about us

Bend is a hyperactive, Athens-based studio with a soft spot for the design & production of excellent printed & digital matter. We address contemporary topics through a synthesis of graphic design, illustration, digital media, photography, music & art.

Since 2005, we have mainly worked with cultural entities, while pursuing close collaborations with individuals, initiatives, companies, institutes & organizations that share a common vision for high-end visual & graphic communication.

 

We provide solutions and services that communicate through rational, functional & content-driven design. As a team, we believe in collective creativity over personal taste, egos & trends. We value the uniqueness of our clients and affiliates and we firmly believe that transformative work that shapes contemporary culture can only come from mutual respect.

 

The studio is currently made up of:

Giorgos Axiotis, Viktor Gogas, Odysseas Tsolkas (Creative & Art Directors)
Thanos Papadopoulos (Project & Operations Manager)
Markos Zouridakis (Senior Designer)
Helena Koursou (Junior Designer)
