ATTAK • Powergestaltung / Attak in short

Hailing from lovely 's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands, ATTAK is an independent and dynamic design duo formed in 2004.

The idea driven output is based on subculture ethics and created for small as well as big companies all over the world. A visually arresting crossover between graphic design, type design, illustration and art.

ATTAK itself likes to capture the wide range of work by the word “Powergestaltung”. Always aiming to add thunder and cut some edge.

ATTAK / what we do

ATTAK is a versatile creative lab. We operate in a wide range of disciplines [graphic design, illustration, type design, new media design, motion design and art]. This output is known by the term Powergestaltung.

Our work is idea driven and based on subculture ethics. It has strong roots in traditional print and crafts like screenprinting, but nevertheless embraces new technology. We like to explore the boundaries and possibilities of techniques, ideas and rules. This results in an outcome that's one of a kind and therefor stands out.

Expect a visually arresting, direct, bright, innovative and well crafted style.

ATTAK / how we work

We value clients who value our artistic ideals and therefore demand a design that requires the utmost of our artistic abilities.

Each project gets it own unique approach. In a personal dialogue the clients needs are distilled, explored and shaped into a unique visual output which makes our clients qualities stand out.

We will search for the best idea and approach. An idea that reflects the clients demands and will twist the spectators head is what we look and sign for.

ATTAK / philosophy

We believe in the power of an idea. The idea sets the path for the creating. The idea determines the way of working, the tools and style to transfer the intended feeling or message.

With use of icons of the global consciousness, be it altered, combined, twisted or questioned, and radio waves of associative thinking, we communicate a contemporary thought.

We feel that true creative output transcends the primary goal of communicating information. Combined with skill and dedication it touches a chord and stays in the eye and mind of the spectator. It rings on and becomes part of a larger thought and being in the world. By always trying to understand the client's drive and goals we discover the space to work and the tools for the visual translation of it's core and ambitions.

We tend to look the public in the eye and speak at them in a strong and colourful voice. We love to state with an unavoidable image that on second look turns out to be layered and more subtle.

Working with, instead of for people we feel we are part of a community. A community of people that want to contribute to the world in a happy and constructive way.

ATTAK / share

We believe in sharing. Throughout the years we did various workshops and lectures and have been involved in different ways of teaching at AKV|St.Joost.

Via this ways we share our ideas and discuss contemporary creativity. Spread knowledge.
