Template is a visual design studio run by Lasse van den Bosch Christensen and Marlon Harder. Our work takes on any form of graphic design and digital development: from classic printed matter to web programming or a mix between the two.
As a studio we are dedicated to every phase of the design process, starting each assignment from scratch and following it through to a fully developed concept or identity.
Rapid prototyping is a central key in our workprocess. In conversation with our clients we constantly test and probe the practice of our ideas leading to series of refinements, versions and improvements to the final outcome.
We continuously explore (new and old) tools and media, coming to solutions outside of the ordinary; an approach visible in the projects we've done over the last years.

Their work makes a playful case for rethinking and reconsidering media and communications technologies.

The concept of Localhost's website revolves around the idea of Reading, Writing and Executing. The website is part wiki, part directory listing—as the wiki is updated with new content, the file tree lets the visitor explore where this information is stored and which permissions are granted to it.
Aaaan.net functions as a hub that communicates the projects of Annet Dekker, Annette Wolfsberger and Sandra Fauconnier. Initially all blog posts are displayed, but filters let the visitor sort the content in an open matter, visually affecting the website in the process.
The graduation catalog for Piet Zwart Institute Media Design 2014 is a mix of sources. Pictures from the exhibition 'Unlinked', excerpts from graduate theses and, most importantly, project pages from the self served Piet Zwart wiki that were directly printed from the browser window.
The website for London based fashion designers Trager Delaney is influenced by the framesets that appeared on websites frequently during the 90s. More simple and stylized, the site's columns can be resized or collapsed, at the same time changing the content within the frame.
