Michel de Boer presented Studio Dumbar’s work at Belgrade Design Week 2014. Studio Dumbar is one of the most award-winning design agencies.

Studio Dumbar is an international agency with a Dutch heritage. It creates brands that are seen and appreciated. They stand out in the cluttered market-landscape. This started in 1977, when Gert Dumbar founded the studio in The Hague.

Studio Dumbar creates meaningful brands. From strategy to reality. It has an innate drive to make outstanding work. Pure. Simple. Powerful.

Studio creates benchmarks for a diversity of clients: business, government, culture or non-profit; btb and btc.

Design is at the heart of what studio does. Studio’s work can be described as ‘visual branding, online branding’, meaning it creates every visible expression of a brand or organization — offline and online. This involves expertise in strategy, communication, branding and process-management.

Studio Dumbar attracts talented individuals from around the world. Over the years, this has lead to an endless run of remarkable personalities and projects. Studio’s portfolio is equally diverse, encompassing work for a variety of clients both large and small – from business and government to cultural and non-profit.

Studio Dumbar works in an online context. It is part of Dept, an international digital network that brings together the best agencies in creativity, technology and data.


Bags of energy, overwhelming hospitality, an inspiring mix of people, a refreshing lack of pretence – and of course lots of meat. Belgrade feels like a city where anything can happen, and Jovan and the BDW team have put it right on the creative map.
