Brussels-based studio Bureau Grusenmeyer has a wonderfully diverse and accomplished portfolio of graphic design work, with highlights including work for electronic musician Actress and a rather saucy publication for underwear brand la fille d’o. For the former, the studio worked around a portrait of the artist shot by Tim Onderbeke. Lauren Grusenmeyer says: “We decided to keep the design very simple and rough, referencing 90s hip hop designs in contrast with cut up typography.”
A decidedly more raunchy piece of work, the book for a fille d’o follows the studio’s identity creation for the brand, and was designed for its 10th birthday. Lauren worked with Ines Cox on the publication, which draws together archive material, editorial shoots and behind-the-scenes images from the brand’s history. “True to la fille d’O’s DIY spirit we set out to make an analogue version of their archive.,” says Bureau Grusenmeyer. “Using print-outs of the archival material, compositions were made in plastic folders which allowed us to quite literally edit the book ‘hands-on’ in an unconstrained way. Afterwards, these plastic folders were photographed and became the pages of the book. The accompanying texts – divided in nine chapters – were set with indents, spaces and repetitions, highlighting the meaning between the words.”
