daHeim. I’m versatile being equipped with the finest compositional technique, an eye for good artisanal design, perfect final draughting and quality-orientated production knowledge. I want to learn and contribute. And at the end of the day make the world a bit more beautiful.
Text & conception
daHeim I’m the champion of ideas. The idea, on which everything is built: the advertising campaign, the corporate claim, direct mailing or the company film. Strong ideas make communication interesting in the first place. It motivates me to utilise my competence whether in the business- to- business sector or in the consumer sector. As regards content, I particularly enjoy finding solutions for complex themes which are easy and comprehensible to convey.
Movement therapist & stress blocker
As a snow white beauty, I take care of the creative pause for thought daHeim. I go unusual ways with the whole family, on the lookout for good ideas, and I regularly call in on my Italian homeland.
A creative agency in the literal sense, a perfect match for us: imaginative, versatile, innovative. Whether creating a logo, slogan, business report or brochure daHeim Markendesign has actively supported us at all times. Thanks a lot!

The fact that the entire process is always carried out with a good dose of humour and self-irony makes working with him even more rewarding.
Working with Volker is always rewarding and a guarantee for success.

No matter whether for the caterer round the corner or the medium-sized business — we always land on target with every project due to good tactics and approachable communication.
We work very closely with Volker Heim on mutual customer projects. There are several reasons why we have such a good, working relationship: on the one hand, it’s due to the professional expertise daheim.design brings to the table, on the other hand it’s because of Volker’s commitment and dependability. This is of utmost importance not only for customers, but also for successful teamwork. And then, of course, it’s all down to the basic philosophy and attitude that Volker exudes. What more can you say … You just feel daHeim ;-)
