Be realistic. Demand the impossible.

Oh, hello! I’m Robert Samsonowitz, an army of one running this multi-disciplinary studio in Gothenburg, Sweden. It’s a design studio, an ink tank, an art making cave, a photo studio, a draw den, a designery, and I call it RBRT CREATIVE. Or in short bold letters with a slash: RBRT/CRTV.

I designed my first record sleeve back in 1993 using a photo copier, a ruler, glue and a pair of scissors. Now, 25 years later, I offer a range of services including: Visual Identities, Art Direction, Packaging Design, Book Design, Apparel Artwork, Posters, Stationery, Editorial Work, Web Design, Photography, Retouch and much more.

I have created designs, artwork and typographic work for brand identities, album covers, posters, brochures, apps, children’s books, stationery, t-shirts, rollups, websites, backdrops, ads, tote bags, book covers and tattoos.
