Studio Trapped in Suburbia
+31 (0)20 2200165
Designduo Trapped in Suburbia works across a variety of design disciplines to transform design into experiences. They blend the fields of graphic, branding, spatial and interactive design and originality is always their starting point. Their thinking goes beyond the expected with exploding posters, oven baked books, foggy exhibitions and walls covered with sand paper.
Trapped in Suburbia embrace a witty playfulness and a willingness to experiment. Their niche then is letting it all hang out, pursuing their curiosity in a refreshing positive manner. They are proud of their nickname, The Harry Potters of design.
From their Amsterdam based studio, Cuby Gerards and Karin Langeveld work together on commissioned and self initiated projects.
