A beach sunny day — Selfie

                                      Artifact is an independent graphic design studio — founded by the art director and illustrator Manco Olsen, based in Twin Peaks (Washington). With a background in music, he creates a balance between his artistic vision with responsability to create thoughtfully executed solutions tailored to each client. His work ranges from identities, print and digital design to photo and art direction for graphic and motion design.


After a regular design education and getting a diploma in Graphic Design in Buenos Aires, I moved to NYC and started an Art Direction work for different agencies and a wide range of brands mainly focused on music. Now I drive my own studio based in Twin Peaks.
