We always try to bare essentials.
In our work we look for simple, effective ways to communicate. Our starting point is usually a modest idea. We try to embrace that idea as much as possible, and then visualize it in the most convincing way. We do not want to put ourself too much in between the client and the message.

We try to be brains instead of a sauce that can be thrown over every assignment. (Helveticasauce, Two tone silkscreensauce, Neoncoloursauce, Cyansauce etc.). Like everyone else we try to be original, and sometimes we even succeed.
We are inspired by many things,
for instance the street.
But most of the time we are not even that inspired by default. Assignments give the energy really. We can answer, adapt, (dis)agree and start working.
If you want ,

Nikki and Johannes
