We prefer loose heterogeneous networks over rigid monolithic structures. We believe in organizations as organisms: for each project our network clusters into effective units to serve your specific needs. Therefore we entertain close business relationships to highly skilled and highly experienced type designers in numerous geographies who consult us on non-Latin type design such as Arabic, Cyrillic, Chinese, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Thai and more.
We wouldn’t be viable without the inspiration, motivation and commission by certain individuals and organizations. We kindly would like to thank Alexandra Schwarzwald, Sherpa Design, Erik Spiekermann, P98a, DE.Design, Florida Brand Design, Helder, Benny Schaupp, Open Studio Stockholm, Marta Herford, Mangold Branding, Fontef, and Hannes von Döhren.
