Raw Color

Raw Color blends the fields of Graphic Design, Photography and Product Design in their Eindhoven based studio. The studio has been initiated by the designers Christoph Brach and Daniera ter Haar. Together with their team they are working on self initiated and commissioned projects. The materialisation of colour plays a key role, and can be seen as the core of the studio.

It’s a relief to put names to projects. Raw Color, an Eindhoven-based studio consisting of one Daniera ter Haar and one Christoph Brach, are responsible for a number of impossibly great projects and collaborations that I’ve seen spread out across the ether in a beguiling one-image-wins-prizes sort of way.

Christoph Brach and Daniera ter Haar form Raw Color, a multidisciplinary studio based in Eindhoven (The Netherlands). Their work is ‘raw’ because it dives towards the core, striving for simplicity. And it’s ‘color’ not only because they strongly master the art of colours, but also because it’s an element present in all the different fields they explore – graphic design, photography and product –, uniting and highlighting their work’s diversity.

There’s a cleanliness and simplicity to their aesthetic, an aspect they try to communicate and uphold in their visual work, with color, of course, being the unifying element.
