"HANDS is a new animation studio, where the manual part (as you can guess), proximity aspect and the willingness to served in the fairest way client’s need are really essential. So we made a logo with each letter embody a figure with her own mood. Then we decided to use colorful papers to bring forward nice & human aspect of the studio and artisanal silkscreen printing support further the project."

ACME is a graphic design studio based in Paris created by Elodie Mandray and Caroline Aufort. Sharing similar views on their job, they decided to team up, sharing their complimentary expertise in art direction, print, visual identity and typography. The studio’s objective is to reach out to the ACME.

Tsto  |   http://tsto.org

"With Vuoden Huiput we wanted to experiment with the in many ways unpredictable nature of crowdsourcing and automated workflow. Together with a programmer Juhani Pelli we created an application that transformed any written word or sentence into a rebus, an allusional device that uses pictures to represent words or parts of words. Homonyms are rare in Finnish language, therefore the rebus is constructed from a list of some 5000 words with the most used syllables and matched with an image search result from Google."

Tsto is a graphic design agency focusing on visual concepts and art direction. Our approach is thorough and hands-on. We tackle an assignment by first taking it apart to its bare essentials, and then building it in a new way that best serves the purpose. This philosophy lets us go deeper than the surface, to the hidden core of each case. Tsto was founded by Johannes Ekholm, Jonatan Eriksson, Inka Järvinen, Matti Kunttu, Jaakko Pietiläinen and Antti Uotila.

"Event planner Lisa Vorce wanted a custom invitation that would create conversation and excitement about her clients’ upcoming Native American-inspired wedding in the desert of Arizona. Drawing from those influences, we designed the form and function of a small teepee, complete with skewers as support beams."

Device is a design studio based in Winston-Salem, NC, honoring the craft and getting our hands dirty as often as possible.
