Blaqk – Greg Papagrigoriou, Chris Tzaferos — Athens, Greece

"Good design is something beautiful, clean and functional, for us. What we like in design is that through it you can find elements that, when used appropriately, can be transformed into something beautiful and functional at the same time."

Blaqk consists of two Athens-based graphic designers, Greg Papagrigoriou and Chris Tzaferos, also as known as Simek. Simek has been involved with graffiti since 1999 while Papagrigoriou started doing wall painting in 2009. They both admired one another’s work and soon started collaborating under the name Blaqk. The duo combine graphical elements with geometric forms, patterns and calligraphic typography. And they use a lot of natural textures, constantly experimenting with new material and design methods.
