Dwalm is a design studio focusing on interactive experiences and the tactility of every day screens and printed matter. We combine graphic design, editing and web development. In the past years, we produced work for cultural and educational institutions, as well as for collectives and individuals in Hamburg, Amsterdam and Stockholm. We collaborate closely with the design studio Our Polite Society (OPSXD). Our backgrounds in music (The Press Group), fine arts, gaming, time-based media, research, skateboarding (Getting Money Getting Boards and Together Alone), have informed our working methods, expanded our network, and led to several autonomous projects. As we both grew up in the north German region Ostfriesland, we call our practise Dwalm. In the local sub-language Plattdeutsch, the word describes uprising steam, and in an expended sense vapor, fainting spells, sudden illnesses, daydreams or reveries.
