Syfon Studio was founded by Urszula Janowska and Filip Tofil. We have met in Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw where we both earned our Master of Arts degree in Poster Design class headed by Prof. Mieczysław Wasilewski. We also had an exchange to École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD) in Paris. In our projects we like to mix traditional techniques with contemporary approach to graphic design.
Philosophy on Work
We deal in visual interaction. Many years of experience and solid research allow us to create cutting edge graphic concepts for companies and institutions. We thrive on challenging projects that require an unconventional, creative approach. While working on a new project, we aim to make our clients a part of the process; to ensure they have a say during its conception phase and can identify with the final result of the Studio’s work. We strive to consciously participate in social and artistic initiatives taking place in the world we live in and still regard our work as a great source of fun.
