We’re a studio working in the fields of Design and Communication, and at the intersections created by them. We’re committed to meaningful ideas and an ambition to put people first: whether they’re an audience, a reader or the consumer. We work across a range of media, both on digital and physical platforms, on a process lead by an exploratory-immersive approach with innovative design methodologies. Our plan is to make a difference.

Programs

  for Startups
We occasionally provide design services to Startups in order to help them establish their brand, positioning, communications or user experiences, in exchange for aggressively reduced rates or equity stake. We welcome applicants to submit their proposal to this program by email.

 

   for NGO
We welcome not-for-profit organizations to apply to this year long program where we provide design services on a pro bono basis. We tend to work — not only but mostly — with human rights, animal welfare, ecology and culture related instituions. Please contact us by email ahead of time with your institution problem.

 

   for Students
We grew on the spirit of the european study/work abroad programs. Therefore we established a connection to this mentoring practice by occasionally offering an internship programme, usually twice a year (February/July & September/February). If you are interested in joining our program, please send us your portfolio by email.
