for which they design, the work of
programming, typographical design and
quantitative data visualization forms part
of their daily routine.
Since their student days in Aachen they
have shared an interest in generative
systems and independent design. They
began working together online with a
space which served as a platform and
somewhere to experiment with new
ideas as well as exchanging technical
knowledge and discussing projects.
ARNHEM IS THE CAPITAL of the
Province of Gelderland in the east of
The Netherlands. Rotterdam, in the
southeast, is the largest European port
and the second biggest in the world after
Singapore. Both cities serve as operational
bases for the members of the Catalogtree
studio – the designers Daniel Gross and
Joris Maltha.
This creative duo work on the premise
that form is equivalent to behavior,
therefore, regardless of the media
The work of Catalogtree draws inspiration
from architectural design, which they see
as fundamental due to its unique capacity
for programming human behavior. In
each process of work they establish a set
of rules where the content has special
importance. This enables them to respond
to the fl ow of dynamic information
derived from new media and also to offer
a refreshing viewpoint for the processing
of content for traditional media.
