Hello. My name is Simon.
One of the labels you could put on me is graphic designer. Another one could be photographer. A third could be illustrator and a fourth web designer. A fifth could be husband. A sixth…

- The ShopPrincipal, 2014 - presentThe Shop Studio is the entity behind the client work of Simon Birky Hartmann. With core competencies in print and visual identity design, it can also cover other digital design needs thanks to its tight-knit network of amazingly contractors and resources. The Shop is also an online store in which I sell resources for designer. This hobby of mine has now evolved into an integral part of the work I’m doing. It forces me to hunt the overlooked details in my everyday landscape, and to extract the best elements out of it.
