Studio Bramesfeld

Studio Bramesfeld is the design practice by the independent German graphic designer Wibke Bramesfeld (she/her), based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The studio focuses mainly on book design, but also intertwined with visual communication and graphic identity work across the cultural field. The approach of Studio Bramesfeld’s work is not only to create visually stimulating designs, but to also build conceptually strong foundations, by taking elements such as graphic design, typography, colour, and materials into consideration for each individual project.

The studio has worked in collaboration with many cultural organisations and art publishers, including Valiz, Het Nieuwe Instituut, nai010, Archiprix, Design Academy Eindhoven, Onomatopee Projects, and PrintRoom.

Besides that Wibke is the Co-Founder of the Rotterdam-based experimental imprint and expanded publishing practice HumDrum Press, together with Amy Gowen.
