graphic design & visual interventions

about the studio

Located in Stockholm with an international outreach, the studio is run by Benedetta Crippa, graphic designer and advisor originally from Italy. Benedetta designs both as creative director and hands-on visual artisan, taking commissions from strategic consultancy, to design and all kinds of expansive visual interventions. Benedetta is also engaged as researcher and educator at university level and is regular visiting teacher at Konstfack University.

Benedetta’s practice is a focused investigation on how graphic design can expand beyond current boundaries of methodology and aesthetics. Her 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, form and power.

Former graphic design Lead at the Stockholm Environment Institute, one of the most respected research institutes on sustainability globally, Benedetta is committed to a sustainable design field. 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 a nominee of Design S 2020 and winner of Ung Svensk Form 2018.
