Studio Ward Goes is an office for graphic design and visual research based in between Paris and Amsterdam. Working on both commissioned projects and independent research projects in digital, printed and three-dimensional media.
Being trained in media design and cultural anthropology Ward looks at design and typography as part of public debate, visual culture and public space. In his research he documents, categorises and re-contextualises seemingly mundane visual vocabularies in public space and public debate to offer new perspectives. However graphic design serves as the basis of all his projects he works in different media, among which screen-based, printed, and three-dimensional media.
Ward obtained a bachelor diploma (BA) in media design at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2013 and a master diploma (MSc) in cultural anthropology at the University of Utrecht in 2016. After gaining work experience as an intern at Studio Dumbar (Rotterdam, NL) and Base Design (Brussels, BE), he works independently since 2014, while tutoring at the Design Academy Eindhoven from 2016 to 2018. In different capacities Ward has worked with organisations and companies such as the Technical University of Eindhoven, MU Artspace, Effenaar, Studio Müller van Tol, Kaan architects and Chanel.
