About the Studio

Humain is a design studio founded by Jan Petry and Charlotte Ernst. As a close-knit creative collective with a file of curious pioneers, we combine our experience to create high-quality and targeted digital and physical experiences, often based on brand strategies that we write ourselves. We always face new challenges with an open heart and hunger for learning. We solve problems in small teams, which are especially suitable for this job. This makes us agile, efficient and cost-effective for our clients – even without bloated teams or egos.

Manifesto

We are committed to the beauty of simplicity and its power. We believe simplification eliminates superfluous noise and ensures that the necessary stands out as it deserves. That is why we love white spaces and observe every detail, even what you probably did not notice. We are able to enhance human experiences. We think, we design and we improve products that make everyday life easier. We have set ourselves the goal of finding simple solutions to complex problems, and we use our attention to this very detail to take care of strategy, design and development.

Methodology

Our design process has two equally important aspects – functional and visual. Functional design should make projects effective: Who do we talk to, what is the strategy, how will people interact with it? Visual design is the creation, that everyone sees and makes an unforgettable impression. The end result can be a simple logo design, a website, or a holistic brand experience.
