Trapped in Suburbia are an experimental design studio in The Hague that approaches identity and editorial commissions with an acute sense of play.

“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll understand.”

Our designs are at first an art of dealing with people; it focusses on human interaction and engaging your audience. We don’t expect them to sit back and relax, we want to take them on a graphic journey and surprise them. Maybe sometimes we make them feel uncomfortable, maybe we make them smile. But always we try to open up the senses and set them out to seek and explore. Your audience is not just a target group, they are part of the design elements and we strive to immerse them in narrative design. We see ourselves as storytellers, critical design thinkers and strategists who are aiming to create valuable and tangible experiences for people.
