Pierre Ferrandez and Eliote Shahmiri met in 2006 at the National College of Arts and Design (ENSAAMA) Olivier de Serres in Paris. It was during their time of study together that they developed their skills in Graphic design, Typography Illustration and global Art Direction. Eliote and Pierre both worked as Art Directors in highly regarded studios such as H5 and Encore in Paris, as well as Exposure and Pure DNA in London. The two have since decided to join forces by creating an independent design office: POLICESTUDIO. In 2015, they are joined by the Estienne graduated typeface designer Arthur Alazard.
