Our design work is firmly grounded in an understanding of how traditional tools, materials, techniques and letterforms can be interpreted in a contemporary context. Exposure to modern materials are an exciting part of the design process. We generally start with an historical structure and work through the tools and movements to design something modern. We see this as an interactive process with the client. Our extensive knowledge of writing and the decorative arts, the world over, gives us technical information on something we all think is commonplace. Our understanding of the above mentioned fields is supported by the studio’s extensive library of reference materials.
