frame magazine

Frame magazine is a bimonthly publication on contemporary interior design and products.

We were part of the Frame design team from 2010 until 2018. Apart from designing the pages of each issue, our work involved commissioning photographers, illustrators and cover artists.

Because we didn’t use fixed layouts, there was a lot of space for experimentation with the design, structure and content.

‘For many years Cathelijn and Mariëlle have been stars in coming up with straightforward, but impactful approaches to design magazines, catalogues and books for Frame Publishers.’


Robert Thiemann, founder and CEO of Frame Publishers

Frame is known for its bold and highly tactile covers that distinguish the magazine in the shelves. Conceptualizing each issue’s theme in an enticing way, we added extra layers to the 2D print using innovative techniques and applications such as embossing, metallic foil or gloss-lacquer. Where relevant, we commissioned established and up-and-coming artists to create a custom artwork for the cover.
