Graphic design. Strategic Thinking. Custom tailored visual communication solutions.
Synopsis was born out of the strong belief in doing outstanding work, in going beyond the surface and overcoming limitations, 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.
Founded in 2001, the independent design studio employs a team of talented designers working on both cultural and commercial design projects for clients around the globe.
The studio’s works (posters, books, magazines, packaging and complex visual identity and branding projects) have been exhibited and awarded by many prestigious international institutions (The European Design Awards, Type Directors Club, Graphis International, Museum of Design Zurich). Case studies of Synopsys are constantly featured as examples of good practice in graphic design theory and practice books professional publications.
