Te studio

Studio—Rubic was founded in January 2011 by Ann Griffin and Nicolas Jeanmairet.

Our studio focuses on editorial design (books and magazines) and printed matter (brochures, programs, posters, cards and logotypes), but also conceives complete corporate identities, signposting systems and websites.

Our clients include both cultural institutions and large and small businesses. Our approach is highly personalised; we adapt ourselves to each client’s needs from a project’s conception to it’s final result. To better respond to the different needs we work with a team of professionals (photographers, web developpers,…)

We work with clients in French, English, Italian, German and Swiss-German.
