Studio Victor Balko is a multidisciplinary practise for graphic design, based in Frankfurt, Germany.

We specialize in print (as in books, brochures, posters, etc.), but we also create identities and design websites. From time to time we do illustrations or animations. Download our latest PDF portfolio here.

Victor Balko graduated summa cum laude from the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach in 2012, where he studied with Prof. Sascha Lobe and Prof. Martin Liebscher. After internships at Spin and mind design in London, he worked as Art Director for Steidl Publishers from 2013 until 2018. From 2010 to 2015, he co-published and designed Album, a magazine for contemporary photography.
