designed in Amsterdam, inspired by Japan
A JAPANESE AESTHETIC
Hi, I'm Hannah the maker behind ANO Studio. I run a design studio and online shop based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands specialising in art prints and illustration.
A Japanese aesthetic runs throughout the things I make. So yes, I'm kinda in love with Japan and it keeps on being a boundless source of inspiration for my work. Combine this with my love for geometry and fine linework and you get what ANO Studio is all about.
Sustainability is important to me, so I strive to do as much as possible. For instance using soy inks where possible and printing on recycled FSC certified paper. Everything is produced and printed locally in The Netherlands. You know what even my bubble wrap is recycled, pretty cool right!
So ANO, does it actually mean something?
In Japanese ano あの can be used as a space filler in conversations, like you’re saying "umm..". It's a great way to fill up conversation when you are a bit shy or hesitant like I sometimes am!
