We are a small Warsaw-based graphic design studio specializing in visual identity creation, branding, editorial and web design. We are interested in all aspects of the design process. In a time of rampant sensory overload we embrace simplicity and a commitment to visual clarity. At the same time, we enjoy remixing meanings and means of expression. We are familiar with the latest trends but seek to provide long-lasting and timeless answers for our clients. We believe in conscious design and avoid work on single-use objects and carefully choose the materials used in our designs.
We listen carefully and work closely with our clients which include companies, cultural institutions, foundations and NGOs.
