Profile
Think Work Observe is a graphic design studio based in Udine (Italy), founded in December 2011 by Piero Di Biase and Alberto Moreu.

We work on commissioned projects in the commercial, cultural and editorial field covering all areas of print and interactive design, with a strong focus on typography, including design and distribution of a range of typefaces. Our fonts have been used by several designers around the world, and are featured in well known publications and blogs.

Unfortunately there are no intern positions available for graphic design students, nonetheless we will have a look at all the submitted portfolios, for possible collaborations.
