Hungry lab

HungryLab is a studio based in Riga, specializing in marketing strategy and media independent graphic design: logo & identity, posters, interactive design/development, etc. We do PR, too.

Along with the commercial work, we do self-initiated and  noncommercial projects.

Our main goal is to achieve good results, and we strongly believe that research, problem solving and, hence, good design is the way to it.
