Studio Lin is the graphic design practice of Alex Lin. Our work process is founded on a desire to explore new territory through challenging collaborations with creative visionaries in the fields of architecture, industrial design, art and fashion. By combining the studio’s analytical rigor with strong input from external forces, the resulting design is exponentially enhanced: 1 + 1 =3. This formula also permits a fluid aesthetic to prevail. Behind every Studio Lin design is a highly defined rationale but not a singular style. The common denominator is a fresh, modern sensibility that eschews the overtly trendy in favor of lasting impact.

Paul Loebach Identity and Print
A set of printed materials for industrial designer Paul Loebach. All the papers used were found directly at the foil stamping facilities. Typically used for backing up boxes or as dividers, we specified chipboard, black art board and white art board to foil stamp white.

Project 3 of 5
Identity design for stampa, an online boutique offering limited edition prints by well known illustrators. The logo mark was inspired by a rolled up print in an "S" formation. To further distinguish the brand, we commissioned a custom typeface for use throughout print and online pieces.

The Future Perfect Banner
The Future Perfect in Manhattan needed something to help people spot their store despite having a construction scaffold directly in front. We came up with a 57 foot banner with The Future Perfect logo completely made out of brass grommets. All said and done, close to 1,000 grommets were hand applied to the banner creating a rather crafty take on the ubiquitous banner.

United Bamboo Cat Calendar
A 2011 calendar featuring cats dressed in clothing designed by United Bamboo. Days of each month are blind embossed onto each page for a subtle effect allowing the cats to be the main focus. On the back of each page, there is a story about each cat model. Comes in a silkscreened sleeve. Photography by Noah Sheldon
