Our Story

In the stuuuuupidly crowded market we’re in, we wanted to create something more than just a stale agency, something that would have a positive effect around us and also enable us to do some amazing projects that we hold a real passion in. Diony started with two students after leaving education and has excelled from there.

Why 'Diony'?

So, what the hell does Diony mean? Naming can be quite difficult when you’re doing it for yourself, so inspiration is a great help. The origins of where the name comes from, was based around Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, patron of the arts and he was also one of the only gods who could bring people back from the underworld, which fitted the idea of us regenerating certain aspects of companies to revitalise and bring new business for them. All that was left was to shorten in to Diony, and we were ready to go.

For the logo itself, we wanted to create a sense of warmth, familiarity and youthfulness whilst conveying the idea of what Diony is. We love Japanese culture and zen practices such as their amazing calligraphy. One practice is using one or two continuous brush strokes to symbolise elegance, minimalism and enlightenment called an Ensō.

We simplified its rough brush stoke into clean lines using the golden ratio and replaced it over the “o” in Diony. This placement creates a sense of balance between the name, by the way that there’s two letters on either side of the Ensō, with the “Di” pointing upwards and the “ny” pointing downwards, mirroring the balance of creativity and entrepreneurialism within it’s team.
