About the project

Base is an international network of studios led by creatives, with studios is Brussels, New York and Geneva. Base designs ingeniously simple brands and builds unique personalities. They humanise corporations, launch visions and clarify the complex.

In 2016, when working for Base Design, I was asked to redesign their website. The visual language is an exercise in simplicity and common sense. The unobtrusive design allows the content and projects to take centre stage.
