ABOUT THE BOOK
In the world of design, two heads are not necessarily better than one. As often as not, small studios create high quality solutions that demonstrate strong concepts, firm commitment and distinctive personal beliefs. These merits have drawn commissions from music festivals, cultural institutes and fashion brands, the like of which aim at groups who are attentive to content and visual details.
Featuring household names like Leslie David (FR), Le Creative Sweatshop (FR) and Craig & Karl (US+UK), and prolific talents Greece Is For Lovers (GR), Designbolaget (DK) and Raw Color (NL), So1o 2uo 3rio gathers the thoughts and works of 30 award-winning design units from 18 cities from across the world. From their inception to their recent encounters, these champions of creative play speak about why they are proud to stay small and how they intently forge artistic excellence across the fields of graphic, fashion and product design.
“So1o 2uo 3rio takes a good look at small-scale design units creating big-scale stuff. The book argues for the power of commitment that comes from small outfits.”
