THE WAY WE WORK

When starting a project we dive deep into your company.
During round the table brainstorm sessions with you and your key team
members we zoom in on topics that are relevant to you.

During our research, we are focused on the input that will strengthen your brand.
We think about sustainability at all steps of the design process and strive to maintain our
and your CO2 footprint as low as possible.

We believe in strong visual communication as a starting point for all design trajects.
Our concepts are based on thoroughly trend and market research.

DESIGN

When designing collection styles and artworks we keep your signature and identity in mind.
We focus on long-term design with cohesion in shape, color and language.

ARTWORK

Custom made seasonal artworks, graphics and (seamless) allover dessins,
designed for you to be outstanding, commercial and attractive.

ART DIRECTION

By directing your story and striking the right chord for your collection or brand concept,
that's what art direction is for. 

The Trend-Sessions

Directional & inspirational, our seminars curate an insightful forecast of the upcoming trends.
We focus on consumer behaviour, innovation, fashion, sustainability, design, fabric, interior, lifestyle and color.
With strong visuals and macro economic content we provide a directional inside on the  upcoming season,
