Arwen and Matthijs Ronner are the two brothers who started the studio 15 years ago. Back then everyone was calling them ‘de jongens Ronners’ (translated as
the Ronner boys). But like every boy that grows up, the studio was getting older and bigger so they had to change their name into something more appropriate. Still referring to their catchy last name they changed their name to ’studio de Ronners’. In Belgium, it sounds a little funkier, but that makes it even better.
We are a studio for print and digital design. We love bold ideas and bright concepts. Our portfolio is broadly oriented: from websites for start-ups, architectural publications and exhibition design to brand campaigns and identities for cultural organizations. Apart from design, we are passionate about beer and clean typography.
Graphic designers: Paul Ibou, (Belgian), Karol Sliwka, (Polish)
Belgian designer: Muller Van Severen

US design brand agency: We Are Collins
Speak up, stand out, dare to make mistakes, don’t follow the hype and have fun while doing this.
As a studio, we are very passionate about beer branding. So it isn’t any wonder Arwen and Matthijs are shareholders of ‘Maallust’, a beer brand they co-founded, and—of course—designed. As well as the beer range, the design and its custom-made typeface keep on evolving.
We are a small but flexible team of creative designers. The perfect balance between Dutch boldness and Belgian finesse. As founders Arwen and Matthijs put the creatives in the right direction, supporting each of them to try new things and speak up for themselves, every opinion counts! Wilfred was their first intern and keeps everybody sharp with his lovable perfectionism and drive. Lieselot was born brainstorming and adds the unmissable female touch. Robbert keeps everything clean and works so fast he probably designed a book while typing this. And as for Thomas, he is the most thorough designer you will ever meet!
