Hello!! We are a Bangkok-based graphic design studio that specialises in translating information into communication strategy through typographic approach for wide range of works from corporate identity, print media, environmental graphic, website to exhibition for many private companies and public institutions.

With an interest on uncovering information, our work has extended to conducting commissioned design research and initiating our own projects for example “Whether It Is Art or Not”, a visualised catalogue that tells the story of Chavalit Soemprungsuk. Furthermore, we also run a graphic design educational platform “The Rambutan” and co-founded “Bangkok Art Book Fair” with Bangkok CityCity Gallery.

EMOJI T—SHIRT
GRAPHIC DESIGN
2019
The design for A Design Film Festival 2019 on the topic of Emoji. We believe the emoji carry emotions. We often use emoji like smiley faces or heart symbols, to make our words feel gentler. This t-shirt design follows the same concept and features a set of 13 emoji – each depicting dictators from history to present day (including “one from our country” according to the designers 😉) set within a dictionary definition of dictatorship
