Art and design studio Studio Job was founded by Job Smeets in 1998 in the renaissance spirit, combining traditional and modern techniques to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. Joined in 2000 by graphic designer Nynke Tynagel the duo went on to work with a vast range of high profile clients and collectors.Based in both Belgium and the Netherlands, Job Smeets leads as art director with Nynke Tynagel as graphic designer. Technique, science and ornamental designs come together in their work as examples of what can be described as Gesamtkunstwerk – a total art work or an all embracing art form.
Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel of Studio Job have selected 7 designs from their library of icons and images. The collection reflects a retrospect of the history of Studio Job. They used archetypical drawings and these universal symbols are combined as iconographic elements for patterns and compositions, ultimately creating 6 designs: Industry, Labyrinth, Perished, Alt Deutsch, l’Afrique and Withered Flowers (Black and Color).
