Submarine Channel

With its fresh, deceptively simple and directs designs, De Designpolitie is one of the most original design studios in The Netherlands. One of their well-known, collective projects is Gorilla, visual columns which interpret contemporary events in a sharp, funny, and sometimes poignant way.

In this Profile we get an in depth look in the creative process of Richard van der Laken and co-founder Pepijn Zurburg. De Designpolitie (The Design Police) is on a mission and the mission is to create content rather than just visualizing other people’s ideas.

Dutch Profiles is a series commissioned by DutchDFA, produced by Submarine.
