Designers and companies using design services alike face the problem to find each other when they need to find a project partner. Ever so often the decision for a designer is driven rather by personal connections or the publicity rate of an agency, not so much by the question if the designer fits to the given task and has enough experience in the field of work. Here the book “Designer Profile” by swiss publisher “Birkäuser” (the same people that publish form magazine) comes to aid, presenting designers from all kinds of fields in an attractive way.
The website Designer Profile online supplements the book with a searchable database of all agencies and studios contained therein.
The design of the website resembles the topic “design”, but at the same time must give the individual (and often colorful) design works shown there enough room and visual autonomy. So the framework is designed in poster style that shows actuality by itself, while the entries on the white background have a space of their own to develop visually. The modular design concept also enables us to create a new framework matching the current book design while keeping the inner part for the studios intact.
