graphic design & visual interventions

about the studio

Located in Stockholm with an international outreach, Studio Benedetta Crippa is a graphic design practice devoted to the development and research of progressive aesthetics and methodologies. 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 research. 

Our work spans across scale and scope, thanks to frameworks that are both scalable and context-specific. We are committed to a sustainable graphic design field and run transparent practices based on integrity and working conditions of fairness. The Studio engages in an international network of practitioners committed to cross-cultural dialogue, and invests an important amount of time into open-ended research and development. 

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, taking commissions from visual identities, to strategic consultancy and fine ornamental work.

Benedetta’s background and visual research in Italy, Nepal and Central Asia have shaped her distinctive visual language, where she combines ornamentation and experimental investigations to revisit ideas around beauty 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. In 2019–2021 she is the initiator of the first course of its kind on visual sustainability at Konstfack University. Benedetta is also engaged as researcher and educator at university level and is regular visiting teacher at Konstfack and Beckmans College of Design.

Benedetta is a nominee of Design S 2020 and winner of Ung Svensk Form 2018.
