Studio Daniel Rother is a graphic design studio, based in Berlin. Working at the intersection of art, design and fashion the studios work includes conceptual collaborations, art direction, and graphic design for institutions, art galleries, artists, and the creative industry. The studio is currently working on A Gesture is a Liquid with Melissa Gordon (Brussels) to be published with Anagram Books in 2018. Recently the studio finished a visual identiy for the exhibition Affect Me by KAI 10 (Düsseldorf), FU Berlin and Spector Books.
