With over 40 years of combined experience, Wkshps has worked with museums, arts organizations, not-for-profits, and other clients in the US and abroad. The studio was founded by partners Chris Wu and Prem Krishnamurthy, co-founder of Project Projects, winner of the Cooper Hewitt’s National Design Award for Communication Design. Our studio was conceived as a platform to collaborate with partners across art, architecture, education, and culture. We combine a rigorously conceptual approach with innovative modes of visual communication.

Wkshps is directed by Chris Wu and Prem Krishnamurthy. The core team includes Eric Price, Lizzy Onck, and Sarah Demeuse.


We embrace the workshop as primary mode of collaborating with our clients. Prior to design development, we ask questions and take time to listen to the collective voices behind any given project. This way, we can fine-tune aspirations, hone communication, and also develop a trusting working relationship. We then move into design development. For us, graphic design goes beyond finding form for a content: it is about developing a system that suits a story—whether that is an institutional identity or a brochure.

With Whom

We work primarily with museums, brands, non-profit, and cultural institutions, as well as artists, architects, designers, fashion studios, and hospitality companies. We are curious and engaged in exploring novel collaborations.
