With clients the likes of Supreme NY, Internazionale Milano, The Design Museum and Balenciaga, their work not only responds to, but has ultimately played a part in forming, our contemporary cultural experiences. Straying away from preconceived notions of what should be done, Bureau Borsche instead carve out new approaches for designing for art and culture.
Founded in 2007 by Mirko Borsche, the studio’s work spans seemingly unrelated worlds, bridging and navigating unexpected, disconnected aesthetics and industries, from fashion brands, to orchestras and football clubs. Grounded in editorial design, their work navigates design and art direction from a distinct, specific and purposeful perspective that places communication and clarity at its core, no matter the output.
From a conceptual level Bureau Borsche’s work is second-to-none, and this adept proficiency extends fully into their visual outputs, which are genuinely beautiful in their consideration and form. Whether in the confidence, elegance and material choices of their editorial design for Numeró Berlin or the luxurious, aspirational and fashion-led art direction of their visual identity for Venezia FC, the work pulls you in and asks you to continue looking.
From the cultural to the commercial, from campaigns to visual identities and branding, and from new technologies to traditional methods, Bureau Borsche’s practice, rooted firmly in its editorial approach, is truly and effortlessly prolific.
