Located in Stockholm with an international outreach, we are a graphic design practice devoted to the development and research of progressive aesthetics and methodologies, taking commissions from visual identities, to strategic consultancy and fine ornamental work.
Our work expands ideas around beauty, the politics of form, and emotion. We do this through graphic design and visual interventions that embed critical thought holistically, as well as education and design-led research, using frameworks that are both scalable and context-specific.
The Studio is run by Benedetta Crippa, graphic design director and communication advisor originally from Italy. With extensive experience of design processes, Benedetta works both as creative director and hands-on artisan.
Strong of a distinctive visual language and grounded methodology, in her work aesthetics emerge as a tangible contribution to transformation toward social equity. She also works as educator and advisor focusing on the intersections of visuality and power.
Former graphic design Lead at the Stockholm Environment Institute, one of the most respected research institutes on sustainability globally, her practice-based research on visual sustainability is being recognised as expanding the discourse on sustainable practice for the field of graphic design.
Benedetta is engaged with design pedagogy as tutor at several design institutions and as regular guest teacher at Konstfack University and Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm. An engaging speaker, she regularly lectures on visual sustainability and power-critical design practice, from design companies to the international stage.
Benedetta is a nominee of Design S 2020 and winner of Ung Svensk Form 2018.
