About us


We are a graphic design studio based in The Hague and Berlin helping nonprofits and philanthropies to make social impact.

We collaborate with committed people working at the frontlines of the world’s most pressing social, scientific and environmental issues.

PITCH BLACK GRAPHIC DESIGN, founded by Stefan Hanser and Jan Ciecierski in 2008, is a graphic design studio specialised in Corporate Design based in Berlin and The Hague with a workspace in Brussels.
Our clients include social, scientific, political and cultural institutions, associations and NGOs acting internationally in the field of development aid, philanthropy and science as well as in societal issues.


With a strong expertise in corporate design, brochure and information design we help our clients to stand out within their sector.

We create consistent and authentic presentations of companies and institutions – from conceptional basics to the practical realisation of print and online media. Our design process is based on a thorough product and task analysis to be able to deliver striking, tactile and highly communicative visual identities. A strong corporate design demonstrates strategy, vision and longevity, thus creating trust and credibility. All media forms are designed on the defined basis of the brand, so the visual communication always has a direct connection to the companies’ identity.
