At its core, Tale Notation is the combined power of more than 20 years of expertise in transportation design by leading professionals in the field that aim to shape the future of customer-centric transportation design.

Notation and Tale’s designers possess a deep understanding in the design of train exteriors and interiors after leading significant projects in the field such as Zurich tram or NSB Norway. But as much as we believe in specialization, we also believe that a wide spectrum of disciplines and expertise enriches everything we do. That’s why we create digital and physical products for an international client base from a wide range of industries instead of specializing in only one field.

First and foremost, design must find the best answer to satisfy these needs in order to convince customers that trains are among the best and most convenient ways to travel. Customer satisfaction is key.
