Strange Attractors (design is environment)



Based in The Hague, the Netherlands, the international design firm Strange Attractors was founded five years ago by Ryan Pescatore Frisk and Catelijne van Middelkoop. Their work reflects a keen interest in the intertwining of culture, media, context, experience and history. While they take a highly experimental approach to each of their wide-ranging design projects, their custom designed type and typography are hallmarks of their work. Through lectures and workshops they encourage designers and design students to see, value, and reinvent the vernacular around them—rather than capitulating to a generic globalist design approach.

Winners of numerous awards, Ryan Pescatore Frisk's and Catelijne van Middelkoop's work was recognized by I.D. Magazine's ID Forty 2006. Their clients have included FSI Fontshop International, Wieden+Kennedy Tokyo Lab, Studio Dumbar, and Museum Boijmans.
