We've moved to a new office and are working on a new website. Please look around if you're interested in what we've done in the past, but major updates are ahead!

The story

WE USED TO play it by the book. Get paid on a regular basis. Have weekends off. Suffer the Monday blues. Run our heads off. Participate in 100 meetings a week. Get bored. Dream of something else… SO ONE DAY we decided it was time for a change. We took a deep breath and jumped, taking a good look at OUR FRIENDS who are artists, writers, designers, photographers, filmmakers, musicians, cooks, activists and WHO SHARE OUR LOVE for great ideas, warm gatherings, good design, beautiful music, texts that make you wonder, art works never to forget, nice food, slow time, new discoveries, fun, a better world,… and THAT BECAME OUR AIM, to go back to basics and to share all this through what we do.



PANACHE TOWERS was a project space, a meeting place and a distribution platform dedicated to the exposure of artists, designers, writers and (art) organisations.

PANACHE STUDIO makes communication work, designs publications, invents campaigns, builds websites and develops graphic identities.

Philip Marnef has a degree in Germanic Languages, but studied Illustrative Design afterwards. From 2007 to 2013 he worked as graphic designer at a design agency, where he quickly became a one-man-webfactory and specialised himself in both design and development – a rare combination. By working on various web projects from a to z, he is familiar with every aspect of the job: from information architecture to user experience, from design to development.
