Branding. Design & Art Direction

SilkEight is a Bucharest-based studio specialized in branding, graphic design and art direction within the fields of art, culture and commerce. Founded in 2008 by Stefan Trifan, our practice has developed out of a shared desire to create honest, intelligent and beautifully crafted work. We take a grounded and considered approach to design. Our process is decidedly personal — we collaborate with our clients to create thoughtful and compelling responses that reflect their needs and values.

Over the last few years, we have created identities, stationery, packaging, publications, printed materials, and award-winning websites for a wide range of clients — both large and small — in the public and private sectors.

Brand & Identity
We develop brand identity systems for businesses of all sizes, from startups to longstanding, established brands. Our capabilities span the entire process from early development to final execution. In addition to brand assets, we have comprehensive experience in developing brand application guidelines and documentation.
