Kapitza is a multi-disciplinary design studio run by sisters Nicole and Petra Kapitza who share a passion for print, pattern, nature, minimalism and colour.
They have studied and worked both in Germany and London before setting up their own company, Kapitza, in 2004 with the intent to apply their broad experience in graphic design, book design, digital software and illustration exclusively to their own practice.
They work across a range of media, including non-alphanumeric fonts, i-pad apps and three-dimensional work. They collaborate with a variety of international clients to create exhibitions and products featuring their distinctive artworks, such as stationery, canvasses, calendars, wall stickers and tiles, textiles and postage stamps.
Their artworks are bright, colourful and minimalist, featuring abstract graphic art and flower illustrations in bold colour compositions and compelling arrangements.
Kapitza have gained a global following in the design world for their inspirational pattern art books and picture fonts, which are available from their beautifully designed online shop. They also published the critically acclaimed book Geometric in 2008. Their deep love of nature is an ongoing concern, as can be seen in the ever growing Font and illustration collection, ‘We Love Nature’ and in their new project, Organic, which has been nominated for the Designs of the Year 2013 Award by the Design Museum London.
Kapitza supersede commercial boundaries with their own mix of genuine curiosity and technical expertise.
