Graphic Design: Studio Spass take over the streets of Rotterdam for arts festival identity

I’m not sure anyone had heard of Rotterdam before the 1996 Beautiful South song of the same name, but either way its creative scene is ensuring that there’s far more to the city than a catchy melody and some largely nonsensical lyrics. One of the studios whose work has caught our eye in the past is Studio Spass, comprised of Jaron Korvinus and Daan Mens, and they followed up their impressive identity for the De Wereld van Witte de With art festival (which we featured last year) with an even more ambitious project this time around.

Because the most recent festival was themed round the idea of the street, Studio Spass created a series of sculptures carrying quotations from curator Lukas Feireiss. Thought-provoking, funny and sometimes confrontational, the sculptures ensured the people of Rotterdam came face-to-face with some of the complex ideas surrounding public spaces and social interaction.

They’ve also just updated their site with some cool posters designed to encapsulate the spirit of Berlin. Excellent stuff.
