SYNOPSIS

Synopsis: spawned in late December 2001 out of the strong belief in doing good work, in going beyond the surface, in provoking thought, in touching emotions, in educating and exploring new ways in visual culture. This belief is still shared today by its founder Ovidiu Hrin and the current studio staff.

The graphic language of Synopsis is the result of a dedicated approach towards understanding & contextually solving the problems our clients face. Our work always involves a good deal of deep thought & focused research combined with a keen ability to listen and understand the contexts our clients face.

Synopsis develops visual identities, exhibition design identities, posters & catalogue design and of course logo design, custom designed typography & calligraphic works which come as a natural by-product of our 15+ years of experience.

The independent design studio employs talented people working on both cultural and commercial design projects for clients around the globe. For the sake of custom tailored solutions, the team has remained small and focused throughout the years, using a teleological approach towards the building of complex communication systems & visual identities.

TYPOPASSAGE

Since 2011 Ovidiu manages & curates TypopassageTM – an open air micro museum dedicated to Typography. The museum organizes 2 main events and 4 collateral events, edits a yearly publication and manages the online archive www.typopassage.ro.
