Profil společnosti

Studio Najbrt is a leading Czech graphic design studio. It was founded in 1994 creating identities, publications, posters, books, exhibitions or websites and apps for domestic as well as international clients. The studio’s longtime collaborations with the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, the photographer Josef Koudelka, the Ambiente group, the City of Prague and many others established its bold and playful approach, decorating its imaginary mantelpiece with awards and features in publications from all over the world. “When I think about Studio Najbrt, the first idea that comes to my mind is fun,” wrote the design critic Rick Poynor in 2007 and to this day no one objected.
