Graphic Design: Dutch duo Studio Laucke Siebein, masters of modern design

Posted by Liv Siddall,

People go on about “flourishes” but it’s not until you’ve seen stars applied in between lines of perfectly chosen typography that you really understand what it means, but these guys have go them coming out of their ears. Few graphic design portfolios have given me as much palpable joy as this one from Studio Laucke Siebein. As well as designing frieze d/e, Dirk and Johanna have made charming posters, identities, books and small publications for the likes of Kunsthal Rotterdam and the Groninger museum. I wonder why museums keep on coming to them to design the identities for their shows? Ah yes, it’s because everything these two lay their hands on becomes fun, accessible and desirable.
