We are BANK™, an international design agency based in the heart of Berlin. Since 2004 we plan, develop, and realise a wide range of design projects for cultural, institutional, and commercial clients. We create projects and carry them out from beginning to end. We create design concepts and visual identities, from logos to typographies, publications to websites, flyers to campaigns.
Moreover, we give design workshops in China, Germany, France and Sweden, and tutor at academies in Germany and France. Teaching exposes us to new perspectives, questions our own opinions, and sharpens our own views. Our multifaceted nature and interest in exploring different fields leads us to initiate our own projects in music, art and publishing. Examples include ‘The Art of Conversation’, a cultural exchange and exhibition in collaboration with Inventory Studio from London; 1/2 (un demi), cofounded by Laure Boer, an association of female designers that publishes an art magazine twice a year; and the monthly event, ‘Good and Plenty’, that we organised with our friends from blotto for a period of two years.
BANK™ is part of a larger network, inviting professionals from a variety of different fields to join our team on relevant projects. We are housed in a beautiful glass studio in the Aufbau Haus/Planet Modulor in Berlin Kreuzberg; a vivid environment that is peaceful and relaxed, yet full of energy. Our office is an open house, and our clients, students, and friends swing by all day long. Please feel free to do so!
