Van Hise Studio is the studio of American art director and designer Carrie Van Hise. Based in Barcelona since 2001, Carrie specializes in brand identity systems, visual communications and surface design for the fashion, hospitality, design & interiors and arts industries.
Guided by mid-century design principles Carrie strives to create clarity from complexity, to simplify and emphasize the essence of a brand through the creation of coherent visual languages. Her aesthetic is defined by a balance between timeless and contemporary design, both bold and elegant.
With ten years experience in New York and another ten in Barcelona Carrie has collaborated with a broad range of brands such as Pertegaz, Casa Decor, Hotel Pulitzer Barcelona, Tres Tintas BCN, SushiSamba NYC, The Ford Foundation, IBM and artist Maya Lin. Before moving to Barcelona Carrie was lead designer at Corsair, a brand communications and digital agency in New York. Prior to Corsair, Carrie worked for Zona Inc., the 1990’s concept store based in SoHo, New York.
