Graphic è Urbaninski.

Our joint experience combines both Graphic and Exhibition Design and one off temporary installations. We prefer an experimental approach, based upon improvising with local and recyclable materials on site. You see it’s all about interventions in urban space, allowing us not only to change the point of view of the spectator but also to develop new ways of perceiving the spaces’ original character.
