After four years at prestigious Dutch agency Studio Dumbar, Vincent Vrints decided to branch out, pair up with Naomi Kolsteren and form identity, photography and art direction studio Vrints-Kolsteren. Already the pair has racked up some superb projects, creating a portfolio united by bold use of typography and a minimal aesthetic that makes for impactful pieces for a range of clients.
In an identity for Antwerp-based multidisciplinary festival Over Tijd, a colour palette of brooding grey tones and black work with a range of abstract shapes and capped up type to give a feeling of hypercool academia. Using a similarly minimal approach, the pair has also created the identity for Sint Lucas Antwerp’s Graduation Show, which uses imagery of the nuts and bolts that make up hanging a show in flashes of colour to add visual flourishes.
