Graphic design studio was established by Yurko Gutsulyak in 2005. The main activity of the studio is visual communications.

“We are doing everything in a different way and every time in a different manner, but in any case, at least in a good way. We love what we do and believe that any work could be interesting as a result only provided that it is interesting as a process. With each new project, we challenge ourselves and define new high standards of quality. And it is not only the quality of performance, but also the quality of established ideas”.

For such a short period of existence the studio won such awards, like Epica Awards, Golden Drum, Communication Arts, European Design Awards, LogoLounge, Wolda, Golden Hammer, MIAF, KIAF, Idea, Kakadu, etc.

The Studio is the first Ukrainian gold winner of one of the most prestigious advertising festival Epica Awards (France), as well as one of the top three creative leaders of advertising market of Ukraine, according to the rating of Ukrainian Advertising Coalition.

The Studio’s works are published in top magazines in advertising and graphic design throughout the world, as well as exhibited in the museums of France, Poland, Mexico and China.

Running in the morning through the city (down what the germans call a fussgangerzone) and being amazed by all the grand empty old buildings that reminded me of my Berlin beginnings. Grafitti on buildings. Lovely broken walls with acne'd facades from decades of reverse engineering. Discovering that all the ships on the river were party boats and open till the morning. Sweating so much in one of the clubs, my phone got messed up. Losing phone in said club. Visiting belgrade police station to report a then stolen phone to a twenty-something cop with a doctor's lab coat, listening to Rammstein (loudly) while hacking out my report on a pre-electric typewriter that looked (and sounded) as if it was from some era before typewriters were invented.   Thinking of Naked Lunch. Thinking of Die-Hard. Listening to architects talk about porous facades. Thinking of old smart bombs. Imagining the flash and crunch of several floors of reinforced concrete collapsing in on themselves. Wondering why I'm the only interactive guy here. Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade? Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade?!
