WePlayDesign is a Swiss design studio run by Sophie Rubin and Cédric Rossel.

Our range of work spans across a whole spectrum; visuals identity, posters, motion design, fonts, webdesign, signage, book covers, catalogs and object.

Our approach to design is playful, since we believe it is a creative way to solve communication issues.

This perspective allows us to create projects that are diverse and to offer novel graphic solutions.

The play theme enables us to keep an experimental edge as well as an open mind to creative work.
