Scrolling through what feels like an endless array of projects, it’s difficult to believe that Ines Cox only founded her studio last year. Since parting ways with former partner Lauren Grusenmeyer, co-founder of five-year endeavour Cox & Grusenmeyer, Ines has branched out on her own to establish an eponymous practice based in Antwerp. While she still includes much of her old work with Lauren in her portfolio, her new work demonstrates an exciting and playful approach to typography and innovative poster design.

See the poster series De Nieuwe Oogst for one example; the posters place segments from various different images side by side in a layout which resembles a computer desktop to create a decidedly modern and intriguing digital aesthetic. It’s just one of a host of projects, including book and exhibition design, brand identities and installations, and coupled with the fact that Ines recently started to teach typography – at the Royal Academy of Antwerp no less – we get the impression she’s one to keep our eye on.
