Editorial and graphic design with a strong conceptual and typographical bias.
Our designs set out from the assignment’s individual characteristics. Each new project poses a new question that demands a novel answer. Our approach is critical and exploratory, which leads to distinctive results that are highly diverse. No single design is the same.

An unusual concept to frame extraordinary work *
Corporate website of Studio Piet Paris. The design splits the browser window in two to give space for a horizontal scroll, at the left hand site, presenting all images of the work. While simultaneously at the right hand site, text accompanies the imagery and lead you further through the navigation of the website.Besides a selection of illustrations, the website presents the studio's other activities, namely product design and consultancy work.
Arnhem Mode Biennale and it's dotted type The make up of the type being separate dots, the typography lent itself for multiple purposes. Laser techniques were used on the stationary creating the effect of transparency and tangibility. Likewise, the title of the exhibition was made up of individual round, white stickers on a dark outside wall and the exhibition texts were created by black pins in white polystyrene foam blocks.The invitations for the opening of the Biennale, also designed by Coppens & Alberts, were printed on ribbon.
