Avant les Vacances is a design studio for visual concepts and was founded in 2016 while studying Graphic Design, Photography and Art Research at the HfG Karlsruhe. An intense episode during summer 2019 led to the idea that the studio could be associated with the smooth feeling and high productivity at the day before leaving for holidays.

Even with less there must be the possibility to create something working and meaningful. The essentials for communication already lay in the abstract understanding of the beholder's mind and can be used to develop intuitively legible surfaces. The outcome works inclusive and independent from cultural and social backgrounds.

Through minimalism not only the content survives much longer in visual loud times, it also gets easier to find appropriate solutions in every kind of media. Here the interweaving of written language, symbols and image giving technology play an important role.
