K.Y.D. is
Caroline Dath + Damien Safie + Esther Poch
+ guests

For each project the studio develops its graphic design around an idea, a concept closely related to the subject involved. Graphic design should not exist without ideas. When sense makes graphic-design then design-graphic makes sense.

Kidnap Your Designer is the name of a Brussels graphic design agency.

This studio was founded in 2006 by Caroline Dath, a graduate of Saint-Luc Liège and ERG. Damien Safie, a classmate from ERG, joined her in 2008 as partner. Esther Poch teamed up permanently in 2018. It produces creative works using typography and printing techniques for clients from the music, art, design or architecture fields. Cultural institutions and associations also missions the studio on their visual communication tools. Kidnap Your Designer also produces experimental and self-produced projects, ehibitions & workshops (‘It's Better Here’, ‘Note’, postcards, poster,…).

Caroline and Damien both teach at ERG (École de Recherche Graphique) Brussels, in the Media section.

So do as you're told and kidnap your designer if you want great work!

And don't worry mom & dad!
We won't be really kidnaped...
Well we hope! K.Y.D. is an allusion to
Kill your Idols as well as many other stuff...
So don't panik and carry on scrolling!
