THE STUDIO

Avant les Vacances is a design studio for visual and interactive affairs. Rooted in concepts and designs for printed matter, the studio’s focus has subsequently expanded into the digital sphere. We believe that good digital designs come from a deep understanding of the content and the technical structure. Therefore we engage at the intersection of these three fields. This helps us developing user centered concepts with a thriving & intuitive visual language based on latest technology. Our services focus on visual identities, publications and digital products for clients from the fields of arts & design, culture and education.
