Who is OOOMS
Studio OOOMS is run by Guido Ooms and Karin van Lieshout.
Guido Ooms (’74) graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2000.
After working as a freelance designer at different companies he started his own studio. Next to running the studio he also teaches design at the School of Arts in Utrecht.
Karin van Lieshout (’74) graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2001. She has a degree in teaching (BIK, professional artist in class) and worked in various designcollectives before she joined forces with Guido.
As a team, they fuel one another’s creativity with wit and humour.
Both designers have their own qualities, each contributing to a part of studio OOOMS. Guido’s enthousiasm and playful approach towards almost everything makes sure that the studio has enough new ideas coming in. Karin’s down-to-earth attitude makes sure that the good ideas become reality.
