Studio Eyal & Myrthe

Agency for graphic & typo­graphic design: books, visual identities, websites, type design

“When you commission a design from Studio Eyal & Myrthe, rest assured it will be executed in a truly creative way. Myrthe will unleash her poetic sensibility, whilst Eyal will approach it with a characteristic mixture of creative spark, and constant search for crystal clarity. They each possess a remarkable ability in the use of light, giving it a vital role, resulting in virtual weightlessness, and a sublime lightness of hue. Their work is a genuine collaboration, and thus, despite their different approaches, the final design is a dynamic product of creative dialogue.

“You approach them seeking a solution, you receive a poem; and only after a while, you realize that the design is a genuine discovery. Reactions of other viewers serve as further testimony to the quality of their work. This convinces me even more that Studio Eyal & Myrthe truly delivers quality, improving and galvanizing the evolution of a new visual language.”


Michael van Hoogenhuyze,
Art historian, Leiden 2013

 

Eyal Holtzman studied Graphic & Typographic Design in The Hague at the Royal Academy of Art and then completed the Master course Type Design & Typography. Since 1996 he has been active as an independent artist, designer and lecturer.

In the book Dutch Type Jan Middendorp describes Eyal’s designs as being “among the most original alphabets produced in the Netherlands”, (…) “which were not based on any model or fashion but were pure invention, tapping into an idiom that no other type designer working in the Netherlands has ever used”.


Myrthe Stel
studied Graphic Design Communications at the Minerva Academy in Groningen. She combined graphic design with other disciplines such as screen printing and photo­graphy. After her studies she started teaching at the Minerva and later MIADA academy in Chongqing, China.
