Mainstudio is a design practise base in Amsterdam. Within a strong dialogue with the commissioner the studio creates projects deriving from the intersection of art and architecture – including visual identities, publications and digital media. Each project is characterized by a content driven editorial approach, led by typography, creating a synthesis of form and content. The studio embeds inventive printing techniques within traditional media, and explores innovative interaction design within its digital media output.

The work has been featured in numerous exhibitions, publications and has been won numerous awards including: Best Dutch Book Design of 2019, AIGA 50 Books | 50 Covers, BRNO Biennial 2018, Best Dutch Book Design of 2018, It’s Nice That, Best Dutch Book Design of 2017, Best Dutch Book Design of 2016, Tokyo TDC Annual Awards 2014, Best Book Design from all over the World 2013, Best Dutch Book Design of 2012, I.D.
