DINAMO is a Swiss design practise established by Johannes Breyer and Fabian Harb, based in Basel and Berlin. We’re interested in the overlap between graphic design production, bespoke or retail typefaces, technology and education, and how these things can translate into physical objects.

Johannes and Fabian are visiting teachers to various art academies. We have been invited for workshops and lectures by educational institutions internationally.
