WORK

ABOUT

Summer Studio is an agency for graphic design and typography, based in Stockholm. Our work includes identities, exhibitions, art direction, books, magazines, signage, packaging and digital. We also design custom fonts in our independent type foundry Queer Type. Each project is approached with artistic analysis and direction towards the cutting edge of visual communication today. We want our clients to stand out, visual language to evolve and our selves to grow as artists – three intentions that take us in one and the same direction. We occasionally teach what we’ve learned, in the form of seminars, workshops or lectures at art- and design institutions around the country.

We are a part of the My Little Jobby collective, working together on a daily basis from our joint office in Södermalm, Stockholm.
