studio NUR is a Budapest-based graphic design studio
founded by Eszter Laki
We love branding based on manual gestures. We use clean typography and hand-drawn details. We love brainstorming on the full concept from the scratch – we manage the whole process from the first sketch to the photo documentation. We delve into a project to understand its personal motivation and follow that lead. We work with passion and commitment and appreciate the same enthusiasm on the part of our clients. Our international assignments range from product identity through editorial design to clients from the hospitality industry.
We cultivate traveling as our main source of inspiration therefore we chose a name which has several parallel meanings in different languages.
Nur (Noor) means Pomegranate (Armenian), Just (German), Light (Arabic), Fire (Hebrew), Sex epil (Romanian)
