Graphic Design: Phenomenally slick design from Amsterdam's Main Studio

Posted by James Cartwright,

We’ve spoken about this before – in fact we sometimes think we go on about it too much – but the documentation of graphic design is often as important as the design itself when trying to communicate your practice through digital media. Witness the phenomenally documented portfolio of Amsterdam’s Main Studio. These guys not only produce some of the finest work going across print, digital and branding, for art, architecture and fashion clients, but their website is an exercise in polish and restraint. They never give you too much visual information, but what they do looks incredible and presents them as one of the foremost practitioners of their craft. Doubtless they’ve employed a terrific photographer to capture the images for them, but if you’re one of the best design studios around why not splash out on someone who’s equally good with their lens? Seems sensible to us…
