Het Entrepot is an open house and creative workspace for young talent. Studio Studio was asked in a pitch to make the new visual identity. We designed a dynamic visual identity based on the meaning of the term ‘entrepot’ (= warehouse). Our design concept, rooted in the essence of ‘entrepot’ as a warehouse of possibilities, envisioned a dynamic letter ‘E’ serving as a versatile canvas for diverse content. Each content must be placed inside the letters E. The letter is the binding item and can be used in a variety of forms and lines.

Ciao Ciao Studio organised a typography exhibition, calling international designers to join a month-long pop-up event during the festival of Palermo Italian Capital of Culture 2018.

Studio Studio was asked to design a single letter of the alphabet based on our own vision of the city of Palermo. The letter H is carefully constructed to reflect the sophistication of Palermo’s architecture and impression. To emphasize this historical context, the proportions of established, familiar fonts were retained in the design of the letter. A striking feature of the letter is the arch used as a crossbar. This element was taken directly from the (pointed) arch forms found in various historically important buildings. The serifs are unusually built up, although they provide a balanced typeface; they unobtrusively represent Palermo’s own eclecticism.

The sum of all the letters designed by the designers creates a dissonant alphabet, showed at the exhibition.

Studio Studio was invited to pay homage to Biennale Interieur, granting access to the extensive archive of printed materials. While exploring the archive, the attention was captivated by the posters and catalogues designed by Boudewijn Delaere for the Biennale. His identity, evolving with contemporary design, resonated strongly with Studio Studio’s vision as a graphic design bureau—bold colors, applied shapes, minimalistic approach, integrated logo, and prominent typography.

Inspired by this identity, Studio Studio embarked on a thorough investigation, discovering that other leading graphic designers had also experimented with Boudewijn Delaere’s work. Following a similar logic, Studio Studio distilled simple forms and colors from the overall graphic identity.

Simultaneously, a clear trend emerged from the recent catalogs: the vast possibilities for personalization and the creation of individual interiors. This insight, combined with the distilled graphic elements, culminated in the creation of the playful graphic game ‘Remember Biennale Interieur.’ A nod to the numerous flags used in the announcement of the Biennale, the game’s cards reflect the symbiosis of forms and colors. The game first invites players to explore and recognize the evolution of Biennale Interieur’s graphic identity through a memory game. Subsequently, players are challenged to design their unique Biennale poster using their matched pairs.

Another Graphic is a digital archive focusing on typographic treatment within graphic design practices. We have been curating this archive for about 10 years, allowing us to share our interest in typography but also continue to look for exciting development in the field and get curious about other designers works.

 

Over the years we noticed a growing interest for this digital archive and consequently we decided to take a step further and create a specific identity for it. Alongside, we also developped an online platform working as a tool to research, classify and find data within the archive.

 

Our visual aesthetic draws inspiration from the concept of a classified archive: a set of classified documents kept for consultation. Every design element is thoughtfully considered, enhancing the user experience and inviting seamless engagement with the content.

 

The Monotesk font used in the identity is a typeface we designed in collaboration with Emma Marichal exclusively for this platform and new identity. It is a typeface at the interesction of a grotesk and a monospaced, an hybrid version of a typewriter font.

 

From its humble origins as a digital repository, Another Graphic has blossomed into a vibrant community hub, accessible through the website, anothergraphic.org, and the social media platforms @anothergraphicdotorg (Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook). Our mission remains unwavering: to cultivate a global network of creatives united by a shared passion for graphic design, with a particular focus on pushing the boundaries of typographic innovation.

FIG is an annual festival which host multiple events on contemporary graphic design practices. For the 2020 edition, Studio Studio has been invited to design a postage stamp.

 

This tiny piece of paper was created in the United Kingdom as a way to regulate the transport of letters in the XIX century. Sold at the symbolic price of 1 penny, postal stamps were printed using the intaglio method. This particular printing process resulted in very high precision prints making them difficult to copy or reproduce.

 

As a tribute to the 1 penny stamp we worked around a special arrangement of lines referring to the pattern obtained with intaglio prints. These lines enable the writing of a secret message in transparency: 1UNIT.

It is the only fair in Belgium that offers to combine the two practices and mingle them into a single event.

 

In 2019, we designed a new visual identity for the fair. It started with an elementary concept following the idea of the exhibition: nothing is the same, everything is different. While a wide range of styles, disciplines and processes are displayed, the identity centres around the notion of eclecticism, closely resonating with the scenography designed by Doorzon interior architects and Theo De Meyer.

With the intention to be used and adapted for further events during upcoming years, the identity of The Belgian Art & Design Fair works as a system. Each visual is a playground that constantly uses different elements; a system that challenges itself into inventing new solutions for various events, visuals, single creators as well as for collective exhibitions.

Colors can be adapted, placement, fonts, shapes, to create continuous possibilities. It was created as a lasting and identifiable part of the Belgian art and design community, including the red, yellow and black colors of the Belgian flag.

Phono, a listening bar in Ghent, immerses patrons in a unique blend of sound, food, and drinks. During the Gentse Feesten 2022, Phono made its debut in a pop-up location in the city center of Ghent, featuring live DJ performances, food and special cocktails. To mark this event, we introduced Phono’s identity for the first time. This encompassed interior interventions, including the bar and door, alongside the creation of a website, business cards, and a lightbox.

