Studio Stephan Lerou is a small design agency in the historic center of ’s-Hertogenbosch/The Netherlands. The studio realizes communication concepts, art direction and visual identities for a wide range of customers and initiatives in the commercial and cultural field.

The studio’s work is based on a conceptual design approach and is strongly oriented on print media, typography and human interaction. The result is bright, minimalist design with a balance between playful and serious.

Studio Stephan Lerou puts together teams from a network of creatives. The objective is always an authentic, project-specific and high-impact graphic solution.
Ask us for ideas not for decoration!

White flag
We always wanted a flag as our logo mark because flags are used to indicate identity and to symbolize goals. Setting up a flag possess the meaning of conquering something, achieve goals through cooperation! The color white is the color of new beginnings, it's a methaphor for silence, purity and simplicity. Our logo mark is a white flag. The most minimal yet strongest recognizable flag design. Symbol of peace and honesty.
