A type & identity focused design studio based in the Philippines


The studio is founded and run by Karl Adrian Aguro, a graphic designer hailing from the province of Bukidnon, Philippines.





Formed in 2017, we are a tiny branding & design studio based in one of Mindanao’s progressive cities, Cagayan de Oro. Our main work focuses on branding + identity and print design. We craft compelling brand stories for our partners & clients through the strong use of typography and illustrations.

We have an affinity for experimental treatment through the strong use of typography in communicating visual solutions. We gravitate to obscure yet effective ways and methods of visual problem-solving.

Uncurated Studio was initially our reaction to this age of content curation. We're convinced that the more you curate, the more you lose touch of your authentic self. Authenticity is important to us more than anything else.

We also think that curation dictates a certain style. We like to believe we don't have a style when it comes to our work. Style can be very limiting, and every communication problem has different solution.
