Deutsch

Studio Mut ist ein Graphic Design und Corporate Design Studio in Bozen, Südtirol. Wir gestalten Corporate Designs, Magazine, Bücher und Websites für Kunden aus Kunst, Kultur und Wirtschaft. Unsere Projekte lösen Probleme, im besten Fall mit reduzierter aber schlagkräftiger Ästhetik. Man sagt, unsere Arbeiten seien spielerisch – und gleichzeitig ernsthaft. Dieses ungewöhnliche Gleichgewicht versuchen wir zu halten.
