In addition to providing design services for print, web and environment, Systems Studio curates, designs and produces exhibitions and publications, and hosts a programme of experimental workshop and events. Although varied, we understand all of these activities as belonging to a single project – an ongoing investigation into the present possibilities and limits of modernist design.

With experience in the fields of graphic and industrial design, philosophy and fine art, our studio is strengthened by the diverse backgrounds of its members. We engage in an open and thorough exchange to ensure that briefs respond fully to our clients’ needs. From a web design to a stationary item or exhibition, this process of analysis and discussion underpins all of our work. Our method is characterised by a rigorous and comprehensive attention to detail. We find that results surpass our clients' expectations.

Systems Studio is always looking for interesting people to work with, whether as clients or collaborators.

Giorgio del Buono

Giorgio’s practice is rooted in the principles of the International Typographic Style. He treats graphic design as a problem of form and function, resolved by meticulous thinking and honed craft. In 2013 Giorgio became a member of ISTD (International Society of Typographic Designers) receiving a commendation award.

As a Designer at Cartlidge Levene 2013 - 2017, Giorgio worked closely with architectural practices Herzog and De Meuron and Sergison Bates, public institutions such as Tate Galleries, The Design Museum and publishers Quarter Verlag and Aperture Foundation.

Giorgio is a designer and founding partner at Systems.

Michal Polak

Inspired by the clarity and rigour of modernist design, Michal’s practice strives for communicative clarity. His method, whilst systematic, is informed by intuition and lateral thought. His particular specialism is user experience, explored in the areas of wayfinding, typography and, web, with emphasis on their narrative dimension.

As a designer at Cartlidge Levene 2013 – 2017, Michal has been involved in delivering major wayfinding projects, including Tate Modern, London Aquatics Centre and M+ museum, Hong Kong. In this connection, he worked closely with architects Herzog & de Meuron and Zaha Hadid.
