Artifact — independent graphic design studio founded by the art director Manco Olsen, based in Twin Peaks.

With special interest in deep knowledge, new design thinking methods and approaches through collaboration. We don´t believe in monsters, hacking or dev ninjas. Just hard work.



“Though completely swamped, the boat was nearly unharmed. Swimming round it we picked up the floating oars, and lashing them across the gunwale, tumbled back to our places. There we sat up to our knees in the sea, the water covering every rib and plank, so that to our downward gazing eyes the suspended craft seemed a coral boat grown up to us from the bottom of the ocean and land places.”

Floating on the waves we saw the abandoned boat, as for one instant it tossed and gaped beneath the ship’s bows like a chip.