 

The identity is inspired by graphic representation of sounds and phonemes. We created a grid as a starting point that stretches and adjusts to the dimensions of the communicating medium, playing with circles and dots. Each circle represents one of the highlight of the bar: music, food and beverages.

Arsenaal is a former train repair centre built in the late nineteen century by the national railway company. This is a large complex of industrial buildings in Ghent that were left by the railway company in 2019. It has since become a place illegally used by street artists, making it a popular and underground destination.

In 2022, it was acted: parts of the site could be used as a new cultural venue for the city. In September 2022, a first month of festivities was taking place for which we created an identity.

 

The identity is a tribute to the industrial metallic rooftop structures of the Arsenaal site. Playing with only a few parameters we created a cheerful and rhythmic aesthetic. The background lines together with the typography (Haüser) recall the systematic architectural motifs highlighting their specificities. The text, over and above the background lines creates sequences of patterns emphasized by its own justification to the margins.

Year2022

Ponton magazine strives to create a connection between designers and people. The first issue centers around five young and emerging designers, sharing some of their stories. Additionally, Ponton features interviews with other designers. The magazine’s primary goal is to inspire readers and focus on the creative journey of designers rather than just their final products. Through this approach, Ponton sheds light on the various challenges designers face in today’s creative process, particularly young and recently graduated ones. It aims to foster dialogue, encourage reflection and promote knowledge sharing through diverse presentation and working methods.

Ponton serves as both a carrier of content and a showcase for talents. It offers designers a platform to discuss and share their ambitions, doubts, successes, and failures. To convey the essence of the creative process, which is often a blurry and evolving journey, we employed a pixellated typeface. This typeface not only introduces varying degrees of blur and pixelation but also embodies the gradual clarity that emerges from the mist of creation. A sans-serif typeface is used alongside giving a sense of clarity throught the process.

Furthermore, to maintain a clear overview of the magazine while breaking away from linearity, we developed a system of keywords and labels that extend throughout every article. These labels can be found at the beginning of the magazine, inviting each reader to interpret and comprehend the content in their own way. This design choice aims to create an engaging reading experience, departing from the conventional structure.

Additionally, the magazine places special emphasis on the center of its editorial object: the spine. The layout and structural choices are a tangible representation of how Ponton literally bridges the gap, symbolizing its core mission.

The “buitenshuis” project unfolded over two years, emerging organically from local cultural project with a shared desire to get to know each other better. Delving into both philosophical and practical themes, the project explored the realization of everyone’s cultural rights and a collaborative exchange of experiences. Through the creation of zines, each centered around the fundamental question of democratizing cultural access, nineteen authors expressed their responses in diverse forms such as poetry, metaphor, opinion pieces, laments, or footnotes. The design was thoughtfully taken care of by us.

Taste Korea, or ‘Proef Koera’ in Dutch, is a cookbook curated by the chef Ae Jin. This cookbook showcases a collection of Korean recipes, emphasizing accessibility by featuring locally available ingredients. Each ingredient is presented with its own image, illustrating that the rich food culture of Korea can be authentically reproduced using accessible and local components.

To further enhance accessibility, the recipes in Taste Korea are organized by color of the main ingredient rather than alphabetically. This intentional arrangement is used to break language barriers and rather focus on the recipes on a visual level rather than textual. The color-coded system serves as a visual guide on the index of the book

In a fusion of typographic styles, the book integrates elements from the Korean alphabet and language with Latin scripts, by the use of vertical alignment of texts and Korean-inspired emoticons.

 

The book is published by Lannoo and available in three languages (English, Dutch and German).

The genesis of Graphic Graphic was sparked by a shared sentiment among Belgian graphic designers: a desire to dissolve the veil of unfamiliarity that shrouds our practices, discipline and more generally our body of work. We questioned whether we, as graphic designers, could collectively define what makes Belgian graphic design particular. In response to this challenge, Graphic Graphic was founded with the intention of making the Belgian graphic design scene more accessible, comprehensible and appreciated.

 

Graphic Graphic is a platform that was founded by Studio Studio during the spring 2023. The first event was entitled Fast Life and was focusing on posters. This exhibition was held during the Belgian Art & Design Fair 2023 at Arsenaal Gentbrugge.

The core concept of the book revolves around empowering readers to navigate the landscape of specialty coffee.

 

Each section of the book is equipped with tags. A short description of the tags can be found in an index at the beginning of the book. These tags serve a dual purpose—they provide a sneak peek into the upcoming chapter’s content and function as a navigational tool. This allows readers to engage with the content in a non-linear manner, treating the book more as a practical tool rather than a linear narrative.

Proposed concept for Exhale, a community centered on Techno Music established by Amelie Lens.

The concept of the identity relies on the utilization of a raster tool to generate typographical patterns that dialogue and overlap with a second, more readable typeface. The effects applied to the text draw inspiration from the concepts of breathing, mist, and smoke, commonly associated with techno events.

Additionally, the rasterizing effect holds potential for dynamic animation, particularly suited for live events or video promotions.
