NEIGHBOURHOOD PRODUCT DESIGNERS.
Founded in 2018 by Alex Nagel and Ryan Day, we are ANCORD Design Co, an industrial design studio that believes intelligent design and meaningful solutions beat aesthetics every damn time. Thanks to a shared childhood obsession with engines and RPMs, our paths first crossed in Toronto in the Humber College automotive studio while studying Industrial Design. But we quickly realized our fervour for design ran deeper than door handles and rear-view mirrors.
Fast-forward to the West Coast, where we re-rooted and reconnected after years exploring the depths of design. With 35+ years of combined professional experience, we were inspired by Vancouver Island’s natural beauty and shared a new obsession: Designing thoughtful, everyday products that solve your business’ biggest problems—and respect and protect this planet. Because we’ve only got the one. And so, ANCORD was born.

The value is in what gets used, not what gets built.
