Image Intro (dom-bo_studio_working-space.jpg)

dombek—bolay is a Düsseldorf-based design studio focusing on visual identity and brand development. We develop future-oriented strategies and flexible solutions for people and companies in the economic and cultural sectors.

Every customer introduces new challenges from different fields to us – and we are always curious and never stop learning. Sometimes we are educational experts, sometimes motorcycle experts, sometimes foodies, blockchain specialists and perhaps tomorrow quantum physicists – all with passion and high quality standards. We therefore attach great value to a good collaborative relationship with our customers and to tasks which we back 100 % and to which we can be fully committed.
