About Speaker

Offshore Studio is a Zurich-based design studio, founded by Isabel Seiffert and Christoph Miler. Their projects have a strong focus on editorial design, typography and storytelling. Next to commissions and collaborations, Offshore Studio investigates critical issues of design, media and globalisation in self-initiated projects.

The design practice of Offshore Studio reflects the fundamental idea of ‘Offshoring’—the relocation of working processes to other cities, countries and continents. Going offshore means to elude closed territories and start to connect elsewhere. Driven by the aim to explore the remote, unknown and invisible, being and thinking offshore embodies one of the studios’ key principles. In doing so, their modes of production become inevitably collaborative, transnational and decentralized, questioning the traditional boundaries of space, time and professions.
