A firm fixture on the contemporary graphic design scene, Ich&Kar are known for their witty, prolific work. Paying particular attention to the meaning and relevance of their work, the duo made of Helena Ichbiah and Piotr Karczewski willingly switch between graphics and design. Ich&Kar explore all means of expression without ever forgetting the splash of humour and sincerity that features in all their work.
The duo interpret each project in a formal, direct language to reveal its essence. Merrily navigating the luxury and consumer worlds, Ich&Kar have developed a remarkably rich, distinctive style. Today, their designs can be seen in our homes and cities, sharing our everyday lives.
