Open to new ideas, new challenges, new learning, and to criticism – openness is, alongside specialist requirements, one of the most important aspects of the Creative Team’s activity.
The main work of this international team lies in product design, a process that can be summarised in five steps:
Inspiration > the dream
Concept > the idea
Design > taking up the challenge
Technical drawing and specifications > reality check
Prototype and final product > bringing the concept to life
The Creative Team is also responsible for packaging and materials for product presentation, point of sale and window-dressing for boutiques. The team’s involvement from the initial idea to final completion is the only way to accomplish and deliver the complete product package.
Fine design and timeless, classical style are defining values of our brands. The Creative Team is responsible for sustaining this claim and the Montblanc strategy, and ensuring, in conjunction with Category Management and the Production and Purchasing Departments, that work carried out measures up to these values.
Paris, the world capital of luxury and creativity, is the home of designers. From there, they work together directly with the Montblanc European Craftsmanship Centres of Excellence in Hamburg (writing instruments), Le Locle and Villeret (watches), and Florence (leather goods).
Finding new ideas and inspiration while preserving brand identity and values is an exciting challenge in an international environment.
