A key name in contemporary graphic art, Ich&Kar is known for its prolific, high-energy creations. Helena Ichbiah and Piotr Karczewski have worked together since 1992, both graduates of French art schools – Helena of the Ecole de Communication Visuelle and Piotr of Arts Décoratifs. Specializing in graphic art and design, this talented duo holds sway from London to Mexico, their work on global identity drawing attention from the four corners of the globe in fields as diverse as culture, luxury, corporate communications and gastronomy. Citrus colours for the Maison Troisgros restaurant in Roanne, vintage cards and pop-ups for Pierre Gagnaire’s Sketch in London, a fresh take on classics for Hélène Darroze at the Connaught, a dictionary menu for Derrière in Paris, a modernist Esperanto identity for the Condesa df hotel in Mexico, a seaside look for the Monte-Carlo Beach… Originality, imagination and poetry all come together in the places they design.
Trendsetters Ich&Kar are also the talent behind the Milk Factory brand, developing a communications and innovation strategy for French dairy products.
