Bunker is an independent cultural planning studio.
We specialize in visual identity, as well as book and web design. We develop online and offline projects for cultural institutions, the publishing industry, and companies.
We opened in 2006, and from the very start we’ve always applied the principles of good design to the development of visual and graphic solutions for corporate clients, the publishing industry, cultural institutions and digital experiences.
For us, good design is the artisan approach that we take in our works. We commit to achieve beauty through maximum functionality; our tools are technology, creativity and empathy. Our job is infused with a real design culture.
We are based in Modena, with partners in the Emilia-Romagna region and clients across Italy. Our team works in an environment of ongoing communication, with a great passion for graphic design, usability, and typography. Our masters are Munari, Noorda, Huber, Castiglioni, Magistretti, Mari and Zeldman.
